It sounds like your coworkers are lacking in basic social skills. If you want to socialize, just listen and think positive thoughts. And please be kind to yourself and don’t blame yourself for other’s rudeness. I sometimes feel invisible, but I thought it was because I’m overweight. For example, I’ll be waiting for something such as at a store, and when the staff person arrives they immediately start helping the person who should be after me. I try to use humor, but over time I definitely say something. “I must be invisible” is the worst. Usually I’ll just say, “I was next”.
