    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:
