Hi, I'm having a little trouble finding a support group where I fit in! It seems when I hit 50 I just sorta fell apart and have so many bad things going on in my life I'm totally lost. I picked this group because probably the worst has been the loss of sight in one eye four months ago. I'm having a really hard time accepting it. I'm an artist so trying to cope with one eye has really been difficult. The loss was caused in surgery from an antibiotic injected into my eye for a bad infection (psuedomonas) which caused retinal toxicity. It wasn't supposed to happen and even my eye surgeon was shocked that it did. As I'm grieving this loss, a month ago I had to have a very unexpected hysterectomy (total) that's had me pretty depressed and now I'm having severe dizziness/nausea that no one can explain. My husband and I are both self employed and have no health insurance so have found ourselves $30,000 in debt from medical expenses from all my ailments. We've worked for 30 years trying to build our business only to worry that health problems will take it all away. I've talked to my clergy, a therapist, read every book I can find on dealing with grief and learning to accept, I'm on anti-depressants. Nothing is helping. Anybody got any advice? Life sucks.
