Between two sisters

My name is Olivia and I too am the middle child of three girls! I think being the middle child of three same sex children makes it even harder, especially with the competition of girls! All my life I have been known as the weird one the outcast just as thus site says. As i got older i became a bit chubby and that’s when my three year older sister made my life hell! She never let me forget about my weight issues and always used that as an excuse to make me cry. Now she is 22, I am 19 and my younger sister is 16. The 22 year old and 16 year old get along great but I however am left alone never even acknowledged. Now its my younger sister who makes fun of my weight, even though i am technically at a normal weight range. The stress from being the middle child or outcast has led to my eating disorder issues, depression, and even suicidal attempts. This site makes me happy to see that there are others living through it and going through what i had to somewhat!

Hi Olivia! First of all, I am surprised to read this. It reminds me exactly of myself. I am the middle, between two sisters. At a point in my life, I became very fat, obese I think, due to emotional eating. Believe me when I tell you that I understand exactly how to be the middle of two sisters, and how the younger sister can be very annoying. I try to spend more time outdoors when I’m feeling lonely, playing sports like badminton, you could try it, it really helps.
