I am thinking for the last 6 years whether I should spend some time writing about what happened to me since November 2009. Most of my colleagues of misfortune tend to keep it for them and avoid the “C” word but I usually openly discuss about it and even am sarcastic but deep inside… So… you can read these chapters…
I have reached the decision that it might help some others who are going through the same journey and could at different stages of this illness and also it will be good for me to reflect on my experience! I see so many people being hit by this directly or indirectly as I talk about it…
Hopefully you’ll understand that this no recipe for success or maximising opportunity to go through Acute Myeloid Leukaemia but may provide some insight… It will all be memory based as I did not have the reflex to take notes (sure you understand why!).
I also would like to thank in this humble blog my family and the hospital staff for their support! They all have been on my side day after day and still are on daily basis to support me. I realise the family has been through a rough patch and this impacted them a lot… They will never realise how thankful I am!!!
The intent is to develop chapters detailing chronologically what happened and to avoid too much jargon as I indeed learned a lot, to read the chapters, please select the posts with the AML category. I’ll do my best to keep the chapters short and dynamic… I have almost three years to describe but in no way I want to make this a drama or a summer story! Let me know if you have questions or opportunity for improvements… All constructive criticisms are welcome. I will keep updating and amending published chapters as I may collect new information as I was not conscious during the whole time.
