You don't know from one day to the next what to expect. When something happens, you try to reason -- was I stressed? Am I having a reaction to medication? Is the disease progressing? Dr. Laurie explains that you're not alone.
Dr. Laurie encourages us to commit to one relaxing thing every day.
Dear Ms. Meniscus, I'm gay and when I came out a few years ago, it was terrifying and I was so scared of losing all of my friends. But most of them were really cool about it. Things have quieted down, and I even have a boyfriend now. But it's my parents -- I haven't told them yet. And I don't know how to. They're very conservative and, though I was afraid to lose my friends, I'm REALLY afraid to lose my parents. What do I do? -Determined in Dover
