My family sees me as anti social. They are probably right, but in my defence I have realised that at the family gatherings, like the lunch yesterday for 16 of us, I am invisible. People talk over me and around me. No one appears interested in what I have to say. I try to ask a question, join in the conversation, and my comments are ignored, or seem to fall on deaf ears. I can shrug it off – I do. However, avoid these occasions like the plague, and leave as soon as I possibly can without giving a justification, which would be a waste of time, there would be rolled eyes and shrugs of shoulders… ‘here goes Mummy again’ So, shall continue to be ‘anti social’ in situations like this and enjoy my encounters and long conversations with my like-minded intelligent friends!
