    Hi there,

    I hope that others who share this journey will soon look in here and talk about their own experience.

    I really encourage you to look into therapy. Anyone whose life has been dramatically impacted by illness has a lot of loss to process and therapy can really help with this. It sounds like you need (and deserve) a lot of support and you're not getting it. Do you know of any support groups in your area?
