What a group to be able to join! As I am sure we all feel, I NEVER expected this to be an option.
I am finding this all a bit tough going at the moment. My head is full of doom, which contradicts my desire to beat the odds! I am not following a special diet, I have days where energy levels are on the floor. I want to get out and live life, but not sure how the heck I do that!
Just typed out my 'bio'. Flipping 'eck, this is the weirdest phase of life I've ever had!
I didn't realise this group existed. I love my cancer specific group, but this is soooooo much better for my sanity, we are all in the same boat just different compartments.
Thank you for typing your posts, I have not felt relatable and part of the world for months!

I think it was GBear that suggested the group though, I can't take credit. Remember that she mentioned about the Macmillan phone lines if you need to talk to someone. This is the link https://www.macmillan.org.uk/about-us/contact-us

Hi there! I'm pleased to hear you feel at home here. Totally relate to telling the teens.
A warm welcome JB. I too have endometrial cancer. My journey has been a bit different, but if you have a read you'll see where I'm at now. All good wishes and hugs from Rainie x
Hello JB, a very warm welcome to you. You have found the right place for humour, understanding, no need for explanations - people who ‘get it’, recommendations on books , and no-filtered honesty about our feelings and emotions too. I wish you all the very best and look forward to getting to know you. xxxxxxxxxxx
hI JB2022 welcome to the group, but so sorry you find yourself here. I was diagnosed with endometrial sarcoma at the age of 39, trying to make the medical professions understand there was a problem was a fight in itself. Constantly being told you are too young, its just your hormones......
Sorry you are finding it tough at the moment. I hope this group helps, we all do understand how you feel, that's for sure x
