feeling depressed and old

I am 45. If I am successful, I will be 46. Is that too old? Just feel really out of place with everyone I know who is done already. Probably some of them are looking forward to sending their kids off to college in the next few years. And there I will be with a toddler. I imagine what it will be like in kindergarten on back to school night as a 50 year old. All the other mothers will be in their 30's. I started in my mid 30's but it just didn't work for me. I tried all types of treatments including immune and nothing worked. I live in the suburbs and everyone pretty much has their kids in their 30's. I know that in the cities, you see a lot of older parents, but here in the suburbs, you don't see much of it at all. I feel really out of place.
