Advice for Newly Diagnosed:

My advice for newly diagnosed: Don’t be afraid to reach out for help. It’s not going to be an easy journey, and having a support system is so important. If you don’t have access to a therapist or psychiatrist, reach out to friends or family when you’re struggling. And never give up! This will only make you stronger.
