We all have waiting times
I love your phrase, "know my enemy." So important, @1nan.
To answer your question in the following post I would say that the one thing that makes it possible to move from fear to more helpful thinking would be educating myself about the disorder(s).
The more I learn about a health problem, the more control I feel. It helps me to talk with doctors with a bit more confidence and clarity and to enter into the treatment plan more fully.
Thanks for your comments!

@hopeful33250 Teresa, thank you for the kind comments. I believe you named the one thing that is key for everyone. That is educating ourselves. And I have seen you helping members find their way in doing exactly that. No matter how else we navigate through our worst nightmares we can’t fight what we can’t see. You are a good example and many benefit from your guidance. If you think of a way we can all do that better, please share. Nancy
