Oh- you just wait. But hey- the good news is- you get more and more used to the pain.
Oh yes. You're entering the stage where it's always something, and it's never good.
Since you are younger than my children, I should refrain from answering this in the way that a Mom would. But... I bet you can guess what a mom would say....
yes. wait til you get into your 60s! model your life after auntie glad!
I'll die young AM
You can't die young, you are already old. :D
That's rubbish John, you've still got too many blogs to writ, and they might keep making lots more series of Walking Dead. Now you can't miss those - can you?
oops ......too many blogs to write..
No John, you won't... you'll be here until your 80's, at least.
From 17 years down the road from you, I offer these pearls of wisdom from Warren Zevon:So I'm going to hurl myself against the wall'Cause I'd rather feel bad than not feel anything at allFrom "Ain't That Pretty at All"
Sadly true.The level varies though. As does the source.

My husband used to say something similar to what 'Should Fish More' posted.He would be very stiff and sore in the morning and he would say (an old quote)After a certain age, if you don't wake up aching in every joint, you are probably dead.
It started for me soon after I turned 50, which is nearly 10 years ago now. So I guess my answer is "yes". And it's not just the pain. Things start breaking down, falling apart, falling out, and going snap-crackle-pop ...
. . . . . oh but the good days are fabulous and one becomes so grateful for almost pain-free ones. I have almost 20 years on you John and have experienced several types of pain. Won't go into details, but certainly I'm thankful I didn't die young and still hope for many more good years. I still have places to go and people to see - perhaps even your village some day, lol!Mary -P.S. I do have friends in Prestatyn so you never know, may pay you a visit next time I cross the pond!
Yep, John ... It's called life! I gave my mum a birthday card she hung in the kitchen "First of all you start to stoop, getting old is pigeon poop"Get used to it! Celebrate it!
Yeah, I'm feelin' it.
If I woke up and nothing hurt I'd be over-the-moon grateful and deliriously happy about it.
Brace yourself, it gets worse.
I tell myself that pain is good. It lets you know your alive.
Just pop a painkiller and get on with it ! Nothing like having busy days to take your mind off the aches and pains.
They're growing pains John, you're still a spring chicken! Greetings Maria xx
its the sheer niggly bleedin nature of the aches and pains , 40 odd years ago they told me my painful leg aches were growing pains now they tell me its my age again, naybe ive started growing again?
I used to wake up every morning ever so stiff. But some years ago all that became part of the past.
Pain is inevitable. The upside is: you get better at figuring out how to deal with it.
Oh dear, there must be something wrong with me ! I am a lot older than you John, but do not wake to pain in the mornings. It seems I am the odd one out here!. ( I do count myself lucky ! )
Perhaps you need a new bed? Or new pillows?(Or am I just a victim of advertising?)
No - no pain....
Botox kills all pain ive heard
I like to think I'm more like that ageless queen in She!!
Sorry. You're too young to write off your morning aches and pains to age. I'm sure it's all the wild partying you do in Trelawnyd.
At thirty years older than you it certainly applies to me John - but I remember being fit and ready to go at your age. Or maybe my memory plays tricks with me.
But I guess now is the age when you get to regale friends and family with your aches and pains (and count out your pills into your pill box each morning). But seriously, I'm 57 and can't say much has changed really that a bit of exercise/yoga won't cure, except the eyesight. (That could be what helps me ignore my "fuller figure" and why when I get in the lift I see my mom looking back at me in the mirror). But aches and pains? Not really.
I'll be 50 this year (sooo much younger than you!), but I'm wondering the same thing. Should it hurt this much, already??? -Jenn
48 currently and I ache every single day. Spondylolisthesis is the bane of my existence. Yoga helps for the most part.
Yes, John, aging hurts. Never mind, a strong cup of coffee or well-sugared tea will set you right this morning. Lots to do, now do it! My grannie hobbled briskly through her final years. My grand-dad remarked: "Like a cow running. It's not pretty but she gets there." (Amazingly, he was allowed to live into his 90s.)
The pain lets you know that you're alive...
Pilates or yoga perhaps? A friend teaches Pilates and at 64 feels like a 20 year old ( and her underarms don't sag which is just wrong.) Me, I dream of running like I did as a child. Joints won't let me. I watched WD last night and it was shocking. Hope the rest of this series of shows is as action packed.
53? You tot, you!
The best surprise is waking up above ground in order read your blog.
