Does anyone get depressed wondering what will my body be like years from now? I am 45 and feel like I have an 80 year old body.

      Just gotta deal with it tbh. I'm 19 with the back of a 70 year old veteran (maybe worse, maybe better ┐( ∵ )┌); but I know in the future I might be paralyzed, so I gotta make the most with the time I've got now a prepare myself for any possible outcome in the future :) after all, I could be paralyzed now, so I'm blessed to have what I do atm. GLORY TO GOD ☦️

      Ugh!! Everyday…my goal is to keep moving though. Even if it is something “unimportant” or tiresome.

      I take things one day at a time. My body doesn't allow for pre planning because every hour could change how I feel. My husband always says, "No matter what, we always get through things" and it makes me feel a bit better. I hate being at the mercy of my body but my body is a part of me that I can't separate so I soldier on

      I think about this everyday. While I hear the phrase “young and pain free” from older people. I tend to think of myself as their age as I relate to them the most rather than people my age. I’m 24 but I’ve been physically feeling like I’m in my mid sixties. I know and hang around much older crowds, and visit doctors on a regular. I’ve been like this for as long as I can remember. Adapting to every new symptom and pain tolerance. It’s quite depressing when you mind starts to wonder the “What if’s” or the future because I’m always thinking of just surviving the day.

      So sorry to you both. What do you both do to feel better about it?

      Yes. What makes things worse is I went through my teenage years thinking I wouldn't make it past 18. Then when I did I was like "what now?" Started going to school and got super sick. Had goals and now they're all shot down, I have no idea what my future holds
