This is for the people who think they are alone, for the ones who think nobody understands, and for the ones that seem to be unheard in a crowd full of people. No, this is not a pity party or a story looking for attention. This is simply me using my abilities for the better.   I understand that...

We have all been in that lonely, dark place where it seems as if no one is on our side. It feels as if we are invisible.
