I can empathise with how you are feeling but in the one week that i have been diagnosed, what has kept me partially sane is hope and faith that i will get through this. Develop the faith that its better to know your status and be doing something about it than not knowing and be deteriorating gradually. The mixed emotions will always be there i've been told; seek solace in the arm or heart of anyone that accepts you for who you are. Try not to define your self by your status but by the strenghth within and help around you. You will be just fine.


Thank you for your was pretty bad while I was writing that.


Don't let this get to you as it did me

I'm now getting on with my life and have my own restaurant in north Wales and I'm living


Thank you.


Sorry to read you are going through a difficult time! I recommend some counselling that may help. Also contacting your GP who can prescribe some medication to reduce your anxiety.. True friends will still support you, whatever health condition we live with... Good Luck
