I know the feeling too It seems when you need people the most, no one is around. Just know that YOU are there for you. You can count on your inner self to hear you. Maybe that sounds silly, but looking back, I went through stages of feeling angry that no one would help me, to feeling hopeless, like they'd all be better off without me. This is NOT true!
