I'm 31 feel about 73 today.

Miles to go before I sleep.

Know your ACE (adverse childhood experiences) score?
Sometimes, SA is a symptom of significant developmental, attachment or interpersonal trauma (emotional neglect counts). If you're still stuck after you've tried SA treatments such as CBT and exposure, research C-PTSD and see if it resonates. Here's an awesome resource. Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving

Same here. The sense of hope I once had in my 20s is gone. Feeling like this is just how life is going to be until I'm dead.

Lol, yes. My back's been hurting a bit lately. And my right knee hurts when I come back up from squatting down. I don't remember ever hurting my knee.

I feel it a little in my body with having to "be smart" about some physical activities I do, but not mentally. I don't know where on the age charts I am mentally. It doesn't seem to make a difference for the people who don't care, so I'm trying to figure out how to not feel self-conscious about being older than I actually am.

I know the feeling. For me it changes; sometimes I feel like I'm at the end of my life because it feels as though I've tried everything and nothing seems to work.. lately some of the heaviness has started dropping away and some of my natural qualities have started shining through again. So now am starting feeling like I did when I was 27.

I get tired at 7:30 p.m. every night. How old does that make me? 81?

Feel 35-40 today! Nice. Hopefully this lasts more than a day.

Physically it's often exaggerated. Once one reaches 60, 80 etc. instead of being 30, and the bones and joints are really wasted, and the nerves are often pinched or in pain, and lot of dead dying skin,balding or bald head, you'll probably really wish you were still a younger 30 or even 40.

I'm 35 and I feel like I'm 24 or so. Still feel like a kid who goes to school. I can't mingle among them anymore though I'm balding!

Personally I'd love to be 60. I'd be happy to know that my life is over, now people expect so much from you, I can't carry that weight. Once your 60 + nobody expects anything.

I'm 20 and feel way more immature in my mind. And in my body ... .well, I feel 20.

“It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end… because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing… this shadow. Even darkness must pass.” – Samwise Gamgee

I'm the other way around as well. Feel like I'm in my early 20s even though I'm in my mid 30s.

I look quite young so most people assume I am in my 20s (if not younger). My lack of social maturity and self-confidence contributes to this as well. When people treat you a certain way you start to internalize it after a while.

Almost 31 and I feel like a bratty 17 year old. Then I get up off the couch and my joints pop and my hips sometimes are pretty sore, so that’s my reality check.
