I was diagnosed 2 half years ago found out on my mums birthday 3 weeks after she passed away suddenly, thought my life had ended.. and was in complete turmoil for months. Crying all of a sudden in street at work at home and thought about suicide, what stopped me was a friend committed suicide a year before and I saw the devastation it left to his partner family and friends, and I couldn't put people thro that. It made me stronger and determined to make the most of what I have. I've been on meds for year now after getting shingles and pneumonia. Have yet to meet a partner, but have some good friends and couple of family members that know. I do get down sometimes but am thankful for things, have booked couple of holidays, this thing is not going to rule my life. Clinic staff have been great, on the few times I see them due for 6 monthly check soon. Live life and be grateful. M
