This is a tough one. I'm going through the same thing myself. One thing I do, is I try not to be around these two as often. When I do visit with them, I try to make sure other people are there as a "buffer". It doesn't help that my sisters are both married with children and love to talk about family related topics. I'm also an artist and they're not. They remind me in little ways that I'm different. Also, they play the "you're too sensitve" card too.

First of all, stop always saying that you hope you die first.

First I want to say hello to you and tell you that it was brave of you to post this online!

I truly do know how you feel because I have family members that have made me feel this same way in the past... and occasionally it still hurts... I have learned to do one thing about this.... and my word of advice would be....

Get yourself into youself!!!!!

Find things that make you happy (new adventure or hobby, etc...) Maybe make a new friend or get closer to the friends you have.... I would not stop hanging with your sisters but... I would not do it so much if it bothers you so much...

You need to get strong and inside get to the point where you say to yourself.... I am important and my thoughts and time is valuable... Stop yourself when you get depressed....and giving them reasons to keep making you feel the way you feel....

You sound like a great person and you deserve happiness :smileyhappy:

i am so sorry to hear what you are going through. I suggest that you talk to both of your sisters and tell them how you feel. Make a date with them to have lunch and let them know quite gently that you have been feeling left out lately and can't understand how they are leaving you out. remind them of the things that you did as kids and how you had fun together. reach out to them. its possible that they don't know how you are feeling.
