Unhappy So many things wrong

I'm having lots of health issues lately...well, basically for the last 2 years and it's just non-stop and makes my depression and anxiety so much worse.

A year ago, I was working and felt ok-ish and independant. My life is a complete mess now, compared. I had to stop working because of back problems (a bulging disc in my lower back, arthritic spine and shoulder/neck pain that lead to constant headaches...I have been told by 3 doctors that I have fibromyalgia...yet I can't get help)

I feel so worthless because I essentially have no income because of having to stop work, I have no health insurance for treatment and I've had to stay with my parents...I feel like I've lost all of my freedom. The pain I'm in every day coupled with the depression just makes it all almost unbearable. I've started the process to see if I can receive disabilty but I feel this is a long shot. Anyone else in this process or been through it? Did you feel similar? I don't know...I just feel like I'm going nowhere and haven't been for a long time. I don't know what to do. I'm going to start taking some online classes in January to try and get something going...but the motivation is just not there and I doubt that I can follow through.

I have a friend who went through a similar situation. She has a degenrative issue with her neck and spine. I know it took her a while to get herself refocused and back on track. One health issue piling on top of another can really drag a person down.

I think taking some online classes is a great idea. Not only will it give you a sense of accomplishing something, but it may help restore a sense of freedom to you. You do the classes you want to do and you get what you want out of it.

And who knows? Maybe you find a whole new career/life that you never considered before!

Good luck.
