It is odd that we are in the same emotional place at this time. Thank you for posting this and helping me work through my issues also.
I am at the point where taking disability seems like such a bad thing. People will look down on me and it makes me a burden to everyone as well as my family. Someone told me today that no one but myself and my fiance need to know. Why do other people need to know where my money comes from? Disability, my great fiance, Mary Kay, or the money fairy in the sky? WHen asked simply say that I am blessed enough to be a homemaker.
Whatever happened to a woman staying home with her family? Why do women have to work if their significant other works and they can afford their home? Or, in many of our cases, are too disabled to work and receive help. That is why we pay taxes so that when this happens we can have help.
Hang in there undetermined. You are not alone.
Again thank you for posting.
