Hi Kimsoon,

We all go through this type of feeling and just have to find out how to end it. I have been injured 44 years and oft times feel the same as you are describing. About a year ago, I started volunteering with the National Park Service. I like talking to people, especially people from other countries. Almost daily I meet people from all over the world. Last week I was with a group from Turkey and spent about an hour with them. I often get cards from visitors thanking me for spending so much times with them. The monetary value is worthless but the feeling of gratitude and self image is worth the time.

I used to just get drunk and the next day feel horrible. Then I knew I had to get better!

Good luck and keep your head up.
