I haven't been in group..
I hear you how hard and painful it is for you..
especially to feel left out and invisible.
I would feel just as hurt.
I think the T should try to include you..She knows why you are there for, and part of your history...so she should know how hard it is to reach out, to talk, and how easy to minimize things and feel worthless.
I would feel very hurt.
Maybe that would be a good place to start? Just walk in and tell them that you are feeling in pain because you feel invisible? just like back then :-( waiting for someone to notice...
I admire you for having the strength to even try this.
about forgiveness...I share your views...
I don't want to forgive someone who never ever regretted or apologized and would hurt me all over if he wasn't dead now because he enjoyed seeing me in pain.
I hope you can tell them how you truly feel. Maybe that would be helpful to you and the T could change her way of managing the group?
or at least ask you more...
sending you support,
