Does anyone else have troubles accepting life with disabilities? I hate not working and this is frustrating

      Oh my gosh. Yes I definitely do. I can't work or drive unless I'm seizure free for 7 years and I never can stay seizure free for no longer than a year it sucks. But I do have a husband who used to be a volunteer firefighter so he knows exactly what he's doing when I wind up having one.💕 I'm praying for everyone out there in the world who deals with epilepsy

      It’s so hard! But remember you’re in a much harder battle than everyone else so working for us chronically ill is even more challenging than people imagine. Know that you are taking care of yourself first and that is what matters most!

      Exactly I worked in retail Wholefoods but it’s very active and unfortunately I can’t do that full or part time. I am actively looking for wfh job part time

      100%. I can’t do what I initially studied, so I’ve gotta find a way to switch gears. I feel like it’s impossible to get disability, so I’m just going to look for what I can do? I’m not sure yet, but I know I hate feeling like I can’t work most jobs now

      Yes! I feel like my self esteem has taken a real nosedive. I loved working, but now it would be impossible.

      Definitely, I was the bread winner, plus I got insurance. Then five months of being on leave from work and I couldn’t go back so my wife has to take on everything. I feel hopeless, like I’m a disappointment I’m not good enough or I’m not trying. And to top it all off I was proscribed a new medication that make my libido a level below non existent

      It is the most debilitating feeling in the world. I used to be a work horse, 80 hour work weeks, very little sleep, always busy and stressed but I loved it. Now I feel trapped. I have lost a lot of friends and my social life is nonexistent. The look you get when you tell.someone you're on disability is absolutely infuriating. Its not a choice I have made for myself but a situation I find myself in. My mental and emotional health is hanging by a thread. I used to smile. I remember smiling. Now Im lucky if I can convince myself to get out of bed each morning.
