  • Mar 4 2013: i have an extremely difficult time not only expressing myself, finding others even remotely interested in that which consumes me, but rare are any hopes of being understood.. as such, a lonely reclusivity with only my mind's eyes is unfortunately my world. it is not a gift - it is a doomed life of complete misunderstanding and marginilization.

If your topic is not eye catching or its to gaudy, work on presenting your information a little better. When you see who responds, check their demographics. Maybe there's a concentration of like mined individuals in a particular network or location.
