Hi all, I'm new art this and don't know where to start,  so please bare with me.  I was told in December that I have 6 months left,  give or take a bit.  I still don't know how to feel. It's as if this isn't really happening to me. Any ideas or thoughts would be very appreciated.

Hi  and welcome to the Online Community, although I am sorry to see you finding us and so sorry to hear your news - this must have been such a shock, I think talking with people who are on the same journey as you will help you a lot. As these folks do understand.

So can I direct you to this link to our very supportive Living with incurable cancer - incurable patients only group as this will open up your concerns to a wider audience who know exactly what you are going through at the moment.

Just follow the link I have created then hit the ‘Join This Group’ tab just under the main group name, then go to the 'Start a Discussion' tab and set up your very own Discussion and introduce yourself to the group and ask your questions.

You may find our various Macmillan Support Line Services to be helpful - call them on 0808 808 00 00 This free service covers Emotional Support, Practical Information. Clinical Information, Financial Support and Work Guidance mostly open 8.00 to 8.00 but check the link.

All the very best.
