Dear Littlesue and Brynn
Thank you so much for your replies.  I can't tell you how warming it is to know you have taken the time to read my posts and respond.  It is so comforting to have your support!

Brynn, you made perfect sense, I too have been suicidal, I am currently on antidepressants and am getting counselling.

Little sue, yes, I fear that I will go back to study and will relapse.  I am training to be a primary school teacher, although I realise this may just be too much of a stress factor and would be happy being a teacher aid.  I went to the first day of college, then to the camp which nearly killed me, then I did three weeks of teaching 2 hours a week with 11 yr olds. 

I was in bed every single day and I was having three or four panic attacks a day.  It was so stressful - I could completely relate to your comment on stress being detrimental to our illness.  Just the thought of study sends me off with nervous symptoms, I am looking at taking a year of rest.

Of course people don't understand this and all they see is you on a good day and they look at you strange.  I related as well to your embarrasment by calling in sick all the time.

I would like to write more however I'm too tired and my eyes are sore.

It would be great to get more feedback...
THanks for listening!
