It seems like I am running into lots of postings by newcomers to DC who just got diagnosed. Just an idea here, but I am wondering if some of you who have been striving-surviving-thriving would want to give a few words of advice and support.
So here goes: Thinking back to when you first received your diagnosis, what are the five (more or less) things that you wish someone had said to you, words of advice, any don't do's, any words of support that stuck with you.
Practical, emotional, spiritual.
And… anything that someone said to you that wasn't so helpful.
I am hoping that we can we can share some words that might help not only newly-diagnosed friends to get prepared for the road ahead, but also give a boost to those who are further ahead.
I am looking forward to hearing what anything you have to share. Thanks!
