A little background. I have 4 children and 4 grandchildren. I have had the same job for 13 years. I got diagnosed with a dvt in August after being misdiagnosed and treated like I was only looking for pain meds. I went from working and being active to not being able to walk in a span of 6 weeks. In the time since my kids. 3 adult and 1 teenaged have stopped talking to me. I have lost my job and I have been living off my savings which is running out. I just feel like what's the point of living anymore? I still can't work and after 13 years of loyalty I got kicked to the curb. My adult kids basically stopped caring when I couldn't babysit or let them borrow money anymore. And my teenager went to live with his dad because I didn't have extra money to give him constantly. They all could really care less. I feel so alone and helpless and just not worth anything.

@Dvtqueen I'm sorry you're going through all of that. I know not being taking seriously by doctors and the healthcare system is awful, but also being essentially abandoned by your loved ones must be even more difficult for you. Have you told you kids how you feel and explained what you're going through?
