@NurseMandie:  My PMS symptoms have definitely gotten progressively worse as I’ve gotten older (33 now).  I never used to get cramps or headaches, but they’re the norm for me now (which sucks).

Ahh, I am sooo glad I’m not alone in this! When I hit 30, I started getting sore all the time, horrible headaches, always tired. I have tried to cut down on drinking and going out, I eat way healthier, I try to get 8-9 hours of sleep a night.

I also have horrible PMS and ovulation pain, and my periods are like 9 days instead of 3-4.

I’ll let you know for sure in two weeks when I turn 30.  But yes, I have noticed a lot more aches and pains in my joints in the last few months.  I have also noticed that my skin is duller but less prone to acne (yay!) and my hair is not as thick as it used to be.  But as far as fitness goes, I am definitely more fit now than when I was in my 20s because I work harder to keep in shape now.

For me, it was 35… I feel like I’m falling apart.  Ugh!

@hassle_J:  35 for me too.  I felt my best ever between 29-33.  34 was kind of transitional.  And the partybus came to a schreeching halt at about 35 and a half!

When I turned 30 (January) I cried for 2 weeks straight. I don’t wanna get old! Not fair to have pimples AND wrinkles and grey hair…..there is just something wrong with that…lol I have broken out more this year than in the past too. I look at some of my old clssmates from highschool and think “wow, they have aged” then I realise I have too….boo!!

I found a couple of gray hairs last year (at 29) and I was like, “NOPE,” and pulled them both out by the roots.  They haven’t come back since, so I have my fiingers crossed that they were just due to stress from grad school and not permanent additions to my coif.  As for acne, I had it bad when I was a teen, and it disappeared when I started the pill.  When I went off the pill when I was 27, it came back with a vengeance. I have it more under control now, but it tends to flare up with the change of seasons.  I live in Ohio, and beween fall and winter it goes form being very humid to very dry, and it’s awful around that time for some reason.  The only thing that really takes care of it when I have an outbreak is benzoyl peroxide, but I hate using it because it bleaches out my clothes, towels and bedsheets!

I’ve had a huge decline in health since my late 20’s (I live with disabiling pain now days). So, yes. But if it weren’t for that, I think I would feel mostly okay, other than the wrinkles appearing and the grey hairs and the metabolism slowing. 

With that said, I have come to learn A LOT about health. I know I can’t completely change the process of aging, but I really think a lot of problems people have are due to poor diet, too many processed foods, not stretching enough, not getting massages, poor stress management, and lack of physical activity (and by that, I mean more natural things, like walking, hiking, sports that offer variety and don’t restrict natural movement or keep muscles restricted in repetitive positions).

@NurseMandie:  I actually feel great, but apparently have some medical issues that should be making me feel like crap…so I don’t know if I’m just clueless or lucky…either way, 30 is a trip!

I have been very fortunate that I feel BETTER in my 30’s than I ever did in my 20’s. I’m in the best shape of my life and I’ve become super insane about my nutrition so I think that has really helped.

…But, Lord help me stay up past 8:30pm. I used to be a night owl but now I shut DOWN around 8 no matter how hard I fight it. Oh yeah, and forget about drinking. One glass of wine and it’s hangover city for this chick.

It was 27 for me. 2013 has been a banner year… in early January I got tested for glaucoma, then I was diagnosed with skin cancer, I get hangovers now, UTI’s, and long ass heavy periods. To top off the year, I’ve got shingles. FML. Thank goodness we got married this year. Keeps things a tad more positive!
