I have not experienced what you are dealing with (nothing quite that direct) but as northernflicker stated we do have some understanding. Some more and some a little less. I did want to write something after your first post but other than heart felt sympathy I had nothing concrete that I could suggest.

Writing your thoughts is a good idea. Write them all. You may be selective on what you post (if any) but I think that it will help writing what you feel and think.
