I'm 39, so I HOPE that the wear and tear on my body is not too bad yet. LOL!
I'll tell you what though, some days I feel like i'm 90 with all this pain. Especially in the mornings.
I have never been one to "beat up" my body. I stayed away from drugs and alcohol, especially the alcohol because my father is an alcoholic and I didn't want to be like him. I do however have the occasional glass or two of wine.
I was also very active when I was younger, I was on the speed skate team at the skating rink, I also used to hike with a friend of mine, and I would always go out dancing with friends. I LOVE to dance! LOL
Now it seems like I can barely get out of bed in the mornings, and when I try to get up and go to the bathroom, the bottoms of my feet hurt so bad, along with my lower back, and of course everything else.
My mother and sister both have fibro, and I thought maybe I was in the clear, but I guess I was wrong. Both of them, and my brother all have Hypothyroid issues and have to take synthroid every day. I have been tested several times for that and always came up fine, so..... I thought maybe the fibro would skip me too. LOL! Wishful thinking huh?
I have to remember too, that I was in 2 car accidents, where I was hit from behind both times, and had some neck issues years ago.
Sorry for rambling, I get sidetracked sometimes. LOL!
Someday i'm gonna have a nervous breakdown - I've worked for it, I've earned it, and no one is going to deprive me of it!
