Can you be more specific? Do you feel it from the doctors? Your friends? Family?
I was diagnosed at age 49. Now I am 53 and going through it again. The first time when I was seeing a PS, he made the comment I was 49 so making me look whole and pretty wasn't as important to me. I found a new PS super fast and was thrilled I did.
Maybe try to evaluate why you are feeling the younger women get better treatment. The younger women I know who have it are also dealing with small children and need lots of extra help and assistance. For me, my youngest is 17 and is very self sufficient. She can also drive me around if I need it. So to an outsider, I may not be getting much attention or help but I am really doing fine since my responsibilities are far different now than say 10 years ago.
