    Hi Lauren!

    Welcome to the community :star: Going through diagnosis can be stressful, especially if they're discussing lots of different things, so it's completely understandable if you're feeling a bit confused at the moment <3 hopefully, your team will give you some more clarity over things soon, and can answer any questions you might have. It can be overwhelming, so remember to take your time to process things if you feel overwhelmed by everything <3

    We're a friendly bunch on here and happy to share advice or just listen. Don't be nervous if you ever need to talk, ask a question, or just rant - we're your people :blush:

    Hey Lauren! Welcome
    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley
