Is a "How are you doing?" to much to ask?

I just don't know. I go back and forth on this. Should I care or should I not give a damn.

I have never been someone who can ask for attention. But sometimes it would be nice.

Not one inquiry into my life or how I am doing from anyone in person in a very long time.

Posted on the dreaded FB about my mom's day. About my vacation. And not one family member inquires. Well one specific. My brother. We have not spoken now in years yet he "likes" my posts. I find it hypocritical of him to like anything he cannot speak about like our mother.

Maybe it's me. I do pride myself on having the fewest FB friends.

I want it both ways.

Pay no attention to me as I am not worth it.

Goddamit look over here!

A simple call or someone to ask how am I ... and actually care to hear an answer... would give me some more fuel.

I am I continually self supporting, self energizing, self everything for the time being. eff it. I will not give up just cuz no one can care less.

I know this is not something I should expect but I live life without many of the basics others take for granted.

This is a complete and total whine.... so no preaching please. I just want to stamp my feet!!!

Brother, I thought you were doing so well that I didn't need to ask. You have been a beacon of success.

Well Mr. Trach... I do thank you for that. But the day I accept any part of being a beacon is the day I may just not make it.

You all know more about me and my life than nearly all the people in it that can see me. Odd feeling. But a good one no less.

Weasel... I am going through the same thing! Yikes. Check out my posts for the past couple days. I feel for you for sure. Hang in there bud! You are always so generous with the weekender bus thing. I know people here do care and you aren't invisible.

And I know exactly what you mean, Weasel. I'm closer to the people here than I am to the people in my physical life.

I have to keep them at a distance to be able to live my life. You folks can deal with the real me. I thank you for that.

5000 posts Weasel! How are you doing?

I feel like that too sometimes... Actually, every time I wanted to share something on FB, I regretted it because I guess you do expect some feedback, but can't have it both ways if you haven't been actively participating before... But you know what, you don't need that. We're better.

I just want to say I care very much how you are. You are a kind, caring and gentle man. My 3D world would be wonderful if I knew more people like you.

Trach wears curlers? Cool.

Ken, oh how I get where you are coming from. Just know you aren't alone.

*hugs*
