I Sometimes Feel As Though I Don't Exist

For the people out there who feel invisible. 605 People

    90% of the time that I'm at work,

    nobody really talks to me and I have no desire to talk to them. Whenever my coworkers do strike a conversation it's usually about work and nothing else. I feel left out when I see them all laugh and share stories to each other while I sit there pretending like I'm enjoying...

    I have people around me

    but I feel like I don't exist because I have Borderline Personality Disorder and this is a symptom of the illness. It's a strange feeling. It's because I feel empty a lot and like I don't connect to anyone.

    I seem to be a ghost among the living.

    I might as well live the (after)life of a ghost. It's just so hard to go on

    I have my friends, but

    so many of them treat me as though I'm not standing right there next to them. If I left, they wouldn't know. If I wasn't even there that day, they wouldn't care. Same goes with my family. Maybe I wasn't suppose to exist because that's probably why I'm invisible.

    Like a living ghost. Every word I say is an echo everyone ignores. With everyone else around me, they laugh and have a good time and enjoy life. Why does it seem to me that I can't have that? The more I think about it the more I honestly think about suicide. I am just crying...

    In a literal sense, sometimes I don't feel real.

    I feel like I'm without substance and my entire life is really just a dream I'm having in another person's sleep. I sometimes wonder if an event in my memory ever really happened at all. All of these memories seem so solid, but at times, nothing can assure me that they happened...
