I'm not a Gen-X but a boomer who stumbled across this thread. I think of myself as healthy and I do a lot of the right things to be healthy. But I have a neurological condition that causes me intense pain episodically. I've had two shoulder surgeries in ten months that contribute to the aggravation of these headaches. And the stress of my job has finally gotten to me and I am on a forced 3 month leave from my work.
I am 54 years old, 6', 177 pounds, and I'm very fit. I climb and ski 12 months of the year and run 4-5 days a week when I am feeling good. I don't smoke and I drink only moderately (though I have elevated liver enzymes that no doctor has been able to explain). I have an abnormal EKG as the result of a traumatic injury to my heart in an extreme skiing fall 25 years ago, but it doesn't prevent me from any activity and I can still climb big mountains to ski them and run ultramarathons at high altitude.
I am depressed, for a number of reasons and this is my overarching health concern because all the other health benefits I get from being active, eating well, and exercising can be undermined by my depression.
