Let's beat cancer sooner

I am riding an emotional rollercoaster so I thought that this would be the right place to admit it. 

I was diagnosed with NHL in march & can't have chemo because of cirrhosis. My health has been bad for years & I have pain when sitting so since diagnosis I have spent much of my time lying in bed in my denial bubble reading my kindle. Last saturday I joined this forum & my denial bubble burst. Emotions all over the place. I have just spoken to a very nice lady at Macmillan who after having a long chat advised me to get my GP to request a visit from a Macmillan nurse. Feeling better for reaching out

Good morning Seabird,

I am not surprised your emotions are all over the place. Having been a member of this forum for about 4 1/2 years I know it can be daunting making your first post. I know I was concerned I might say the wrong thing. I was so pleased to get a reply and have never regreted joining this great forum.

I wish you all the best and anytime you need to talk just post on here, Brian.
