The reality.

…….. “the tests confirm my diagnosis – its Myeloma”

These words were said to me last week by the Haemotologist. These words are hard to take in, I am still taking them in, trying to rationalise my thoughts, trying to make sense of my new world.

Myeloma is cancer of the the plasma cells. It is incurable. There are treatments, all of which involve chemotherapy, some of which involve stem cell (bone marrow) transplant.

…….. I am now facing the dilemma everyone fears – to have treatment or not, knowing that the inevitable can only be delayed.

Stay positive …. this is what I keep saying to myself. Writing this blog is designed to help me do that. Sympathy is not on the agenda, not wanted. Life is what it is, and we live it in the best way we can. My writing this is for me, if others get something from it then so much the better.
