Today we are creating a resources page for those newly diagnosed. I already have a link at the top of my blog with a list of those that I have found to be the most helpful to me. I don't know if that counts, so I will list a few of them here as well.
Next comes advocating for yourself, I mean really if you don't do it who will? Go into it with a good attitude, be willing to learn all you can from the proper resources. When you go to your doctors make sure you are being listened to. Follow their orders, (blood tests, medication.) If you don't feel like your doctor is a good fit, find a new one. I had one, when I asked for a referral tell me I didn't need one, he knew what he was doing. I went, he didn't know what he was doing.
Here's few of the sites I have found helpful to me, and a couple to help you self advocate. Click on the links on my page for more.
