I hope you don't mind a post about feeling scared.
I was diagnosed in December last year and started Imatinib about 7 weeks ago. Up to now, I have felt fine. Not many side effects etc. But I think the diagnosis has just hit me. I feel overwhelmed by it. I'm scared and feeling so shaky. Did anyone else go through this?
My Dr is good - he tells me that CML can be relatively well controlled but it will almost certainly stay with me for the rest of my life - which I now find terrifying.
I'm sorry for the meaningless rant but this feeling started yesterday and I cannot shake it off.
Would be grateful for any reassurance right now :-(
