I have 3 and a half hours until midnight here when I will turn 40.
I know I’m not the oldest on here but I’m feeling really old.
I joined these forums when I was 22!! Still pink of cheek! Full of piss and vinegar! Now I’m just full of shit.
Between 30-35 I found out about my type 2 diabetes, broke my arm, had 2 surgeries, and my body slowly starting hurting more and more. The amount of sound that comes from my joints when I stand up is absurd.
How do you feel about getting old? Are you planning on aging gracefully? Do you want to cling desperately to your youth?
I plan on clingy desperately to my youth and living vicariously through my kids!
I’ve been struggling a bit with the concept of 40. I know that it isn’t really THAT old but it’s fucking 40! I’ll never be in my 30’s again and that depresses me.
But it is what it is. We are time’s unwilling servant. Have to make the most of it while we’re here.
If anyone else has a birthday tomorrow... happy birthday!!!
