I don't know you, or what has happened to you, but it's a burden you'll have to bear on your own. No one is interested because it doesn't concern them. If they give legitimacy to what you're telling them, then they have to rationalize that together with the fears they already have. They'd rather live in denial. It's much easier.

Well, yeah there's nothing you can do to change the situation... but being there is usually all it takes. Healing takes time.
That's kind of why I started this thread. I understand and know why people avoid the topic, or can't deal with it, or what have you. And many times we end up alone in it. So... what can we do *for ourselves*? I mean, beyond prayer. There are a good many folks out there who simply do not find solace in that.

I think it also has to do with ego.
For example. Caladonea is seeing angels, but I never have. If angels really exist, then she must be special because they show themselves to her. Which means, since I've never seen an angel, I'm not special.
Ergo, angels don't exist.
Hey there. Well I don't have photos of the spot on the back of my neck because there's hair growing over it, and I'm not about to shave that for some silly photo. Besides, I keep picking at it - so I'm not going to claim it as irrefutable. The implant in my finger was removed one day in a rather odd way. The one behind my ear just disappeared and, like a silly fool, I turned in my only other physical evidence to someone who claimed to be researching but these days I wonder. I truly wonder. So if you don't believe me, I'm okay with that.
As for seeing fairy tale creatures: yes, thank you very much. Of course nowadays I know that the Medieval fairy tale descriptions match modern abduction events pretty closely. :-) And I never saw them so much as heard them and did as told.
And government conspiracies: the one time I managed to wake almost fully for an abduction was during a military encounter. Which means my own tale is related to your information slightly - and I don't share it here because it's no different from anyone else's. well okay I did talk about it in that one post over thar. But. I've come to terms with it. In fact, waking up that one time was probably the best thing to have ever happened to me. The events were no longer just "dreams" and some part of me settled. It was like "Ah, okay then!" and I felt better.
Before that? Yes, I knew there were conspiracies. All you gotta do for stuff like that is open yer eyes a little and pay attention. They're getting more and more blatant as time goes by. And it's a scarey world we live in.
The only UFO I've ever seen with my waking eye I took a photo of myself. You know digital cameras can take photos of things our naked eye can't see. So I took photos of the sky near my house out of curiosity. I was surprised to have caught a diamond formation and a beamship that was just hovering over this closed off area of woodland nearby. Never got photos like that again, although I take them once in a while. I'm currently at Fort Polk. There's not a thing here. Argh.
