First of all, I'm sorry to hear about the turn your life has now taken. This is not an easy road, but it's navigable with the help of friends, a good doctor and a good attitude. It sounds like you have all of them, so you are very fortunate.
Please keep posting and sharing your thoughts, feelings, concerns and issues. I was in a very similar situation a few months ago. You will find that "laying things on the table" so that other can comment on them will help you make sense of all of this.
Welcome to TheBody! We can always use more attitudes like yours in the group.
