    Hi @Arty1 and welcome to the community! It can be difficult coming to terms with a diagnosis, there is no time limit with regards to acceptance, it can be a long and bumpy road and varies for each person.

    Take each day as it comes and remember to pace yourself. All of us can relate to how you feel, so never feel like you're alone with this :)

    Hi @Arty1 - welcome to the community, & thank you for joining. I also can relate, tho in my own case I just gradually got worse due to the genetic disorder I have. Perhaps it's easier for me because of this, & Ami understands more about coming to terms with a diagnosis & the impact it can have on you. As mentioned, pacing is really important & does help. As does chatting here too. :)
