So pleased to have found this site. I was diagnosed a year ago now. In the early stages but my count seems to be rising, so watch and wait becomes watch and worry! I'm in my mid 50's with a teenage daughter. I was an early years teacher but was recently made redundant. I miss the children, but have noticed that I get far less infections. We have decided to visit family in New Zealand and as the flight date gets nearer I find I'm getting anxious about all those bugs that I'll be exposed to on that long flight! I have some large enlarged lymphs on my neck .. people are starting to spot them and comment on them now, which I find tricky.
