We do not receive encouragement hardly at all. Just a word of encouragement would be nice. We have received monetary gifts at Christmas time, but a kind word or encouragement throughout the year would definitely help so much.
People don't seem to think we are human or something. Or that when we get attacked publicly by hurtful words that it affects us much. Your ideas are wonderful, but I don't know how to let people know this without seeming self-serving. Thank you for trying to get the word out.
