I just wanted to say that I completely understand how you feel about
actually "seeing" your health issues have a "name" (getting a diagnosis)....
When I was hospitalized last year, and was discharged - my papers had a list of all 15 or so of my diagnoses. It was validation that YES, something IS wrong w/ me and I'm not losing it
Of course, I'd love to not have a "list" of problems wrong with me.... But, if I have to - it helps knowing what those things are... does that any sense? Maybe I AM losing it...heehee
Anyway, I'm glad you got your diagnosis...... and I like your "lemon/lemonade" analogies :)
(It IS N8, right? And, I'm assuming that is "shorthand" for Nate -- is that right? I have a son named Nathan....and we call him "Nate")...
