I am new here, I am 62 years old, but I don't feel that old mentally or physically, emotionally I appreciate my age. I believe that age is not important, the stage is what is important. Sometimes we stay at one stage for a long time, sometimes we miss a year or two.

I also feel no connection to my age.. The number 22 means nothing to me. I can feel 9 or 90 on the same day. Years are pretty irrelevant to me, somehow my life's broken down differently.

queenie: I just read your post about lupus. I work for in rheumatology and have done several lupus clinical trials. I can't believe that your co-worker reacted that way! Geez! It's not something that you can "catch" from someone. How stupid! ranting2.gif That really makes me mad. I am going to be doing a peds lupus trial soon (if it ever gets started). Anyway, just wanted to let you know I was thinking about you!

Take care,

I guess everyone turns older each year...prolly just a number to some but it does mark surviving another year for some others too. I thought I'd never see me turning a year older this year but I did....just turned 34 a little over a week ago.

Hi There

I'm 28 yrs old. Although I have to agree with some of the other board members, some days I feel like I'm 5 yrs old and other days like 50yrs old but mostly its even keel at almost 30, yikes! I can feel the ageing process coming on strong but the plus side is at 30 and onwards one knows themselves pretty well and thus are more sure of who they are, what they want,etc.This is only my opinion of course.But from that perspective 30 is looking pretty good now lol.

Bye for now
