Hi Huge Tracts of Land (awesome handle, BTW. That movie makes me so happy!)
You're definitely not alone in feeling that way re: the 0 reply thing. I also have the flip side of that, where I notice how many encouraging posts a single user has posted and I'm like, "wow, I need to engage more." So, yay! Connection! Engagement! Darkness and lovable weirdos! (I use "weirdo" as a term of endearment, I identify as 100% weirdo.)
I see by your signature that we might have some crossover issues - my mother is deceased, and never had a solid diagnosis, but I'm fairly certain she was cluster B/BPD. I'm totally available to trade stories if you'd like!
all the very best,

Self-employed in the Arts (read: "Broke")
Can't afford psych diagnosis/meds
So I donate to MIHH sometimes
