How Can I?

It is really difficult to deal with an impossible situation while trying to maintain some sense of positivity. How do I convey my angst, pain, fear  and need in a way that precipitates people taking action if I don't in some way feel it? It comes off differently when I just tell you stuff than when I express what I feel. 

But when I have to express what I feel over and over and over it doesn't help me. I wish I could step away from this all, and let someone else do the talking for me. 

It is not that I won't let someone. It is just not anything people are lining up to do. 

All anyone would need to do is reach out to others on my behalf. It sounds so simplistic, and yet very few are willing. 

I get it. I really do. But that doesn't put an end to my need. It doesn't put an end to my dilemmas. 

If you were in my shoes, I am fairly certain you'd feel a lot differently about any reservations you may have had. Being in the midst of it yourself has a way of giving perspective that is jarring. It is also frustrating. And scary.

How can you get help on the scale needed if very few really understand what you are going through enough to have the feeling of empathy often required to step forward instead of retreat?
