Cupid’s Advice:

After receiving a life-changing diagnosis, it can be difficult to cope with the horrific news. No matter how tough it can be, it’s important to have a positive outlook. Cupid has some ideas for coping mechanisms:

1. Join a support group: This is something that should be done right away so that you are able to collaborate with people other than your doctor. Connecting with others who are in the same situation as you are can provide a bit of relief.
