Hi folks, I'm new! A big thanks to you all for this great community which has already given me loads of positivity, information and helps since my diagnosis 3 weeks ago today!
I'm a 37 year old female in Ireland, I know I'm considered young for CLL. Luckily I'm stage 0 at present and really hope to remain there as long as possible, especially for my 2 small boys, aged 5 and 2.
I have taken a few weeks off work to process this new situation and hope to use this time to educate myself about CLL, to eat really well and do a little bit of exercise. And maybe even get some rest, something I don't get much of usually!
I was diagnosed while having routine bloods for my under active thyroid, which is checked regularly.
Anyway, a big Irish greeting to you all and thanks in advance for the support and help, I'm very grateful to be part of this community.. Even though none of us would have chosen to be here.
