Just heard the specialists are not going to treat my aneurysm or at least not straight away. The only way I can cope is to change my attitude. Previously I couldn't stop crying every time I thought about my diagnosis and the potential for death or brain damage. Now I tell myself to accept the situation, trust the experts judgement and get on and enjoy life rather than wasting time worrying about something outside my control. What I can control is my attitude to life and it feels good to manage that. Though i still have my moments which i allow myself. Posts on here have helped me so much along with a sign I saw outside a coffee shop today 'one day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching '.
Would love to hear from others who have been told they're not having treatment as an initial approach and how they're coping.
