Weak muscles and bones

0

I have recently become very aware of my bodily functions. Not so much bodily functions, but more so my muscles and bones. It is a strange feeling when you realize that your body is not indestructible and that your muscles and bones become weaker with wear over time. I have especially noticed it in my wrists, ankles, feet, and back. The scary thing is, that once your body starts to weaken there is no going back. Certainly you can exercise or have surgeries to restore certain ailments, but your original strength is gone. When I am aware and conscious of parts of my body that hurt or feel weak, I get a very strange tingling feeling and my body almost feels light, like it’s barely there and I can hardly imagine how it manages to do the things that it can and move around as it does. It’s very bizarre and I don’t quite like it.
