With all health conditions requiring extra care and attention, patients and their caregivers face unexpected problems, constant worries and having to cope with sadness. No matter the cause, all patients and caregivers could use the support of others with similar conditions. Find out what is to be expected. Learn how others have coped and vent to others who truly understand. The best way to understand your condition and how to handle it is to EDUCATE yourself by learning from others.
