As of 2013 I know about my CLL, chemo- and antibodytherapie started about one year ago, but didn't work because of P53 deletion. As of 2015/11 I am on Ibrutinib. Some tireying, but bearable sideeffects, however excellent results of my monthly bloodtests and no lymphknodes. Even though this side looks encouraging, there are periods of depressive mood, because of lack of assurance, about how it will go on. This results in a change of my normal behaviour (I become touchy, listless, witty, e.g.)
So my wife and I decided to dare kind of an adventure. We hired a homemobile and did a 5 weeks, 5.000 Miles, trip up to the northcape. The impressions have been that intensive, (See the picture attached) that in my mind my situation nearly disapeared. And now, since we are back at home, I am grateful and are able to cooperate in a much better way with my feelings.
What I learned from this is, that a change of the familiar surrounding, might help to change your point of view in a positive way.
