I remember being 34 and noticing a difference from when I was in my 20's. I mentioned it to my mother and grandmother and they were quite amused. I understood their amusement, as I was still pretty young - but I was serious.


You're young and you can take this as an opportunity and do what you can to take care of yourself and your health. As my doctor has said, we can't avoid the things we're genetically predisposed to, but we can delay the onset. We're all different in when and what we develop health issues. The best we can do is not to treat our bodies as if they're indestructible. If you take care of yourself now, you have a better chance at a healthier future.


As for "feeling my age", I guess the best way to put it is that it's been a progressive experience. I have "felt my age" throughout my life. Sometimes issues resolve themselves and sometimes they become something you live with. But like anything else, the further away you get from something - in this case, my 20's, for example - the more distant and probably the less accurate my memory is. I daresay if we had a day of being in our 20's, we'd really feel our age when we returned to our present bodies. Maybe that's for the better. The bottom line is to enjoy what you have while you have it!!
