I just found out very recently, though it isn't a sure thing. It's a good possiblity that I have a mild form, I have not recived and official diagnosis. Is there any advice anyone can offer me? Should I try to get an offical diagnosis? Would it make things easier or harder for me? I'd like to hear what everyone has to say.

I think it entirely depends on how much you need to know one way or the other, and how much you value a professional opinion. There are upsides and downsides to finding out.

My advice is that if you are getting along fine with life and you can sleep at night without knowing whether you have it, I wouldn't spend the time or money trying to get a professional opinion. But, to each their own.
