First off, congratulating on taking the first step to reclaiming your life. Avoiding the issue just lets the disease take over your life.

Your doctor will probably discuss which medicine will work best in you situation. Make sure you have a doctor that you feel comfortable with. That will be the key to getting your 'whole self' back on track. Tell him/her every little thing that you are dealing with...even the embarrassing parts so that they can get the full picture and help you.

Expect plenty of blood work and tests the first few times. Then when you are on medication and your immune system bounces back it will be time for vaccinations.

When your health is better you will start feeling in control again. Ask your doctor about any support programs that are available. They come in handy.

And please come back and let us all know how things go!
