Ups n downs


Was diagnosed in late December, feeling great physically but having trouble mentally. I have gleason 9 and was told last Monday that it's stage 4. I just turned 40 and I'm in prime of my life, finally got  to the place in life I've worked so hard for. Now I'm depressed and just plain scared today, but tmrw will be better, I hope. Gotta learn to just except it and move on. My heart and best wishes for each and everyone of you.

    I'm sorry for your situation

    You may wish to join a support group in your area where you can meet and talk face to face with other men......USTOO is an international organization that sponsors local support groups worldwide. Go to their site......

    You may wish to consider professional intervention.

    My thoughts are with you. I wish you the best.
