    My Body Is Betraying Me...again

    I am 30 years old, everyone says I should still be in my prime.  Yet, I can barely walk if I sit on the floor.  My knees and ankles throb.  My hips go out when they feel like it.  I have high cholesterol, a clotting disorder and EDS.  I am tired, depressed and don't know...

    Aging

     I hate getting old. Physically, you lose tone and you get wrinkles and stuff like that.  Mentally, your fluid intelligence declines.  For life in general, you get more responsibilities and worries unlike childhood which is very carefree.

    Painful Old Bones.

    I think the worse part is joint pain and gradual loss of strength.I have to ask for help or not get something done.I've been a capable woman and now I feel I'm slipping.It can feel depressing but we have to cope.
