Well, first of all...You have not done this to your family. Your pain has done this. It isn't your fault and you need to remember that. We have all been down Guilt ridden Ave. at one point or another...it does nobody any good. We have been through enough without blaming ourselves for every bad thing that happens. If it was at all possible we would do anything to rid ourselves of the pain so that we and our friends and family could have a normal life. But we can't do much to make it go away.
All we can do is make the best of a horrific situation. Our families love us, they loved us before we had pain, and they will love us throughout.
Lose the guilt and try to make sure that your family knows how much you appreciate everything they do for you. We could all do that...
