Welcome to the forum, Fred D.!
I get the sense that in your youth you felt so abandoned and let down by so many adults you began to question if anyone would ever truly be there for you and take care of you. It sounds like you fought your way through some intensely dark times to come out strong the other side, as though you are a phoenix rising from the ashes of your former life.
We are grateful for your words of support for youth who are struggling today…thank you for sharing your story here, and letting people who may be lost know you are there to help them find their way. The more we can all support each other, the better this world will be
