Tomorrow I am turning 40. It’s not the big deal that it’s made out to be. At least not for me. It’s not even the big deal I thought it would be when I turned 39. I just can’t buy into the age thing. I am so tired of hearing about how everything is just part of “getting old” when 90% (or more) of the things that I have problems with now (joint pain, insomnia, fatigue) are the same things I started having problems with as a teenager or younger!...more
