Learning everything you can about your condition can make it easier for you to deal with. And receiving support from other people who have shared a similar experience can help you heal.
With this in mind, you might consider looking for resources in your community. You may be able to talk with others about a doctor, or a treatment. Allow yourself to benefit from sharing a similar experience, be reassured by the information you can learn, and receive support from other people in your community.
