Everyone says it's a blessing, and I'm not really upset by it or anything, but I really don't look my age. I got married when I was almost 23 (I'm almost 25 now and I look exactly the same) and people everywhere I went from hair to reception thought I was 16! All the employees at all these various places were asking my parents and our guests how old I am...they were all shocked. A few times, my husband (who is less than 2 years older than me but looks slightly older than he is) has been mistaken as my dad!! What do you think the implications (if any) will be when I'm out of school and practicing? Does anyone here have a similar experience? Hopefully I will impress my patients by being knowledgeable, professional, and confident during exams, but sometimes I just wonder if they will take me as seriously. Also, will it be harder to find patients if they know what I look like? Maybe people don't even care about this. I have no idea. Just wondering if anyone had any thoughts. Thanks!
