Reply To: not so much a question as reaching out.
Synthia, You are so young to be stricken with this. It is tough. I am just adjusting finding out I have it. I have a mantra. It isn’t what happens to you that is important, it’s how you react to it. At this point, my reaction is one of the few things I have control over. And I am used to having a lot more control!! This seems to me like a huge test! It does suck. You, no one, deserves it. Just know that you aren’t alone in this and do everything you can to fight it. I can’t offer much advice as I am so new to it all. But, remember you aren’t alone. I actually had a conversation with a relative’s psychologist on another matter. When I mentioned to her what I am going through, she suggested I make an appointment. I told her I would think about it. It won’t help my CIDP, but it could help me cope. If I get to that point, I just might call her. There is no shame, only strength, in asking for help. Ev
