Gosh yes. My personal life became a real mess. I was trying to work and trying to keep my husband happy, and trying to explain to family and friends what was going on. The stress was huge. No one believed me so I was facing this foe alone. I tried writing down my feelings in a journal and talking with a mental health therapist, but life was not improving the way I had hoped. Then my husband and I got divorced, and my whole world fell apart. I was on my own and did not have enough money to live on. Lucky for me good friends welcomed me into their home and I survived. My disability came through after seven years of appeals and now I am on my own and making the best of what I have. My hope is that you have family support because without it life can be very hard.
