    I turned 30 yesterday. Just a day like any other. So, having reached the top of the hill, how fast will I roll down the other side?

    Thanks. :wink:

    I suppose I have been quoting my age as thirty for the past year already, so it is not so bad.

    The reason for posting this in biology though, is that I am interested in exactly how my body will go downhill from now on. I know I can Google all of it, but I would like some personal experiences as well. For instance, I know I can't stay up as late as always, but why?

    Don't worry about it. Just enjoy the ride. I've been over here for ages and it's not so bad.

    I am due to hit the big six - oh (or oh oh oh!) in 2 months. Hitting 30 was nothing. Hitting 40 was nothing. After 50, I noticed a few minor body deteriorations, and they are accelerating. This year I got diagnosed with minor gout (which is NOT a rich persons disease), and I can feel my knees getting sore. I am someone who eats healthily - does not smoke - and exercises regularly. I am of better than average health for my age. However, age catches up.
