See below: Need more info about the condition, but depending on the limitations that your condition caused, you might want to work on the loss of these things. Create small achievable goals that will help you manage your condition. It would be beneficial to contact a psychologist specializing in treating people with medical conditions to help you guide through the process of adjusting to the new lifestyle.
