This is my second time on here . I came on when I was first diagnosed and was feeling ok about it all but then wham I was scared and decided that denial was the way to go but of course it didn't work !
My diagnosis is in favour of ET but I have got a small amount of fibrosis ( my platelets were 1072). I take aspirin and hydroxycarbamide 11 per week .
I go to Hinchinbrooke Hospital in Huntingdon and they're very good although I find the McMillan centre a bit of a gentle reminder . I go there every 3 months but I find I get depressed after every visit for about a week even if my bloods are ok .
Physically I'm ok ish but I seem to be an emotional wreck and I feel a bit selfish worrying about myself .
Does it get better ?
