I was diagnosed 6 years ago. I hate it. I want my life back. However, in the event I do actually have a life, I am learning to deal with it post diagnosis. I have found that this actually takes several turns - you think you're ok and then you have a blip. But hey, I can walk, talk, feel the sun, rain wind, love and live. You will get lots of info and support here. I'm a bit down and frustrated today so this post maybe a little devoid of upbeat emotion, sorry!
