Finding out that you have to live with a chronic illness for the rest of your life is not easy. Depending on your symptoms and other health conditions, there is a lot you’d need to factor in as a patient.
I am in no way telling you that you’ve got to move on right away, but I suggest you take your time and utilize your resources to understand your condition, what treatment options are available for you, and how you plan the process ahead.. Do what you think would be best for you.
My way to cope with the reality was isolating myself and taking it all in and understanding the process. That might not have been the best way but that is how I deal with things.. I try to be alone.. Guess that’s because I am an introvert..
Remember you are not alone. You have a team of healthcare providers – start by talking to them and clarify your doubts. The national MS Society has a lot of information especially for new patients, so sign up for the news letter. Try to connect with other patients and create your warrior squad.
Do not overthink because you are stronger than you think!
