Default depressing thinking about my bodies age

does anyone else think about this often

the age of the body.. that it's just so painful, it makes you feel older than you are? (I struggle with this a lot)

I'm not even 50, and my body makes me feel about 200

thinking about the fact that it's so hard to do things that at my age should be so easy is so depressing, I even sometimes feel a bit guilty about it (even though I've put on weight and don't really exercise), the chronic pain isn't my fault

does anyone else feel like this, and when you start thinking about it how do you feel?

Yes. To make it worse I foolishly moved to a three story home in 2014. Sometimes my knee buckles going down stairs.

2 times per year I have a busy time at work and I am run ragged running around and I am too old for it.


Sort of a side note I get depressed thinking about all the invasive things that will have to be done to my body in the future.
- colonoscopy;
- mammogram;
- my teeth will probably need some work.

I have chronic pain from issues with bones and nerves. Iíll be getting more shots and most likely surgery. I suppose itíll be an on-going thing. The actual pain is not super painful, just constant. The physical pain really doesnít bother me that much.

Iím in my early 50ís, too young for these ailments they say at the doctorís office. Alas, either I am just not made of great genetics or stress sped my breaking; probably a combination of both.

I do watch my diet and am normal weight. I have not been exercising at all lately due to this condition, but am told I need to do certain exercises as physical therapy and that I should start exercising. I did, at least, walk around the block yesterday, should do it again today.

Aside from that, I feel young, vibrant, and attractive. I donít mind being my age. I suppose I am at the prime of my life.

It's obviously best not to think about our body's age. I'm 64 and yes, things hurt a lot, but I do what I can.
