I was fortunate, I was diagnosed November 2017 and told to go home enjoy Christmas and they would see.me in the new year. Came home long chat with Dr Google, found the forum, job done. By the time I went back in the new year I had a good amount of info behind me. By the time I went to the Desmond Course in February I was confident enough to tell most of the they were eating the wrong stuff for lunch. This forum saved my life.
