I have been reading your book, Lessons I Learned in the Dark, and you say that one should rejoice in their suffering. All I seem to do is get frustrated and depressed. I have the same trials day in and day out–people making fun of me or dismissing me because they see I have a disability.
I feel that I always have to prove myself to everybody, even though I have become a success. As you say in your book, I have become very independent, but I feel isolated. I feel that socially; I have not experienced what others have experienced at my age. I try to pray, but feel I make little progress. Your book makes it seem this whole thing has been a pretty smooth ride for you, with a few bumps in the road, in which you are able to conquer most everything.
Thank you, Wendi
