Diagnosis and Stages of Grief
Can you believe after all this time, after all the medical appointments, after all the bloodwork, and other medical tests you FINALLY have a diagnosis? Now what? Maybe you find yourself going through the stages of grief? Grief isn't just for death, it's for the loss of anything we now find hard to face. After your diagnosis, you may find the stages of grief start setting in. For some it may be a long journey to acceptance, for others, it comes easier. Either way, it's something most of us that are patients or caregivers to patients experience.
