Hi All - today is my 45 birthday. Not only that it is exactly (to the day) one year since I was diagnosed with PMF. My 44th birthday as you can imagine was pretty much a write off as were the next couple of months as I came to terms with the diagnosis and what that meant to me going forward. However, I am pleased to say that although that happened, things really haven't changed for me over the last year. I'm still fit and well, still working full time and still able to get out and about and enjoy time with my fabulous family and my wonderful kids.
Although it is 12 months exactly since my diagnosis, this birthday has been very different for me. It has already been full of fun and much more to come, I have been very spoilt and treated to lots of things by my family and friends, out for lunch today and over the next few days and out over the next few evenings.
I know I am very lucky to be in this position and I send lots of love and positive vibes to all our MPN friends who are struggling at various stages but just wanted to let the newbies on here know there is life after diagnosis and it doesn't have to be the end of the world.
Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine. I put a special order in for it
