I'm 39. I don't feel any older yet but constantly I'm reminded of how much time has passed. My new summer student at work is 18 which is a constant reminder of the age gap. It's crazy how fast time passes.I turned 48 today, yes I was born on Day of the Dead in Mexico. I don't feel old but I have noticed my back hurts a bit after leaning over and working on my car. I have hair where I don't need it and none where I do. At what age did you guys start to feel old?
Very similar story on this end. Not pleasant for sure unable to do things for yourself you always did. It was a hell of a thing and quite a fight (one of the few ever) between wife and me when I finally accepted and gave in to hire out the lawn work.Age 54, that was it for me, the point where I became elderly and infirm.
Maybe sooner than others. But that's when I could not do a workout anymore. My body failed due to high antiRNP antibodies (autoimmune disease) causing mitochondrial dysfunction, and Hashimoto's. I went from being strong and able to lift 50 pound dumbbells to unable to lift 5 pounds more than a few times. And any effort, like using the chainsaw for a few minutes, requiring hours of recovery.
Heading to the doc in a few days, I may ask for body building steroids in an attempt at regaining some strength and endurance. I can no longer walk around the block without muscle failure.
I AM jealous! I had a hard time saying out loud when I turned 60! Turned sixty six last week. Wife and I do laugh about something we used to talk about. When musch younger ,we used to always say "why are those old people in the stores always in bad moods n just a little angry!?" LOL Now we know.I am 68,,, will have to let you know...I dont feel old yet.......
I suppose I started to feel old when I was around 74-75 years old. However, that's just physical. I don't feel old mentally, but I can see it coming out there on the horizon. Just can't tell how far off that is.I turned 48 today, yes I was born on Day of the Dead in Mexico. I don't feel old but I have noticed my back hurts a bit after leaning over and working on my car. I have hair where I don't need it and none where I do. At what age did you guys start to feel old?
