Hell, I’m 56 and two years ago, I lost my mom, I got bad back problems, I had to take two months off of work, I got kicked out my housing, I had to quit school, I couldn’t drive, and then I was hospitalized for two days after staying out for 27 years. I also started suffering from fatigue. This all happened in the space of two weeks.
And after living independently in mainstream society for 20 years I am now in mental health housing again… BUT…I’ve been back at my job for more than a year and a half, I’ve been taking classes again, I have a nice car, I’m getting an apartment at the end of August. I have one or two friends kind of and I am on friendly terms with a lot of people. You can’t give up, you keep going. I’m an old man with little energy but I persevered by getting help and forcing myself to go on. Shambles is a normal state for my life but I still go places and have fun. Look at the stuff I’ve done at my age.
I’m not magic, I face much of the same stuff you and other people on here face. I’m not immune to life’s challenges. I get disrespected, intimidated, cheated, fooled, taken advantage of (and all that happened just two minutes ago, lol. I’m just kidding) But yeah, I am just a human who goes on. I’m not criticizing you or telling you how to feel, I’m just saying us people with few natural gifts can still win. I can, you can. I hope you feel better and I hope things work out for you. @freakonaleash. And me.
