Looking extremely young

I had no idea where to put this thread.... So please forgive me if not in the right place.

I am really struggling lately with how young I look! I have always looked young but it seems the older I get the younger people think I am and the more it bothers me! When I was in my early 20s it wasn't as bad but now I'm turning 30 and I'm sick of people commenting.
I refuse to buy anything in a supermarket etc that is age restricted because I'm so embarrassed to be asked for ID.
Last time I went out (2 years ago) with the mummies from school I got asked for id in every single pub, I shrugged it off at the time to try and enjoy my night but I've never been out since! I hate it!
My hubby is a few years older than me and people sometimes look at us weird as if he's some sort of cradle snatcher!
The final straw came when we were in Florida in a few weeks ago. I took 2 of the children on a ride and the lady running the ride asked me how old I was (you have to be 14 to take under 7s on a ride). I sat and held back tears for the whole ride I was so mortified!
I don't really know what I want from this thread but to ask if anyone has experienced the same? Am u over reacting? I don't know really. It's just really causing me stress and massive anxiety! I'm starting a new job next week and I'm absolutely dreading it!

Hi in the same boat here. I understand your frustration. I get asked constantly if I want a kids meal or half fayre on the bus. Once years ago they wouldn't even serve my dh unless I left the bar and I was 19. I am starting to laugh at it but am in my late 30's now and sick of looking like I'm sixteen. I just want to feel like a proper woman!!

I understand op. I'm 29 and I get id'ed always. I worry that as I age more I'll just look like a young person with wrinkles.
