Which is very sad... because it's like people write off half of their lives. The important part, the part where you know what's going on and what to expect.
Age is very unimportant in my eyes. Old people will always retain some youth and many young people have a certain wisdom that only comes with age. As far as I'm concerned, age is simple a number we attach to ourselves that really has no meaning.

My mom is the same way and she is only 51. I think my mom is absoultely beautiful....but she just doesn't believe it.! I don't understand...maybe because I'm ignornat to it because I don't see the point in the worry, but I don't see the big deal in being 30, 40, 50, 100. My sister is 30 and her and I are inseparable. I have more older friends then friends my age. I just want to enjoy life no matter what age I am. I don't think people should worry about what others think....I think it is all in how your attitude is about yourself. I think if somebody is treating you poorly...if you thought it was b/c of your age...I'd tell them where to stick it! But I'm pretty awnry person.!
I just think we should appreciate each other based on who we are as people, not anything more. Please don't think that all "young people" see or treat what some may consider as "older people" in a negative way because that's just not true. I guess I'm just one of those people that think age is just a number, not anything more. I don't think wisdom comes with age, I think it comes from experience. But life could always prove me wrong.

Tracy that happened to me too...two years ago I had to ask my mother which age I was because I couldn't remember if it was 24 or 25.....man that was so weird and it made me sad too because it's when it hit me how I developed a serious problems with dates and times after my rape. I often get confused and I think it is strictly related to my story....somehow I must have felt (and still do) that I have lost a year...
Btw 'm turning 27 sooooon and it makes me so freaking depressed......
