Does life begin at 40?

    I was horrified at turning 40, but that was 20 years ago. I am not thrilled about being 60 either, but what can you do about it? As time goes on, you realize you are still you inside, but the outside looks older.

    In my experience, life gets better and better as you age. Your children grow up and move on, you have new freedoms, and you are so much smarter than when you were 20 or 30. Don't worry about it.

    If I could get my neck fixed, I would be happier about my's saggy (extra skin) like my Dad's and grandma's.

    the 40s are really great years - but my father says -all years are great years in their own way

    lower sex drive for men anyway

    Not according to my husband, who is 41 soon to be 42. He's been commenting how good the sex has been over the last year, it has gotten better and is better than when we were in our 30's.

    Yeah. When I was in my twenties I couldn't afford to do a lot of things I wanted to do. Now I'm in my forties and I can afford it - my health just won't tolerate it. W

    My 40's have been great so far. Actually things have been getting significantly better since 2000. I seem to learn more life lessons and they 'stick' so I have fewer and fewer problems (real or imagined). My attitude toward life is also much better and especially in the last 2-3 years I don't worry as much. Aint't life grand.

    I think ezra is still under bOrg control. I finally left my ex husband at 40. For me a whole new life is beginning. Plus, women peak sexually in their 40's!!! Whoooooooot!
