does anyone else feel guilty being on disability?

does anyone else feel guilty being on disability?

I am on disability and live with my sister. She works hard. Long hours and sometimes 6 days a week. I do things around the house and cook when I’m able. But I still feel guilt.
I don’t tell anyone I’m on disability.

It is nice to have a person who can cook for you when you work 6 days a week. Or run the vacumn and do the dishes. I am sure your sister appreciates you… read more

How do you talk to your therapist when he/she always has an agenda?

How do you talk to your therapist when he/she always has an agenda?

I sometimes go to my therapist with my own agenda. A bad week, situation that was disturbing etc. My therapist always seems to have her own agenda that has nothing to do with my situation at all. I have tried to stop her and tell her what I need but that doesn't get me anywhere. I have state insurance so I am limited as to who I can see. Any suggestions?

Lost hope with doctors

Lost hope with doctors

I'm at the stage that I feel it's pointless making doctors appointments as it's never going to make me better and is a waste of time. This illness has been going on so long and my doctors had a really awkward system of making appointments which makes it worse. I hate talking on the phone which also doesn't help. Ive been battling chronic fatigue recently and could just sleep my life away. I'm not getting enough help from the mental health team, can only see them every three months. How do… read more

Does anyone feel they have to hide their sadness from spouse or significant other. Pretend your always happy when Your sad inside

Sometimes i feel like you dont want to seem like a downer all the time to your spouse or significant other so its easier to cry when alone and fake a smile whe. Your with your spouse so you dont push them away. Does anyone else fake a smile daily and suffering alone?

What are some activities/hobbies you indulge in that help you with boredom?

What are some activities/hobbies you indulge in that help you with boredom?

I have noticed that I have been taking multiple naps throughout the day, just to get through it. When I wake up in the morning all I think about is sleeping. I'm looking for some inspiration of what I could do to help with my boredom. My boredom makes me feel even more depressed which is why I think I have been sleeping so much.
Thank you in advance

Anything artistic. It doesn't have to be complex. I have been painting rocks. I write nice things on them and hide them around town.
