Thanks a lot. You're right, now that I found this website, I kind of regret quitting my job. Had I come accross here earlier, I wouldn't have left. It's really hard to find a job these days especially with the current economic uncertainties. I've been moving from one job to another after a year more or less because of this problem and now I think the employer are getting discouraged and hesitant to hire me.
Nice to know that your family are supportive of you. You could afford to be out of work for 4 years as long as your dad was earning. I couldn't hence I always got back to the workplace after 3-6 months. If I'd be given another chance, I wouldn't leave again. At least when I am earning, I have the money to spend for the meds.
One thing that's very depressing is not having friends with whom you can open up about this. And stumbling upon this forum makes me feel like I could have friends, confidants, and not just one but many :)
