Learning more and opening up

The past few days I've been doing a lot of research on TN and treatments. I'm not the kind of person who likes to go into a doctor's office unprepared. That and I feel like learning more is somewhat comforting, I know what I'm getting myself into by going to see a neurologist again. Also, this way I can show my mom that I am serious about finding a solution this time. One of my floor mates actually could tell something was up lately and she asked me if I was "sick." We had a really great talk last night. She's filled me with so much hope and has really inspired me to be positive. I know now that although some days I truly suffer nothing is every really that bad that I should give up on life like I have in the past. I'm determined to not let this disease rule my life anymore. I will stay in college and I will have a social life as much as possible, and when things are bad and I don't want to get out of bed I will remind myself that it will eventually get better. Finding this place and finally opening up to my family and friends has been really therapeutic for me.

Praying you thru! Good for you to stay involved, but also keep educating yourself this disease. Make people aware of it around you. It can only help.
