You lost your job and your income and battle every day with your illness, doing what you can when you can. You lost friends (or people that called themselves that) and you're pretty much housebound. And through everything you've been through you've managed to keep your soul, when you feel yourself getting down you fight it. You do everything you can to improve your quality of life and when you do you're condemned for looking good. You're on a limited income and can't do what you used to do financially. Your husband works and pays mostly all the household bills but you pay your share and worry about "tomorrow". I'd like to know , what people do after they win their SSDI, what they do after divorce. How do we go on and survive? Or are we in financial hell forever? Dealing with our illness is one thing but our changing lifestyle is quite another. Life is certainly not the same.
