|We learned from Therese:
*When faced with any disease, especially when young, it is ok to be clear with your identity and not hide your disease.
*A good way of dealing with friends who unfriend you during your trying times is to believe, “If you can’t take me at my worst, then you don’t get me at my best”.
*Love can get you through difficult times. Support one another when needed!
*Sometimes when dealing with the unknown, you have to get on with your life despite the constant “waiting” in the background.Support the show
