The devil is in the details with these types of models. So
if you choose not to give us the details, then we obviously
cannot give you much more than we have already given you.

Assuming that x (you should think carefully whether you 
realy want to use that symbol for bounds, as it will often
be confused with some explanatory variable) is measured in 
years then you'll probably have only 1's in your data, and
you won't be able to estimate any model.
