It takes some adjusting, and most of us have to do some grieving -- basically let go of how we "used to be" and go thru the 7 stages of grief to get back to a place where we're comfortable again.
1. SHOCK & DENIAL
2. PAIN & GUILT
3. ANGER & BARGAINING
4. "DEPRESSION", REFLECTION, LONELINESS
5. THE UPWARD TURN
6. RECONSTRUCTION & WORKING THROUGH
7. ACCEPTANCE & HOPE
Since you haven't been fully diagnosed or treated yet, it's quite normal to be feeling the way you do. Try to stay in the moment, don't imagine how bad it might be, or worry too much about
how bad it feels now.
Keep pressing on toward a diagnosis and a more complete treatment plan. It can get better - have faith that it will. Do your homework - the basics - good food, good sleep, moderate exercise.
