If the enemy bruisers are bursting you down in two shots, then I believe the solution is to not challenge enemies with a five level lead on you. Also, bruisers are the anti-carry. Do not challenge your counters.
I'm really trying to take this thread seriously, but... gah! You must be trolling!
You're Brand! If you're ganked in the laning phase, stun them and flash away! If you're targeted during teamfights, deal your insane burst damage, and let your team pick up the leftovers! Don't overextend yourself, don't open yourself up to easy ganks, and remember: Brand is a hard carry. He has no natural escape mechanisms like many other carries, but he deals more damage.
People aren't taking you seriously, because we are not having your problem.
