Everybody in my family is healthy, happy, successful, and without psychological problems. I, on the other hand, suffer from debilitating chronic pain, depression, severe social anxiety disorder, and I’m not successful. In fact, I still live with my parents and I’m 25 years old. Since I’m surrounded by healthy, happy, successful people, I feel like even more of a loser than I would if I lived alone or in a “normal” family. I told my mother that I do not deserve to be a part of our family. I wholeheartedly believe they would be better off without me. Some day I hope to gain the confidence to swan dive from a bridge on the west cost (I’m sure you-all know which one):smile: . I think that would be a cool way to go out, and death would be quite certain (I assume this is not breaking forum rules since bridge jumping suicides are common knowledge and I don’t mention details. If it does, sorry). Anyways, back to my main point. Does anybody else feel like the black sheep of your family? How do you cope with being a black sheep?
