The other thing is that, after the 33+ 'years', I'm a bit 'beat-up'.

What do folks 'expect'?

33+ 'years' of seeing the Need, doing what's Necessary, but
being ever-more 'ostracized', is 'all-sweetness-and-light'?

I'm Hurting, big-'time'.

=Not= from anything that was inherent in doing the work, but
as a result of the intense 'aloneness' that the doing of the work
imposed, compounded by folks 'moving away from'.
