    I Don't Even...

    Sometimes I feel like I don't exist, life rushes around me. People exchange brief glances, gestures, and general acknowledgment while I seem to stand in the eye of the storm, unconnected and unaffected. The wind blows hardest downhill as I walk up hill, but it passes right...

    Reality

      One day reality hit me; i basically have no FRIENDS. I mean..if i were to have a party-it'd basically be empty. If i were to die-nobody would really be there. I'm to afraid/shy to break free and join things on my campus. *just wanted to share*

    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

    Inconsiderate People Are the Worse

    Inconsiderate people make me shrink for some reason. Whether intentional or not always seem to make me feel less than what I am. These people are the absolute worse at making me feel as though I don't exist. I don't really know what people are thinking when they treat others the...

    I'm Nothing More Than A Fading Memory

    People can see me every day, talk to me frequently, get to know me, and yet I still disappear and become a stranger. I walk through crowds and don't even get a little notice. I have to dodge people so they don't run into me. It can be fun when I want to be alone, but when I want...

    Scared Of Being Forgotten

    I don't know what it is, but I have a fear of being forgotten. Mostly to the people that have been in my life for a significant amount of time. Some of you may have this fear and it's completely normal because if you feel forgotten, you feel invisible which makes you feel worse...

    We all live in our own little worlds

    where only rich and famous people seem to be alive. We are the invisible oxygen that keeps them running. Kinda like slaves to the powerful.

    I try to reach out. To talk to people.

    Make friends. I try to engage in conversations with my family and the people around me but it's like it never works. I feel people distance themselves from me. When I hide my face, people care. I hide it easiest on the net. When I show people what I look like, they pretend to...

    Invisible

    Most of the time I do really.. it's like I'm not here. People look past me like I'm invisible. People barely even glance at me much. No one really seems bothered by my exsitence. Even on the internet nowadays I don't feel like people are really taking note of me anymore. I'm...

    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.

    Getting Better I Think

    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...

    Am I Invisible?

    Does anyone really see ME?  I think my kids see the maid, the cook, the learning coach, the scout leader.  At church, they see a potential committee member, a mom, a soprano.  I'm a volunteer, a voice. My husband says he does, but even he doesn't see what's...

    Although I hang around with a group of "friends", it feels as if I am slowly sinking into the depths of an ocean. While they are chattering on about a mindless topic, I am the awkward person sitting off toward the corner. Do they even see me? Think of me? KNOW me? Because quite...

    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.
