Look 25 But Am Over 40
I was born in 1968 but always looked like a kid. In the late 90's it was believed I have some sort of hormone deficiency as well as genetics. My brother, just under a full year younger than me, also looks far younger than he is.
In addition I have poor eye/hand coordination and was underdeveloped and experienced puberty at 15. When I was in high school I felt so wierd changing for gym and having no hair on my legs or anywhere else but my head. When I graduated many still said I looked like a 13 year old. In addition, I was a geek with coke bottle glasses. I also was not strong for my size at 5 foot 10. Most kids smaller and younger were much stronger. I also was a bedwetter as well and still wore disposables at night.
I went to college and that was mostly a nice experience. I still looked more like a high school freshman than a college freshman. AT that point I was experiencing growing pains. Most classmates however were cool to me and I found a good amount of friends that accepted me for who I was. EVen the bedwetting and diapers were no big deal.
Still, in college I matured physically very little but at least began growing hair on my legs as well as my face and grew to about 5 foot 11. When I graduated college at 4 years, I still looked like a 16 year old in high school. When buying ordering a drink I was always carded.
After graduation, I landed a job in a place that employed lots of teens. Many would wonder why I was not seen in school. I was asked on many occasions what high school I was going to. It was a shock when I told them I graduated college and was 24 or 25 years old. In 1999, I turned 30 and still looked like a teenage boy. I loved the attention when renting a car or checking into a motel, showing ID and they tell me "WOW You look so young" or "Your that old?".
Finally in the 2000's I began to gain weight and stopped loking like a scrawny kid. I also began weight lifting to acquire strength and began strengthing my bladder muscles by holding 30 inutes after the need to go hit unless I was about to go on a long car trip. The bedwetting finally subsided by 2002, I was benching 300 by 2003, and was up to 190 from 150 by then. I finally began to get 3 folds on my forehead. I did cheat by taking steroids beginning in 1999 and stopped by 2004. This seemed to help me age a bit.
Today, my hair is still thick, I now have hair on my chest, I am nuw rather muscelor and slightly bulky. But my face is still quite smooth. But I still have bad coordination and am still rather clumsy and have glasses as well. At least I no longer wet the bed. At a recent college reunion I was among the 5 in my graduating class that still looks similar to the way I looked at graduation. All I heard all weekend was how good I looked. Most thought I looked 25 to 30. Still people marvle that I still manage to look so young.
HEY I LOVE IT!!! But now my clock is ticking and I know I will begin to look old in the next few years. I say enjoy the youth when I still can
