Why am I feel so isolated when I’m with my boyfriend and h

Why am I feel so isolated when I’m with my boyfriend and his friends. I mean it’s so great when there’re just two of us. But when it comes to his friends or his family, I always feel like he abandons me. He treats me like I don’t even exist. He makes me feel so so hurtful. Is it because of depression makes me feel like it???? I just can’t stand that feeling anymore it’s so **** hurt.

I understand you so much I feel the same around my boyfriend when he's with his family. I feel like an outsider and left out almost.

I am not making excuses for anyone, but I think your boyfriend like many others is not aware that he is abandoning you with people you barely know. It has happened to me before, too. If you feel comfortable, you could talk with him and let him know how it makes you feel. I think your depression is making you feel more sensitive. Since I am not a doctor I don't know if that is true. I know that my depression and anxiety causes me to feel more sensitive. I am sorry to hear that this is how your boyfriend makes you feel. I hope things improve for you.

Hi Shayera. I'm sorry you are going through this. Relationships can be very challenging. Whenever two people come together, it takes effort from both. I know that it is even harder when you are experiencing depression. I read some of your other posts and it appears that you have been feeling isolated for some time. Have you considered talking to your boyfriend about how you feel when you are with him and his family and friends? I know in the past, when I was dating that my boyfriend would forget me in group gatherings. He didn't do it on purpose but he was enjoying being with his family and friends. We had been together for a while so it was more like the two of us were there to enjoy other people. The time was focused on the family and friends and we would "come back together" after the gathering. Have you thought about trying to enjoy his family and friends when you are out with them? When I realized that the focus of the gatherings were his family and friends, it helped a lot and I didn't feel so isolated. Have you considered counseling on helping you deal with your relationship and emotions? I know it is difficult but things will get better. I wish you the best.
