Hi everyone, I was just diagnosised on 2/7/2009. It has been a busy last 3 weeks trying to find out why my WBC's were soo high and I wasn't sick. This has devistated my life right now. The emotional aspect is horrible. I am soooo. worried about the treatments, side effects, outcome, and MY LIFE right now. I am a mother of two children and a registered nurse in Labor and delivery. I keep reading information on this disease and treatments but keep getting more worried and sad. Everyone keeps telling me everything will be fine and your strong but right now I don't feel strong. All I do is cry in disappointment and panic. I am terrified that everything I see says 6 year survival and I am 26 years old and need about 56 years of survival! Any words of encouragement and support you all can give me will help because I feel all alone. I am about to start Gleevc today and I am scared of the side effects and my abilities to work on the floor as a nurse. Thanks everyone.
