This is not directed at anyone; if あなた take it that way, that's your choice. I'm dealing with some heavy shit right now, I ロスト a loved one last week, and I just need to vent, and this is as good a place and topic as any.
Again, this isn't aimed at anyone. If you're sensitive, don't read it. If あなた do and get bent, well, あなた were warned.
