My "little pal" was near 108 when she passed. You have a long way to go.

Here's the deal:

(1) You are a little kid.
(2) You blink
(3) You're an old man

Live and love life with wide eyes and a sense of wonder. Keep that body moving, don't sit in front of the computer and TV all the time. Move and keep the body limber. Be who you are with honesty. Be kind to yourself and others. Challenge yourself and try new things, even if it is small because anything accomplished is rewarding. Keep your mind open to possibilities. Take failures as learning lessons and build on it. Look at both sides, bad and good, and try to begin and end the day with a positive. Do something meaningful for yourself and others. Don't bury yourself in a pre-made coffin lined with regrets, negativity, sourness, pessismism and narrowness, because it makes other people not want to be around you all the time and it makes you miserable. Don't listen to the depression. Take the help and support. When better or well, give back and appreciate yourself and others who cared, and say so.

One thing would be to stop foretelling your own future. It's a toss up right now what is going to happen to you when you are 50. LLAP.

Forgot to add, get a decent amount of sleep for your age group and gender. Refresh yourself.

Look I am 74 and have had depression for 30 years.  You just have to look after yourself as best you can.  You can read a lot of books and they will all say the same.

Keep active, eat sensibly, don't smoke, don't drink alcohol to excess, get enough sleep.  Keep your mind and body active.  Why are you worrying about aging at 32?  

I don't like the ageing process, but you cannot stop it.  You can slow it down by doing the sensible things I mention.  Comfortable about getting old you ask?  Not really.  But hey you have one life, and even depression, which has been hell, does not stop me living mine as best I can.  I have arthritis, and I am slowing down physically, but although we can slow things, we have to age.  That is life.  Don't fret about it now.  Live the life you have now, and don't worry about the future.  Defeat ageing deep in your heart.  Well that is a question.  

Depression is just here to challenge us.  I have battled it and will never stop fighting.  

Stop worrying, you are young.  Take life now and live it to the full, as best you can.  Old age will come soon enough.

Getting old *****, especially when you have anxiety or depression.  No way around it.  Parts of your body you didn't even know you have start to hurt.  But there's a famous quote that I'm going to botch, the only thing worse than getting old is the alternative.

Well when you reach my age you will be like me, old.  I was 32 once you know!!!   You cannot stop the aging process.  We would all like to feel as we did when we were younger, of course.  No depression, no arthritis, no wrinkles.  But hey, as I said that is life.  Don't insult us older people please.  Yes I do think it sounds rude.  

Do you think there is no purpose in living once we get older?  Should we all be put down at 50????  Please be sensible and accept that we all age.  I would rather be old than dead!!!!
