How to deal with a diagnosis, in three easy steps:
Realize the world is not coming to an end and start to find out more about the diagnosis. What does it really mean? Read, talk to people, surf the ‘net.
Do stuff. This could be the stuff of normal life or stuff in a new place that you’ve never been before. Do stuff. Get things done. Have fun.
Repeat 1-3, as needed. Laugh, cry & love throughout.
