I'm not sure if I'm exaggerating or not, or what it even means if it's true, but...
Lately I feel like everyone around me is ignoring me. Sound wierd? Here's a few examples.
1) In class- I'll raise my hand and half the time (since I'm the youngest in the room) I don't get called on. Other times I'll contribute to a convo that a bunch of others are joined in on and it's as if I never spoke. The prof might look at me along with a few other people and then they just continue with the convo.
2) at work, I talk and no one ever hears me. It's like they tune me out or something. I have to say something 4 or 5 times just to be heard. I do have a relatively deep voice and although I don't shout, I'm far from a whisperer.
3) When I am home, which is rare anymore, my mom's a good listener, but my dad, that's another story. Take for instance my convo with him yesterday... "Hey, how are you?"(him)..."Terrible, my neck is killing me"(me)...."That's good, anything new?"(him)..."*pause*" (me)... See what I mean?
Keep in mind that it's not like I'm the villiage idot who constantly is spewing from the mouth with incoherent trash that makes no sense. I am fairly intelligent and try my best to convey that through my communicating.
I just kept thinking in class tonight (taking all suicidal ideations out of the thought )..."would it really matter if I wasn't here?!?", "No one notices me anyways".
Maybe I'm blowing things out of proportions, but has this ever happened to anyone else?

Ignoring me isnt possible . If I want someones attention , I have it , end of discussion . If I want to be heard , I am , if I want to be seen , I am & If I want someone to listen , they pretty much do . I have a very "Alpha" personality & I've been told , an imposing presense . The only one who can & does ignore me is Mrs Q LmFaO !!!!!

I know how you feel, at work i'm one of the youngest, even though i get left in charge and a lot of the other people who are older than me don't care and don't think I have a clue what i'm talking about. They think that since they are older that they should be left in charge, and that i shouldn't work as much as them, and i have to repeat myself a lot. Or i'll say something and people will do the opposite and i'll just sit there going "I told you so" in my head.

Eh, I get ignored a whole lot. I'm used to it by now because I've been ignored for years and years, so yeah, I know exactly how you feel.
