    47 today

    I felt better at 35 than I did at 18. But all the hard living has finally caught up with me. My everything hurts. I’m usually just happy to get everything going in the same direction.

    Next thing you'll find is that 2 years seemed like 4 months.

    Watch the Kominsky Method on Netflix. At least it will make you laugh at your experience... My favorite line "Every morning I wake up and ask What part of me is not working today"

    Happy Birthday. I was 20 when you were born. I just finished my stretches so I'm actually mobile this morning... :)

    All of the fun you had in your youth starts to catch up to you around 50. If I had know that was going to live this long, I'd have partied harder!

    On the plus side - I don't look a day over 80.

    Happy birthday.

    I turned 47 in July. So far, and to my considerable shock, I am not hurting much. I didn't live particularly hard, so that probably helped. The only real problem is my stomach and GI tract can no longer process some of the things I ate in my youth. Kind of a win, in the grand scheme.

    Happy Birthday GoodTexan! Many more. I'm with ColoradoJeff...a regular routine of stretching and exercise can make a big difference physically, mentally/emotionally and even spiritually if one's so inclined.

    There is something magical that happens between 69 and 70. You get old.

    It ain't the miles, it's the roads you take.

    My wife asked me to move a plant this morning. My back will hurt for days.

    Happy Birthday!

    55 here, but getting to eat off the 55+ menu isn't much consolation... Lol. I need to finally take up some exercise regimen. I slept in today and am feeling run over right now. Not atypical, but a little worse than usual. I've also recently realized that if I snooze my morning alarm for a while, I get up feeling worse.

    It's not the miles you traveled, it's the stops you made along the way.

    Haha yeah and not many were "highway miles"!
    I felt better at 47 than I do at 60, but if you stop abusing your body with hard work maybe you can slow the damage...
    I did a whole lot of damage after 50, basically working hard instead of working smart.
    But part of my problem was taking on elder care and working on the hoarder parent property, thinking I could "fix" stuff.

    Happy Birthday!
