Ugh, it sucks to post something entitled "I feel like I am invisible" and nobody replies!
I'm sorry you're feeling so invisible...unfortunately it's a state I'm too familiar with, myself. When my brother and I were in school (he's five years older), I wasn't me, I was his little sister. "Oh, you're So-&-So's little sister!" "Could you tell So-&-So hi for me...?" It took him graduating and moving away before people even realized I was a person in my own right. Not that it mattered much, I was still largely invisible.
I even dreamed I turned invisible once. I was even overlooked on a forum called "We Are NOT Invisible"!
You know it's bad when you're invisible to other invisible people.
The situation with your cousins sounds especially hurtful. I do wish I had advice for you, but all I have is empathy. It especially sucks since it sounds like you're really trying but it just doesn't work. Life is incredibly unfair, sometimes. I do hope this doesn't turn you off from trying, that something starts to change for the better at some point.
I hope you can find something of use around here. Welcome to the forum.
If I don't reply to you, it's NOTHING PERSONAL. It's my ANXIETY.
