I actually found my diagnosis to be a massive relief! I already “knew” there was something wrong. Why hide from that fact? If your heart feels wrong, you go see your doctor about it no? If you look at your hand, and it looks ‘wrong’, you go see your doctor about it right? Then why not see someone about something ‘wrong’ (and I use this in juxtaposition) with the ol’ noodle? You don’t have to keep banging your head against a brick wall to know it hurts.
The main thing is, you have support and love. Lots of it. Use it. Do your research and educate yourself. There is nothing more powerful than a knowledgeable mind that acts upon that knowledge.
