Hello Everyone. I just needed to vent and ask what you guys think of this situation thats causing me severe depression for some reason. My dad just got married to this woman a few months ago and she has 5 kids around my age (i'm 25) and 3 of them are getting married this summer. One of them is getting married in a few weeks and I'm not invited. Now that doesnt really bother me cause I dont do good at things like that, but I feel that they keep rubbing it in my face. My step mom keeps showing me all these cute things she made for the wedding and how yummy the cake is gonna be and all that stuff, but she says it in way like she's purposly trying to make me upset. I'm a single mom with 2 kids that is on very very low income and sometimes my dad helps me out with a few bills or things that my kid's need that I just dont cant afford and lately it's been with gas for my car.  And I know it makes her so mad that he does that, so I feel like she thinks she's punishing me by doing and saying these things. I dont want this to come out sounding like i'm jealous becaus i'm not, I've had my chances but choose to wait on getting married cause taking care of kids and with my health going downhill I just dont have the time or energy right now. But I dont get why she keeps rubbing it in my face that I cant be invited, over and over, everytime I see them. It makes me sooo depressed that I'm being treated like this. I havent done anything to her. What do you think I should do??
thank you for listening.

Hi Kitty

If it is a matter of you not knowing the kids,or they live out of state,she might just be excited and wanting to share her excitement with you.
If there is a remote possibility that the above might not be true,and she is in fact trying to rub it in..then maybe you could reverse it on her. Start asking her about the plans for the wedding... ie: have you found the right caterer yet,or whatever else you know they have been working on. Once she answers that question,then quickly move on to another subject that does not involve the wedding.

That way you are showing that you care enough for her to ask,but don't care enough about the wedding to keep hearing about it.

If it keeps going on,then you might want to talk to your dad about sounds like he has really been there for you,and hopefully he will then.

Keep us posted on what is going on..

Please remember,I am not a professional..I am just a person who is also fighting depression.

I know I'm in my own little world, but it's ok. They know me here.
