Thanks so much @MickeyLou, sorry to hear you’ve had such a rough time of late. Hang in there and always feel free to vent here, helps to get it out sometimes!
This is so true for many of us!! Great article!!
…just plain sucks, no other way to describe it.
I’ve been in therapy for depression, anxiety, and acceptance. It’s been very difficult but I am starting to see some hope. Diagnosed in November 17 and had to stop working (26 years of teaching). I hid from the world sticking my toe in the world once in a while. Working hard on living the life I do have and acceptance of the losses. This disease…
