Hi Clive.
I'm lucky I don't have family with problems right now, but understand it must be such an added pressure for you.just wanted to say hope things improve on that front. It's hard enough coping with our illness, I find I have to be a bit more selfish than I ever used to be ,and think about my issues, because if I didn't I would be any good to anyone anyway..this site is great to come and vent and really helps. Hope things improve soon for you...

Just want to say i'm sorry you're on a downer.
Family pressures can really affect you, can't they?
I'm glad you're getting some money whilst you're going through the appeals process - that is a good sign.
Really hope you find the companionship you seek soon. :hug1:
