Hi everyone- Another newbie here. I was diagnosed with CIDP about 2 months ago, but, have had it for 2 years. I realize I’m lucky it only took 2 years for a diagnosis. Even though the Mayo worked on it, it was my GP with the help of other doctors that caught it. I am just trying to come to grips with living with it. Its frustrating, being mom of 4, a farm wife, and a crew chief, and now, going back to school.
How long does it take you all to accept it, and learn to (forgive the word…) manage it? Also, does your CIDP seem to be progressing fast or slow?
