Been there, didn't do that

"besides your warped views on audio, you are NOT interested in anyone else problems"

You're right, I'm not. Everyone in the world has problems, some a lot worse than yours. 16 years ago, I was in a near fatal car crash. I was driving to work in an interstate in the rain and a guy fell asleep at the wheel of his car. He swerved hitting me in a way that sent my car hyroplaning in a slow spin and compltely out of control. The antilock brakes didn't help and I wound up hitting the concrete center divider head on at about 50 mph. I saw it coming but there was nothing I could do about it, I expected to die. The shoulder harness and seat belt saved my life as did the engineered energy absorbing crumple zones in the car. The car was totaled but I was alive although dazed. Four doctors told me it was a miracle I had survived it. It wasn't until the next day that I was in serious pain. I went to see the company nurse and on her instructions a chiropractor and orthopedist. An X-ray showed my spine was twisted like a pretzel. When the intense headaches started about two weeks later, I went for an EEG and they decided I had a concussion too. I couldn't think straight. There were days I could barely stand up or walk. I went to physical therapy three times a week for four months and chiropractic therapy three times a week for a year and a half. At about the same time my father had his leg amputated from diabetes and I had to drive 50 miles each way every weekend to see him taking turns with my sister who went weekdays. Even with my bad back, I had to load his heavy wheelchair in the trunk of his Chevy and take him to restaurants, haircuts, and whatever else he wanted. Because of my concussion, I was fighting with everyone at work including my boss and was put on probation. I nearly lost my job. But I decided the first day that the worst thing I could do for my mental health was to feel sorry for myself and stay home. If I could walk, I got up and went to work even if it just meant sitting at my desk talking to people. There is no worse self abasement a human being can suffer than self pity. I don't know how much your complaints are real and how much are made up. I don't care. There are millions of people in this world far worse off than you are.

It's clear from the fact that you keep posting here that what you really want is attention and pity. Well as long as the others keep giving it to you, you will keep coming back for it. If you trade insults with people face to face as readily as you do here, it is small wonder you spend so much time alone. People quickly discover they don't want to be around you.
