I go to family functions and leave feeling like something is missing. I'm not sure when this started. I try to join the conversations, but someone else usually speaks at the same time and I fade away or if I do actually think I am heard no one responds to what I say and they just change the subject. My sister and my cousin have kids close in age to mine, so we do have things in common. I don't know why I feel like such an outsider. I'm at the point now I really don't even want to go to these things. I also feel left out because I'm not always told about family plans until last minute, like an afterthought. I'm having the same issues with friends and work relationships too, so I really think something is not right. I was never the life of the party, but I haven't always felt invisible either. Does this happen to anyone else? Do you know when/how it started? Did you figure out a way to improve things?

Thanks Iskkra. I guess I do need to make more effort to be connected. I haven't logged on to Facebook in over a month!
