lately ive been happy and serene acceptance of an illness that has been diagnosed does anyone else believe that theyre might be a state of shock/denial when first given a diagnosis then the need to insanely research it and then finally accept............ thats whats been going on with me the last few months merry xmas! diddy:)

Yes - these things follow a pattern - starting in denial & ending in acceptance.

http://changingminds.org/disciplines/change_management/kubler_ross/kubler_ross.htm

Shock stage: Initial paralysis at hearing the bad news.

Denial stage: Trying to avoid the inevitable.

Anger stage: Frustrated outpouring of bottled-up emotion.

Bargaining stage: Seeking in vain for a way out.

Depression stage: Final realization of the inevitable.

Testing stage: Seeking realistic solutions.

Acceptance stage: Finally finding the way forward.
