As someone who went through this or made this decision after a successful career of 30 years within the same industry and growing within that industry, this was without a doubt the most painful and difficult decision I've ever had to make since my diagnosis 15 years ago.

This is that point in time whereby your life changes and you have to learn to accept that as you replace your previous life with new challenges and expectations. You can do it!
