Receiving a diagnosis for a neurological condition can bring up many strong emotions. For some people it will be a relief after many years of exploration, for some people it will be overwhelming and a catalyst for anxiety. It is important to remember that whatever you are feeling at this time, this is normal.
It may take you a while to come to terms with the idea of living with a neurological condition. This time spent learning more about your condition can bring personal power. It can be very important to share the emotional load with those you trust. This may be your close circle or it may be one of our Counsellors at MSWA.
