Check out Reentry phenomena: Part 6
"This is a huge change, because for so long the only way that I could get through the days was to come to a state of acceptance of my limitations. I learned to appreciate the small pleasures – things as minor as reading a good book or watching my favorite TV show - because I truly believed that was all I was ever going to get out of my life. I oscillated between overwhelming depression, because I felt that my life would never be meaningful, and acceptance of the fact that I had to keep living, regardless. Now, as I look forward on a fresh new year, I no longer imagine myself locked away at home, never allowed the chance to chase my dreams."
