I was told last august that I had Cll and that I was a watch and wait patient. Since then I have chronic tiredness, pains in my joints and muscles. I get every cold that's going. I have just one year left until I retire and its like running in a marathon I am struggling badly. My concentration is not good.
What annoys me most is that my local GP has so little knowledge about this illness and keeps referring to my consultant, who will explain all next time I visit him.
I find it hard to have to keep explaining to my family about my lack of energy, they feel when you look all right you have to be all right.
I was at a seminar about Cll in Dublin. I found it very helpful.
Thanks to all of you for your positive posts and to this forum. It is a great help.
