    I am so overwhelmed by my life.

    The part that makes it so bad is no one cares, even though they can see it. I help everyone but I can't get anyone to lift a finger for me. Today was a very hard day for me. Yet, people come in with their demands but no compassion for what I am going through. I keeping asking...
