Scott the exact opposite as if I'd stayed home and done nothing I would have always felt I'd done nothing to improve myself or give to society, be able to support myself and my children, move to another state with them buy a big house, boat, pool in back yard all paid for by me. I was fine off benzos for a long time until menopause, lymes disease all found at the same time. I was 50 or so by then. Oh the hasimotos thyroidistis same time period. As my then current pdoc said too much going on now. Why not get out of nursing. Did biggest mistake of my life as if I'd stayed in and fought would have my self reliance. And as I worked each day I became stronger. Was my physical body that broke down. Now 65 but can see what I did and know I accomplished something worth while. Otherwise what an icky life I would have had as was soooo happy when working. Darn getting old and body systems breaking down including my back. Phillipa hope it's clearer now. Reduced to working ebay not my cup of tea. But it keeps my mind and creativity flowing at least.
