It sure sounds from your email that maybe you need to step back and reassess your priorities and everything that's going on in your life. What's important, first of all, to you. Yes, there's the medical stuff, and learning to accept the <expletive deleted> hand you've been dealt. But what else makes you happy?

It also sounds like you feel that people are making a lot of demands on you - which of those people are really important to you, and which of those "demands" really matter. Only you can answer that. Once you know the answer, tell everyone else "No."

It'll take awhile, but life really will start to make sense again. But only if you take good care of yourself (physically, spiritually, emotionally, and relationship-wise).

Keep us posted how things go.
