There are enough delightful characters on this forum, and most of you know me quite well, for me to think that this post won't be taken as an attention-seeking cry for sympathy, so I want to ask you what you do (or what you would do, should you be lucky enough to have not experienced this) if you were in great emotional and physical pain that you knew was here to stay.
I'm extremely ill at the moment. I'm supposed to be going back to university in two weeks (after 15 months away for ill health) and, though I'll get all the 'benefits' of being a disabled student, I don't think I will manage because my body is in such bad shape. My doctors are pretty ****ing useless - there are pills I really, really, really need, but which I don't have because they can't do their damn paperwork on time. So, as it stands, I'm at home all day every day, the oddball of the family; I don't have many friends at all - none round here; and my partner is a long, long way away, so I'm depressed, lonely, and suffering.
