I can relate. One week my mother knew me and the next week I cut my hair and she didn't know who I was.

What about adding some more line breaks? The lines run together quickly in this format. I think you could really add to the feeling of being left and lonely by creating more space around your words. It will make your readers pause and really appreciate all the intensity you're using for this piece. Nice work. ^_^
