I should have also mentioned that attending a series of support group meetings was very beneficial. Iconvinced a friend 10 years younger than i to attemd as well. He had been diagnosed just after his daughter was, but had not sought any treatment. The support group was an inspiration to both of us. That all these people most half my age or less had the same problems that we had, lived the same nightmare, and needed the same supports was an eyeopener. I strongly recommend it if you havent already attended.
