Tell Us: What Was Diagnosis Day Like for You?

Denise
During our caregiving experience, we have days that become something like life markers for us. For instance, we remember the day that our career received a diagnosis for the first time. Diagnosis day becomes pivotal as it becomes the defining mark separating life before caregiving and our life after caregiving begins.

A diagnosis day can hold many emotions. It also can provide insights into how the health care system works with and sometimes against us. It also can change the dynamics in our family and in our relationships.

For you, what was diagnosis day like? Who supported you? How did you support your caree? What did you do after you received the news? How did you share the news about the diagnosis? In our comments section, below, please share your experiences on Diagnosis Day.
