A sunny day in the south

Good day everyone .

The sun is shining in the south which is a bonus after yesterday with all the rain .Just to say what ever you are doing enjoy.

Have been trying to put a photo on the site but it keeps coming out upside down .(a bit like me I'm afraid )

Good day to you too, PE1234. I'm glad the sun is shining where you are.

Don't give up re posting a photo. It's great to see people's photos. Never mind if it's upsidedown.. We can turn our phones and tablets over (or twist our necks round if on desktop computers like me) :-)

Hope you have a happy sunny day,

Paula

PE1234, are you using an Apple device? You'll be pleased to know that you are not alone. In fact, another admin just posted today, asking HU, could they add a button for posters to rotate their photos, because it's a common problem in his community.

Besides, that means your photo will be the only one that I won't have to turn upside down :)

(Seriously, you may be able to find a graphics program on the device you are using to access this site. Just invert your photo and save it before posting it and it should display correctly.)

I don't even know how to add a photo. Is there a help section I'm Missing?

Hi Neil

Yes it is an apple I pad .

I'm not that clever with it but I will have ago .(as they say ) If not I will just have to move to Oz .

Where in Australia do you live ? My cousin and his family like many from England lives there .He lives in Brisbane.At the moment he is acting in the new Johny Dep. film .Lucky devil .

My best friend whom he married passed away last year with ovarian cancer and it's good to see he has managed to pick up the pieces and get on with his life ,with his acting and playing bowls .

Don't know if you play bowls but he has manufactured Chalkies to use with bowls .Another great interest of his .Dont know why I'm telling you all this but it just makes a change from my bleeting on about all my symptoms .

Have a good day what ever time it is there .

It is 4:15PM and I really should be enjoying a beautiful sunny late autumn day in South Australia.

I think I prefer 10 pin bowling to lawn bowls, but I have had a few games of lawn bowls with some mates in a Leukaemia Foundation men's group. I only forgot which way the bias should be once, but that was embarrasing enough as my ball shot across into the adjoining lane :(

Welcome Paulamarie. You are not alone in being scared after being given a diagnosis of CLL/SLL, with many here remembering the distress associated with those early days. Have you read any of the posts in our pinned post section? There are a few there from some of our members that have recounted very well what many of us feel, but have trouble putting into words. There are also plenty of posts providing useful information to those newly diagnosed:

We've also conducted a few polls - you'll find that you are far from alone in your concerns after viewing these:

Don't forget to check out the wealth of useful information on our parent website: cllsupport.org.uk

Finally, why not introduce yourself in a new post? I'm certain that you'll find others that can help you avoid the pitfalls of living with CLL and do much to allay your fears.

Hi Paulamarie

This site we are on is brilliant.the folks on it are so helpful and you really don't feel so alone .

I was diagnosed at Easter .i suddenly had to keep stopping when I was walking my blood pressure dropped so low and I couldn't get my breath .I honestly thought I was having a heart attack ,so went to a and e after tests had four transfusions and was told I had to have treatment strait away .

I know what you mean about feeling scared .I was petrified and some days I do have panick attacks ,so you have all my sympathy

I trust my oncholagist completely .

Where in the south are you ?

Yesterday here was a lovely day .The sun shone all day .

Keep well Paulamarie and remember You are not alone .
