You have just visited your doctor, he has referred you to a specialist, and you will soon be diagnosed with a medical condition which will change your life forever.
Are you going to be prepared for this?
I’m sorry to tell you but, no you’re not prepared. But you will get through it over time. I’m not going to lie to you. It will be hard, and will take a significant amount of time and effort. Just keep taking small steps in the right direction and it will get better.
This is what type of advice I would have liked to have heard, from future me or anybody, when I was leaving the doctor that significant day. Even if I wasn’t ready to listen, if I just had somebody tell me this advice, it would have been noted, and one day down the road I would have remembered it.
I plan to open up to my journey I have been traveling on for almost 20 years, what I was worried about and what I was afraid to travel on for too long; but have started to embrace and be more comfortable to travel this journey.
