    Whenever somebody tries to pray around me or with me, it makes my skin crawl. I feel nauseous and unsettled. I feel extremely creeped out and out of place. Anybody else?

    People will talk to me, but when it coming to being included, its like I don't exist. Even if I volunteer for something, no one remembers that I did.
