I'm utterly without community to the point where I'm struggling with daily suicidal ideation and sadly cynical to any chance of me ever experiencing a feeling of "community."

Much of that comes from my own lack of effort or misery, but I think it's fair to say that as far as human warmth is concerned, so much of this world seems like it's going through a god-damned ice age.

You've been reading through Braiding Sweetgrass too, eh?

I'm on the final section of the book now, and you're absolutely right. The soul-sucking emptiness of the dominant culture makes me suicidal every time I'm faced with it, and that's every single day. I don't know what to do, I've been in despair for more than half a decade now.
