I saw the section for mental/emotional abuse, and wondered if there was one (or could be one) for those of us who have been neglected. Thanks!

The neglect is such a big part of a life of trauma. It ranges from emotional to medical to daily needs like food and clothing. That does not even touch on the way it changes our lives. I think it would be a good idea to have a place for that specifically. I know it would be someplace I would post and read.
