My boyfriend was just diagnosed with Richter Syndrome about 2 hours ago. Those have been 2 hours where I have felt myself losing my mind! They told him not to google anything in regards to the diagnosis as they are doing more tests. Of course, I didn’t listen! Everything I have read has been certifying death/expiration date on patients. It wasn’t until I found this community that I have found a sense of hope. I want to thank all of you. Everyone that has posted or responded to someone else. I can’t describe the relief I feel that I don’t have to be alone in this. I just had to write this to not only thank you all but to ask of your experiences in regards to this diagnosis. Online is no help and there is no other way I can educate myself on this without alarming my boyfriend. He has Cancer in other areas and this new diagnosis is emotionally just too much for him. I am his rock...but blow after blow I just don’t feel strong enough to falsely give him a smile and cheer him up. I need your strength and honesty in order to propel forward. I appreciate you all.
