Hi. I’ve been thinking about this for a while now… I was elated and relieved when I received my diagnosis after 51 years of symptoms. However, now that I am looking back over the last 3-4 months, I also experienced deep #grief. I have done everything I can to support myself emotionally as I process all the #feelings that have come up, and this has helped tremendously. (I/E - prayer, AFT, rest, talking with dear friends who understand, TZC, etc.) Finally, just 2 weeks ago, I woke up feeling more stable and strong emotionally. Although I am sure there will continue to be ups and downs, I am so grateful to have made it this far! I am sure that I am not the only one to have experienced this process. If you are feeling, or have felt, this grief after diagnosis, I would love to hear what is helping/has helped you, as a resource for all of us. Thank you for all your encouragement over the past few months!
