    Early 30s.

    + finally get taken seriously by older people but it is even easier to pull people in their early 20s.
    + vast majority of people I grew up with are leading stable, happy lives after struggling in their 20s.

    - all the men around me are going bald.
    - starting to understand what back and knee pain means.

    49 + I've experienced enough of life, both good and bad to try and pass that knowledge on to my soon to be 20 year old son.
    - Having to get up in the middle of the night, every single night to pee. It leaves me so tired every day. Stiff knees and back if I either sit down for too long or stand in one position for too long. Picking up more and more mannerisms my mum used to have; when they used to be so irritating to me when I was young.
