I have read the posts of what others have been through and I feel like a triple AAA little-leaguer who hopes not to make the major leagues! I can only hope and pray they caught my very aggressive pca variant early enough. We shall see, but in the meantime I have been presented one more challenge as I threw caution in the wind six years ago and engaged in a startup business. This business required a great deal of up-front work to build a viable product (it's software), and took far longer than expected.
Fast forward to a few months ago, when I was diagnosed with pca and at the same time was informed by my business partner he was throwing in the towel so I was on my own. So it is likely I am merging with another company where I am bringing this very good but unfinished product into another startup.
So yes, I am dealing with T3a, intraductal Pca and am working for a startup that will require long hours of work. Just what I had always imagined when I turned 60!
This should be interesting. Very stressful but interestingly the need for me to make something happen for my family has diverted some of the stress from pca to fda (financial disaster avoidance!).
Thought I'd share because I am sure many others have had to face the dual issue of health and finances. And I am about to find out if I can suck it up and deal with this. Certainly will do my best, and am ready for the fight!
I feel somewhat embarrassed bringing this up knowing what others are facing, but it is nevertheless an interesting situation, and each of us have our unique story. This is mine.
