  • Hello Tricia nice to meet you but wish it was in different circumstances. You've found a good group of people here and your in the right place to have a rant, a cry, a chat even a laugh Smiley All I'll say is take one day at a time, if you need to cry then cry, it takes a while to except our diagnosis.  Keep posting and you'll find plenty of support. Sending hugs xx

  • Good morning Tricia and welcome to the group. We're a very friendly, supportive bunch here and just to pick up on what you say, thanking us letting you join. It's confusing when you have to click on a button to apply to join us. We have no say on that, I think it may be the moderators deciding if you're incurable or not because it's only incurables as members in here. 

    I was diagnosed with incurable bone marrow cancer in March 2015 and I'm still here 8 years later almost. I wasn't given a prognosis, my wife asked the haemotologist and he said different people go down at different rates. Others have been given 9 months a few years ago or less maybe and they're still here because trials become available for them, new drugs become available and their lifespan dramatically increases. We say that these people are well past their sell by date! 

    I hope you'll be happy here and you can ask questions or answer some in time when you have your feet well under the table Slight smile. Hopefully speak to you again soon Tricia.

    Love life and family.

  • Good morning to you Tvman. I am so sorry to read your diagnosis, yet oddly uplifting to read that you are still here 8 years later. it gives hope to people.
