I posted a couple of weeks ago after being newly diagnosed with pbc. Since then I have really been struggling to keep things together. I spend days in tears, hardly sleep and feel like it's such a big act having to smile and chat to people as if everything's great. I seem to be grieving for my life pre diagnosis. Is this normal? I'm only 34 with a young baby and just feel like I'll never be able to fully enjoy life again with what feels like a death sentence hanging over my head. I'm not due to see my specialist (who I didn't find very caring) again for 3 months and don't know how much longer I can go on feeling like life is over. I'm so scared and feel like I'm suffocating. Is life just likely to now become one big struggle?
