Two weeks ago, I invited readers to ask me questions or to ask me to write about something in particular. I’ve had a few responses, for which I’m very grateful. Thank you to those who responded for your contributions.

This is just a quick note to let you know I have received them and to apologise for the delay in responding. I am not ignoring you, nor have I forgotten to reply. I will definitely respond to all of them, but it may take some time. I hope you will bear with me.

So watch out for answers to questions such as “the correct thing to say to someone with cancer”; readjustments after treatment; living with uncertainty; and surrender and relief.

If anyone else would like to ask me any other questions or would like me to write about how I deal with a specific aspect of living with myeloma, you can find the form on the Living with Questions page in the top menu.

I am not any kind of expert, except about my own experience (and even then, not always), so I can’t/won’t attempt to answer medical queries about myeloma. There are plenty of good sites out there with that sort of information: please see the links on the right. But I will gladly write about how I feel and think about anything to do with my experience of living with myeloma.

All requests are sent to me from WordPress by confidential email, so no other readers will see what you write. There may be a wait, but I will respond. Honestly! ;-)


liebster-blog-awardThree weeks ago, one of my blogmates, who writes Winning with Bipolar, nominated me for an award called the Liebster Blog Award. It’s a blogger to blogger award, a bit like a chain letter (which I’ve never been a fan of), but in a good way – helping to publicise lesser known blogs.

I want to accept and I will… properly! There are several requirements of acceptance, the first of which is to thank the blogger who nominated me, which I have already done, and to acknowledge him here, so thanks JM! I’m tickled pink! I do hope some of you will visit his blog.

However, the other requirements of acceptance are not so simple, so again I apologise for not responding sooner. This will take a little time, but it will happen!
