I'm a triplet, and I'm having a very hard time with my life. People keep calling me triplet #1, or they'll say my name and when I reply they exclaim, "I knew it! HA! I got your name right!"
I feel like people aren't really talking to ME. It feels almost inhuman to me. Does anyone know how I can deal with this, or change my mind set? Have you ever had someone tell you (if you're a triplet) "I would have left two of you at the hospital if I was your mother!"
Any advice? I'm really down about all of it, and it's also preventing me from getting close to anyone.

I'm a triplet. I know exactly how you feel. People have never said to me that they would have left 2 at the hospital though. If I were you, I'd say "I have a name." Or correct them, or ignore them. I just ignore people when they name us by numbers, but it's not very often they do. I hate it when people refer to us as "them". We're people, not a collection of objects. If the person was referring to any other group of people, he/she would have to say each of their names anyway. That hospital comment is so rude. When people say things like that it's just rude. People don't usually see all three of us together at school or anything. Not for high school, where we've become more independent. People also don't usually have trouble with our names, because we're just like any other 3 friends someone can have. We're fraternal, as well. Yet the name thing still applies, where people get mixed up sometimes. I also feel like people aren't talking to me. What we did is each of us just branched out into our own separate talents, so I became more independent through Orchestra and I got away from my sisters by doing something I love. Don't let it get you down. Being a triplet can have some positive aspects, as well.0
