It’s extremely likely that I am the eccentric one. On top of that I’m the black sheep. Eccentric, yes. Black sheep material, not so much.
Most of the people in my family are even-tempered. No one else has had anger management issues.
After I had children, it was more difficult to control my emotions. Meltdown city. Then I was on medication for awhile.
Eventually, the medication did not help. It went beyond sad and emotional.I’m the only family member since Aunt Jane to see the inside of a psychiatric ward. I can’t remember the aunt’s real name. My grandma only mentioned her once.
After that episode, things turned around, except that no one from my family ever contacted me. Having me around was more than average people can take I guess.No one calls or writes. No one sends me invitations. It’s sad but it’s their loss.

    1. I know – right?! I don’t understand either. I realize that I’m not “normal” but my problems weren’t worth ostracizing me for. I’m not a crackhead . . . I was just an emotional wreck. ๐Ÿ˜‰ That should be the title of my next post or book. lol
      But nowadays, I’m pretty grounded. Still not “normal” but not a ticking time bomb either.

      1. Yeah, they are weird and horribly, horribly average. That wasn’t nice, right? Oh well. ๐Ÿ˜‰
        Too bad we can’t pick our families. Or can we? Hmmmm….

  1. My first husband’s family did the same thing the one and only time I end up in the peanut farm (psych ward). I was no longer welcome in their little neck of the woods. Some people just can’t cope with those of us with miswired brains… mostly because it makes them take a look at themselves and wonder, “could there be something wrong with me too?” Look to long into the abyss and all of that. As the saying goes “Normal ain’t nuthin’ but a settin’ on the washin’ machine.”
