What sorta emotions did you have upon receiving any of your diagnosesis?
Anxiety (Including GAD)
Definitely denial for some of them, and confusion for others
It depended on the diagnosis. For anxiety/depression, I was young enough where I wasn't exposed to the stigma right away so it was kinda like "oh, ok." Skin issues were more "UGH what is this."
BMI/Overweight stuff is always tough for me. The BMI scale is already not reliable and reasonable, but I really don't need to get the printouts of "how to lose weight" every time I go to the doctor...I want to, obviously, but I wish it was more of a focus on "you're healthy, that's all that matters."
A huge sense of grief.
Relief. I thought it was much worse but the diagnosis was thought to be much worse than what it actually is.
