Join the club. I'm 48 too and I was talking about this to someone at work this week (only I think I said I still felt 19). I don't think it will change. Some of the older (60's to 80's) patients we get say they still feel about 20 too.

1. I'm really scared about the future, especially my job (short term) and my inevitable physical and mental decline.

2. My teeth hurt, but I'm scared of the dentist.

3. I carry a torch for a woman who I haven't seen in 26 years, and only ever kissed a couple of times. I still adore her.

4. I don't drink enough. I can't because I'm 'responsible'.

5. I believe that most of the people who I know only want to know me for what I can do for them, not because they like me.

6. I'd like to be around when the world ends, or some similar apocalyptic, civilisation crushing event happens.

7. The best part of the week is when I get home from work on Saturdays and eat a couple of sausage rolls, and have a cup of coffee.

8. I wish I could afford the series UFO on box set.

9. I wake up sometimes convinced I'm having a heart attack.

10. The best bit about me is my blue, blue eyes, I'm told.

1 I'm shorter than the fish but Grollope doesn't realise
2 I have at least a dozen filed CDs still in the wraps
3 I've had more good experiences in the 15 months since i turned 30 than in all my post-uni 20s
4 I've told people here who i haven't met things that my closest family don't know about me
5 I spend too much on clothes and not enough on travel
6 I never realised how much loving your job could do to your life
7 I'd rather know a little about loads of things than know much about anything. To the point where people think i'm being disingenuous when i say i'm not that into certain things.
8 I'm only ever sarcastic with people i like and SBA
9 I enjoying flirting with unobtainable people and fretting over obtainable ones.
10 My job makes me feel really old and really young a dozen times every day

Yup, that lack of a V8 would fuck anyone up. Notice how many start with "I", that tells you all you need to know. Sigh.
