I also hid from this disease, telling myself it was not real, and that I just needed to toughen up,etc. in my forties,I became a workaholic, thinking this would make it go away. Now almost 70, with RX and group therapy, it is manageable. I finally absolved myself from believing I am morally lax or weak, and I take life hour by hour.
Next month, I am retiring, and I plan to do nothing for awhile, except to be comfortable in my own skin.View Thread
