How can you know that? There are billions of people alive right now on earth - have you checked with each one? Even within the United States alone, there are hundreds of millions of people, and lots of them have bizarre problems. It seems pretty arrogant the way you are so convinced of your own absolute uniqueness. Sure, we are all unique individuals, but that is not what I am talking about.

Given the number of humans around, it is likely - more than likely, almost certain - that you are wrong about there being no one who can identify with you and no one who has "ever experienced anything even remotely similar to [your] multifaceted bizarre existence".

That is not to deny that your story could be interesting, or that it could be unusual. But unusual is not the same as unique.
