Hello... First, thanks to all of you for this site. I have learned a lot and it is good to know that I am not alone. Apparently, this disease is much more common than I ever knew! My five-year old son was diagnosed a couple of months ago and he is a real trooper. No problems at all with checks or shots. My husband is a big help. My only problem is me...I can't stop crying (although I try not to cry in front of him and his 9-year-old sister). I think and worry about him constantly while he is at school, etc. Can you tell me how long it took for you to come to terms with the diagnosis and what you did to help yourself not cry and worry all the time? I plan to ask my endo about support groups at our follow-up visit but I really need some tips to help me personally and continuously so this disease does not get the best of me and my family!
