Default Advice needed

Hi I'm Ange I'm 27 and just had the results that I have readings of 46 and am awaiting tests to see if the minor symptoms I have been experiencing are signs that's the HD is now active. struggling to process the diagnosis even though I always new there was a 50% chance I would have the disease. Any advice welcome

Hi Ange
so sorry you have a positive result I am sure it must be hard to process the information . Not sure what advice you are looking for maybe a local support group would be helpful ? You don't say if you are married or have any other family support hopefully you can talk to them also .The message board is a good place for info also have a look through if anything specific you are looking for . I am sure others who have been through this will comment also . Its my hubbie who has HD and I found the result hard to deal with he seemed to be ok at the time .

take care
Gabby
