Quoting Chroma Hex [+1]:" I would give anything to have a full time job right now. I'm such a people person, I always do so well ... [snip!] ... guilty about starting it? Did you ever get over it and accept yourself as a disabled person? I'm too young to feel so old. =["
I know exactly how you feel. They won't give me disability, but I have Chronic Pancreatitis and can't work. It's tough, but we get through it. I felt guilty when we first got food stamps but now we make $21 over the limit so we can't even get those but at least we get insurance through the state which I am grateful for or we'd have more piles of medical bills. I don't think I will ever get over the fact that my body just doesn't function like other people's. I feel like I am 80 years old when I just turned 23. I don't know that I will ever accept it. It's a struggle between wanting to be normal and work or accepting the fact that if I do get a job there will be issues on days I can't come in or don't feel good. I've had to quit lots of jobs because of my health. It truly does suck, I am right there with ya.
