I feel like I have no place I can speak without fear of being piled on, talked down or otherwise attacked. Many places I frequent are dominated by 'one side' and ho boy, don't you dare have a different opinion. Yes, it has happened to me...and I've seen it happen to many others. It's why I don't even lurk on the DA boards anymore, for instance. What's the point? Haven't anxiety issues doesn't help my confidence in speaking my mind either. *sigh* It is easier online but...as mentioned before, many social media areas are dominated by one side. I'm on neither side, politically, as I have views that crosses into both: I'm politically homeless, you could say. I try not to blindly accept what someone tells me is true (which is admittedly very hard)...and that's resulted in trust issues in many areas: Main Stream Media? They've long stopped just giving straight, raw facts and insist on giving us 'their' interpretation on events. Hospitals/Doctors? Do they really care about my

So due to the pandemic, our local DMV offices were closed until mid Jun, my license expires this month (Jul). The DMV, when it reopened, is only offering limited services for the first 30 days (namely, focusing on suspected/already expired licenses/registrations/etc), but was offering an extension for everyone of up to 90 days. Originally thought I would be included in that extension, so I figured, just wait until Aug for everything to die down a bit. I double checked their site to make sure...and...found out that extension ONLY applies to those that will have their registration/license/etc expire before Jul 16 (this was't clear until recently). Any that expire after that MUST renew on time. My license expires on the 28th. So, OK, I figured, let's make an appointment to ensure I'm not waiting for hours over there (I normally don't bother with an appointment). Earliest available appointment is not until late Aug. Well fuck...looks like I'll be pulling a likely all dayer on the

I have so much I need to let out...but there are very few places I can go to voice it...at least...without getting dog piled upon for having the wrong 'opinion' on things. It's not even thoughts that are really against the majority stance on a site, but it's different 'just' enough to cause drama. And typical me, I can't explain my side adequately enough, leading to more drama/thread locking/post deletion. It leads me to feeling like I have no voice, nothing of worth to contribute to the discussion. No where to go, no one to talk to that wouldn't be just 'preaching the choir'. Feels like it's better off for me to just stay quiet. Keep everything inside.... I'd rather not get 'piled upon' here too, as I won't be able to handle it, so I'll leave it at that.
