has anyone else lost friends after getting diagnosed? how do you deal with the loneliness and feeling like you’ve lost everyone/everything? :/

      I try to think of it as a test. My real friends are the ones who want to understand and who stick by my side

      Yeah, and it takes a while to get used to it. A lot of people just don’t want to stick around after we get sick, and that’s just how it’s gonna be. I’m still figuring it out too.

      Nobody wants to go at the pace we have to go at unless they're sick also. I just try to accept being alone most of the time is okay. I also enjoy doing things alone sometimes more than with other people because then I can go at my own pace. It's fun to get together with people sometimes as long as it's for very short periods of time and when I'm having a good day. This is our new life.

      I'm still trying to figure that out myself to be honest.
