Rob, I can't tell you how sorry I am that you were treated so poorly by someone who meant so much to you. Cruel...unnecessary...
I'm not sure what kind of support you have where you live. I have a local support group here, and it's become so incredibly important to me Everyone in my group has experienced the isolation of this disease at one time or another. It's so easy to just withdraw. I understand how you feel. I'm still working part time, but even at work it's simplest just to keep to myself. I don't want to talk about my illness...no one really 'gets it.' I can't do what I used to do and I don't see those I used to see. But, it's important to keep connected. A support group can help you do that. Oluwa had other great suggestions. Don't sell yourself short, Rob. You have worth as a person and will find those out there who will understand. Until then, we're here for you.
