It can be both devastating and a relief to receive a diagnosis. It’s validating to finally know what’s been ailing you. It’s empowering to know what you can do to feel better. At the same time, a diagnosis changes a life. It changes the way you view your present and future self.
Give yourself time to accept a diagnosis. Let yourself grieve for the who you thought you were and will be. Schedule time with a compassionate friend or therapist. Do what you need to do to nurture yourself and you will gain the energy to take action and begin the process of healing.
