I was diagnosed last year and I have been in hospital for just over a year after a bout of Double Pneumonia with added complication of peripheral neuropathy. Which I am slowly getting over with excellent rehab. I am to be discharged in 2 weeks. So having a year to get to now about it etc, I feel well informed but the fear I have is my world of work and travel. My family and close friends know (before I was told may I add) which saved me a job of telling them. I also fear that I will NEVER have a relationship again.
