Build a support network: "An important part of the journey is allowing yourself to get both help and support from others. This has been vital to me. Acceptance is not about giving up but recognising that you may need to do things differently than you have done in the past."
It's not an excuse: "One thing I was worried about with going public with my disease was people's perception of me changing. As mentioned previously, I don't want to appear weak or incapable of doing things. I don't want people to think I am using my disease as an excuse for not meeting up, or pulling out of a gym session, or not getting into work for the day."
Vitamins and supplements: "One of the symptoms I have struggled to adjust to the most is the dizziness. I now take Bioglan Women's Multi-Vitamins on a daily basis; they have given me a huge sense of relief."
