I have written this blog following my diagnosis over a year ago, and as a way of helping me to come to terms with everything that I had been through over the past year. Also I hope that this encourages people to continue to seek medical help when they feel ill, and if they have been told that there is nothing wrong with them, like I experienced, until they get the answers that they need. I believe that nobody knows your body like yourself, and if something does not feel right, and you continue to feel that way then you should persist with seeking medical help until you start to feel better, or get an answer. Initially, during the first few months following diagnosis, I had a negative outlook on things and thought that having this illness was going to change my life to the worse forever. However now I have realised that life does not have to change that much, and most of my negativity was due to a lack of knowledge about my condition, and that life can continue similar to how it was before diagnosis, but a few things just need to be adapted to help you along the way. I now see things more positively and no longer in that dark place that I was in over a year ago.
