    It may be the social media sites

    that are making me feel this way, but every day I feel like someone cast a permanent invisibility charm on me. Anytime I go out by myself, particularly if it is to my college campus or to the doctor or the dentist, I don't feel invisible, everyone greets me and is always...

    Almost everyone I meet never listens to what I

    say and treat me like I'm invisible. :(

    Needing My Cave

    I'm being driven to retreat again. To run and hide. Shut out the world. No connections, where are the connections? My anchors. Adrift on a cold, dead, black sea. There are no storms. Just a great void, totally empty and devoid of life, love, feeling. All feeling except pain and...

    Hiding In Broad Daylight I watch you pass by,

    Wanting you to notice me. You hear my words and say nothing. Your silence speaks volumes. Crushed, i feel myself pull back a little more. Watching as the bright and beautiful people flit around you, Whispering praises in your ears. As you bask in their attentions. As the...

    Sometimes

    Sometimes there are moments that I just feel like no one sees me or cares. It's as if I am not there. Since I like to help people and let them get there way I am starting to feel that I don't really know myself. I don't know how to get to know me either. I had one friend who...

    The 'invisible' Syndrome

    I've suffered from this most of my life.  How easy it is for me to just fade into the background, to avoid engaging with others, to keep to myself and avoid getting too close to anyone.  I rarely meet anyone who I feel comfortable enough to share anything very ...

    Inside my own family.

    .. In 2012, my mum was diagnosed & treated for AML. My dad spent a lot of time with her at the hospital, leaving my brother & myself to look after the house. My brother had a girlfriend, so it was pretty much me by myself. I took on the struggle alone, because I felt like I...

    Invisible Is The Best Word I Can Think Of...

    I don't know if invisible is the right word, but it's the best one I can come up with at the moment. I feel like I'm not important to others. Like... They'll forget the things I've said or done, perhaps forget I even exist. I remember people I meet, but I'm afraid they will...

    Yesterday, my friend called me and asked me to spend the night. She only asked me because her other friend ditched her for someone else, which I didn't really care about. Later, the other friend and her friend came over as well, which was also fine. The trouble was, I felt...

    A Lot Of Times

    A lot of times, when I talk to people or try to contribute to a group conversation, people ignore me. They start talking over me, or even turn away. I don't think I'm annoying, and I'm not mean, so I don't know why this happens.

    I am introverted and generally content with

    being on my own, but that doesn't mean I never get lonely. When I do, it feels like I'm desperate for anyone to notice me, to acknowledge my existence, so we can share some time in each other's human experience. But nearly every time someone reaches out to me, I wish they'd...

    I Am Invisible Now And Loving It!

    I love being invisible. It's the greatest feeling in the world. To hide in PLAIN SIGHT. To walk amongst the enemy and they have no idea. It's almost like being a spy, but not. I love it. Can't wait to hook up with some of my old pals again. It is going to be a hoot. WOOT!!!

    I Love Being Invisible, Really!

    It makes me feel safe. After two attempted sexual assaults and one full blown rape, I enjoy not having men stare at me or hit on me. I like feeling unnoticed as I go about my day. The days where I am not invisible tend to be the ones I struggle with.
