Navigating the road, from suspecting symptoms to a diagnosis, along the journey and to the end is full of strife and challenges. Managing this road is often anything but easy. Some have difficult people to deal with and some have it easier. Some people are in denial, some are ready to walk the road together. Grief from day 1 is ever present but many fail to recognize it. Anger from role reversals is common. Expecting the person with the diagnosis to stay the same as they are for a long time is a misconception. Patience is a virtue, although many people run short. How do we navigate this long journey? I am here to help!
