Where To Turn?
A person gets slammed with a diagnosis of PH, probably after months or even years of trying to figure out what is wrong with their body. What in the world do they do now?? Who do they talk to about it? Family and friends may try to understand, or may not even be supportive. Finding other people who also live with PH can help a "newbie" in so many ways. Many years ago, before the internet changed the world, it was rather hard meeting people with PH. Today, the world wide web can bring people together in chat rooms, message boards, and social networking sites.Websites, such as the PHA and PH Central, can also provide information on how to get in touch with a PHer in person, through support groups. A newly diagnosed PH patient does not have to feel so alone with their disease!
