  • Depends on how ragged my 6 yo has run me lol ...... generally though, no I don't feel 41.
    dull - no 40 something isn't old and that is not what the OP suggested. The OP is asking if us over 40's FEEL old which is something completely different.

  • 44 here. Depends on my day. I have 5 kids. Although my older kids are 24,19, and 16 my youngest are 4 and 5 and some days I really feel my age, but they help keep me young.

  • I am 46, and while I don't always feel old, I have Fibromyalgia, and it makes me feel like a 46 year old in a 96 year old body! But, I have 2 incredible granddaughters, 4 and 2, who keep me going, and keep me young.

  • 49, kids are 19, 21 & 28, and I feel young energetic and like I have a lot more to do. In fact, now that my kids are suddenly pretty much grown, and almost all out of the house, I'm able to do all of the things I've put on hold while raising my kids. Life is good, and I'm thankful for every day I have.
