Recent frustrations and difficulties have fallen in place in such a way that I feel I need to reach out to strangers who identify with me, so here I am. I don't know what exactly I should say about myself here, though, as it seems that anonymity is promoted here. I can follow the rules, but it hurts a bit to be anonymous when I am feeling like I need to be close to others to feel any sort of improvement. I suppose I should start by giving a very broad introduction and generally stating how I'm feeling. I'm in my late 20's, and I'm in the South East USA. I have been consistently feeling abandoned and actively un-cared for, for quite some time now. I feel stuck and trapped, and I feel like I am out of options. I'm tired of hearing the same answers and suggestions. I hope I can find some advice or bit of knowledge somewhere that makes sense and rings true for me.
