I am new to this so please bear with me. I have been given the news that I have both PV and ET. I feel like I am in a box and I can't get out, scared and alone, may sound dramatic but the feeling is horrible. I am 43yrs old. I have the most awful dreams. I don't think it helped that my nurse said my prognosis isn't good this week but then I read that people have been living with one form or the other for years. Has anyone else got both ? I don't know where to turn.
