I am wondering since th rest of you are older than I am...

Do you feel the same as you did when young as far as nerves feeling clothes, fabric, sensations like touch? I know that maybe your tolerance for over eating has gone down some, and maybe you don't feel like doing as big of energy draining activities, but does your body feel similar?

I am really wondering if mine is going to feel good again. I have vivid memories of just enjoying the way my bed felt, the sheets mostly, when I was younger. I was kind of sensitive to abbrasive things but I relaxed more often. Also sleep felt good, like I'd be truly tired feeling. Now I just kind of go to bed, but I basically can't fall asleep at other times like car rides and stuff as I did as a child. I find myself missing feeling super tired trying to keep my eyes open. Now I can stay awake for as long as I want.

Are these strange things to miss? I use to think going to bed was nice because everything would be better in the morning if the night wasn't great. Well I guess now it's just funny because I am going to pee a bunch during the night, but I don't have much of a rested feel. When I was younger and woke up I would lay there but not fall asleep, it was quiet nice actually to just enjoy being in bed. Now I fall back asleep and feel closer to hung over, or I get up but I am tired (not groggy). My memories right now seem so vivid about what these things use to be like.

Maybe it's all downhill? I find myself becoming more logical the older I get. It's sorta awful because I revert to logic when I don't feel right. Nothing feels more natural or calm then when I am more in emotional states, which actually happened last night. It made me think about how tired I am of all the logical thinking, that's just way to much brain activity all the time; about stuff I don't care too much about but seem important for money or whatever. Is that part of getting old? I don't like it.

Don't confuse maturity with getting old.

You sound like you could benefit from something like gingko biloba or ashwagandha. They truly do promote deeper sleep, perhaps because they lower cortisol levels which promotes a more restful feeling in the morning.

It also sounds like you should try to engage in more physical exercise daily, as long as it's not too close to bedtime as that would encourage wakefulness.

You shouldn't think of yourself going downhill from now on. You have a tremendous gift of knowing how to eat right for your type, unlike most people you know outside of these forums. This is the place to come when your health needs some "tweaking". "Seek and ye shall find".

I remember when I turned 35 years old and proudly announced to all who would listen that I was "NOW MIDDLE AGED".  

Why on earth would I do that?  Because I felt that I no longer had to work so hard every minute to prove myself as an adult, rational, intelligent, capable, etc. person and could finally relax and be whatever I was.

Result:  My life didn't change radically, but my attitude did and it made things much more pleasant for me.

Now I am old.  Seriously old.  Yes, my body feels quite different from when I was young, but the BTD has returned me to health and my mind still works pretty darned well most of the time.  

It's all good if you look at the bright side.  (And if you stay on the diet....)


6 years on ER BTD, went from sick and dying to healthier And 30 pounds slimmer.  

Dec 2013: Started Swami Xpress - I'm 48% Explorer with hybridized Explorer/BTD list. A new adventure for this old lady!  -- LOST 5 more pounds on SWAMI!

Hmmm... DoS, what begins with physiology ends with psychology, so I'll respond to both.

It sounds like your vital energies are blocked. Try some acupuncture, message therapy, etc.

It also sounds like your emotions are blocked. Try some laughter, star gazing, etc.

I think it's absolutely crucial that Warriors learn how to shut off the internal "chatter". It is entirely doable and there are various ways to do it. We can become cynical otherwise, due to constant evaluating and judging.

While I've noticed that some things diminish with age, nothing to the extent that you've described. Do what is necessary to restore your physical vitality through supplementation and such, but know that nothing compares to the well-being that comes with taking a pumice stone to emotional callouses.

I enjoy a massage. Unfortunately I've become familiar with how acupuncture doesn't appear to actually do anything. Scientists have stopped studying it because of lack in significance.

My internal chatter is naturally low if my body is working half right. It actually appears to be doing a few things right now. It's not quickly happening. The majority of it was held back by a few deficiencies that prevented any progress till now. But the things Dr. D'Adamo wanted me to do over a year ago, and I've done a lot since, are just starting to work now that I've caught up with a few deficiencies.

Unfortunately I'd forgotten about some of the heartaches that come with less brain chatter, less logic, and back to the INFJ, or feeling, that I am.

Body functions still seem semi mixed bag.

yiikes... so many pre-judgements or better said *projections... is that possible that you'd undergo an error in typing your MBTI  and your true psyche basics might be merly : or istp/j /ESTP/J... when seen by the enneagram.... this might in both sides even be the so called:desintegrative way:

need further infos...here you might get them  ..: www.the enneagraminstitue.org

btw... this form of typings now is even adjusted to psychatric statements and instruments... so far we can't deny anymore the relevance of those studies nor about that accurate system.......

I never quite understood why it had fallen out of favor in the first place. How could it be that drugs and a drive to "normalize" the population to a homogenous standard became the accepted approach to therapy?

Really boggles the mind.
