Having a chronic disease is hard, no doubt about it. (I have one as well, Psoriatic Arthritis, which has wrecked my joints and messed with my mind.) Having three is more than I can imagine. Your doctor's suggestion of seeking the help of a psychologist ( or maybe even a psychiatrist or a psychiatric social worker) is an excellent one. It's not only about accepting the diseases, but also about adjusting expectations, realigning relationships, and re-framing the future. That's a lot of work to take onboard and do by yourself. You can do it, but I think it will be easier if you get yourself a coach.

We're here to support you, but we're not professionals. If I were you (which I am not!) I'd seriously consider your doctor's recommendation. This whole situation is hard enough, without trying to dig yourself out all by yourself.

Warmest wishes for peace and progress, Kraai
