Hi Kelly, sorry for your news. As you can see, all of us here are living with this disease. It’s hard at first. There’s alot to reasearch. This is a great place for support, so I encourage you to take advantage of it. Read my post about my depression last night. I understand exactly how you feel. Unfortunately, this can be a real lesson in “vanity”. weight gain and hair loss are pretty hard to take. Good luck and keep in touch here.
