Re: Does a party NEED to be "Optimized"
You don't need to play a healer though. There are other ways. Heck you have 3 party members who can use a wand of cure light wounds. At level 2 that's less of an option. But you could for example play a battle cleric or druid, and provide temporary healing until the party can afford wands. Without devoting any of your build towards it, only spells temporarily. If you can't heal at all, then that's going to cost the party a lot of expensive potions (expensive at level 2 anyway). So I'd say you do need at least minor healing. Perhaps even a tanky paladin with lay on hands and the heal skill (to double rest HP), but that's a bit of a stretch.
It isn't fair however that you are the one forced to do the healing. Perhaps someone else should take that role. It is totally fine for you to play a tank if you want to and it fits well enough with the party. If you really loathe healing you may want to discuss with your group, not us, about someone else perhaps taking a divine caster and at least doing temporary healing. Because at the same time it's not fair to force someone else to heal. You have to talk about this with each other and hash it out. Worst case perhaps an NPC could do it.
