When you go to the Doctors, keep in mind your there to find out what is wrong and the Doctor is working for you and with you. Take deep breaths and write down your notes about how you have been feeling and questions you have.
Welcome to A/P. What a lot has happened to you! I would be quivering under the kitchen table. Congratulations on taking such positive steps and I'm so glad you have joined us here. You are in good company.
Yes! Put away that medical book/stop googling symptoms. It's far better to find a professional you can trust than to try and diagnose yourself. I am so much happier now I don't have a new disorder everyday, I was a mad self-diagnoser! Eeep.
I look forward to getting to know you better, welcome again,
