Hi, I am new to the forums, unfortunately not new to cancer. I have been warrioring against Multiple Myeloma for over 6 years. I had a second SCT in November but since returning home just before Christmas my family circumstances has changed dramatically with my wife (she has been a rock) decided that she needs to go separate ways. I am in the process of trying to find a rental property but it’s an alien world to me as we have had a mortgage for almost 25 years. There have been times when I have been so unwell she has had to provide care for me, as I say she has been a rock. The world seems like a very scary place at the minute and inside the turmoil is high. I’m not sure what to do??? 

  • Hi  and a very warm welcome to the online community which I hope you'll find is both an informative and supportive place to be.

    I'm sorry to read that you have been dealing with myeloma for 6 years and now have to find a new home for yourself.

    As you know  the online community is divided into different support forums so I'm going to recommend that you join the myeloma forum which is a great place to ask questions, share experiences and get support from others who will understand what it's like living with myeloma.

    To join, just click on the link I've created and, once you've joined, you can start a new post in the same way as you did here and join in with existing conversations by clicking on 'reply'.

    It would be great if you could put something about your diagnosis and treatment to date into your profile as it really helps others when replying to you and also when looking for someone on a similar pathway. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
