    My wife is always telling me that I should stop complaining and moping, that I'm "only" 50. I tell her that there's a young 50 and an old 50. I'm an ancient 50.

    I think happiness keeps you young. But to those like me, starved for love and affection, life can sometimes be a burden. I've had a lot of pain and trouble into 50 years, enough for two lifetimes. Sometimes 50 feels like enough.

    What do you say, fellow 40-and-overs?

    I'm guessing she is under 50. It's not the age, it's the miles.

    I'm way over forty. I feel pretty good. The only thing is, I'm senile. What were we talking about again?

    Do you have a debilitating disease? If not, lighten up, you're alive and enjoying the Shed.

    I'm 35 but I feel like I'm 50 years old. I've worked shift work for the past 12 years straight and it's starting to hurt.

    Yes - I feel old. But I jerk off to feel better about it.

    Im 45 and there are days I feel 22 and days I feel old, depends on my sleep, diet and stress level, all of which means Im getting old, but can still fight it.

    Sounds like you aren't adding to your wife's enjoyment of life.

    Why don't you lighten her burden and choose to be pleasant company?

    You just might find that if you aren't always "moping and complaining" that you don't feel so miserable

    Listen to what you are saying, you are starved for love and affection...you are complaining about being so hungry for this, that it has hurt you, as this pain is one from a lifetime of suffering making you feel ancient, like you are dying. This must be awful for you. She may well be hearing that she is responsible for your burdens, your pains and complaints, especially if your complaint to her is basically you feel unloved and starving for attention. Certainly, a mighty weight for any human being to carry for another. Age is irrelevant here. What is ultimately relevant here is your relationship, not necessarily with your wife, but yourself. How can you feed yourself without waiting for others to feed you, without your struggling for them to give you what you can give yourself? --- Or maybe you just want her to bang you more?

    OP...it sounds like you may have depression? Maybe some marriage counseling?

    I'm 41..I work a pretty rough job, physically. ..and for the most part I still feel like I'm 25, albeit with a few more naps thrown in...lol

    My back was really bothering me for awhile, but then I got a new mattress and no problems.

    Oh, when I look in the mirror, though, I don't see a 25 year old...ugh

    To all the ladies of the shed: I am (on most days) single and (on all days) an unbelievably young 46. Yup. You heard right. If you look at me in just the right light when we're on our super-dooper date at Taco Bell, you'd swear a 1978 Bjorn Borg was sitting right across from you with a chiseled Nordic chin and just enough stubble to be sexy, and not off putting.

    Now, to OP. Serious question, serious answer: I quite honestly am still mentally about 19 and I got religious about staying fit about 10 years ago; so I'm chugging along just fine. Not recommending this for anyone else, but getting a divorce helped. I can no longer blame anyone else for my issues, and i now get along better with my ex wife than I did in years past and it forces me to use my time with my kid proactively. So aside from the usual misery of a-holes at work that make me want to do a launch out the window out on to Market Street, life is good.

    I'm 45 and feel both young and very grown up. It's a nice mix

    one of the good things about being old, is that I don't have to work again. unlike young folks who will be working for 30 or 40 years. working to fund my early SSAN payments. which will all be wasted on stuff and nonsense. so get to work boy, i've got games to buy. :)
