Once you are deemed "disabled", you will probably find that there will be some good days, some bad days, and some really bad days. Due to whatever stopped you from working, there's bound to be a feeling of being unproductive,incapable,and insufficiency.
There may be jealousy by a spouse that feels that you are "lucky" to be home all the time while they have to go to work every day. After a while, even your kids may start to show signs of disrespect, being incapable of understanding your plight, and wondering why "all their friends" have things that you can no longer afford.
These are all things that counseling may help get you through. If you can't find an understanding psychologist, then you may have to talk to yourself.
Remember to make notes to yourself to count your blessings, even if you have to tape a note to your bathroom mirror.
