I thought it would be neat for those of us who have been diagnosed to list some helpful tips and advice for those who are newly diagnosed or are searching for answers. Please share your own helpful lists!
1.Be proactive with your healthcare
2.Remember you have every right to ask doc about new meds and/or tests
3.Call your doc if something new or frightening develops
4.Keep a list/diary of symptoms
5.Ask for help when needed
6.Accept help when offered
Now the rest of you need to add to all these things!
"Life shouldn't be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving
safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather, to skid in
broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly
shouting...."Wow! What a ride! Thank You Lord!!!"
