Don't ever consider ,giving up the day job !

Don't ever consider ,giving up the day job !

One of the most important ways to combat this awful blood disorder ,is to keep a very positive state of mind ,Just always remember ,you don't die with MPN. You learn to live with it ! o.K. You may need to rest more ,,eat sensibly , give up the occasional treat ,( champagne / caviar ) but it's worth those con sessions to be well and feel good !! Stay focused my buddies ,,live in the moment ,stay strong ,,love lots .....twinkly ..xxx💜

  • Totally agree. Woke up feeling tired. Thoughtful and negative. Told myself off and then reason this. So right. Appt at hospital this week routine blood test. Still on asprin but I know my days of only taking this are few. But sun is shinning and off to trim the front garden. Sciatica permitting. Luckily it's all high bushes so no bending. If I'm lucky pilates tonight. Take care and thanks. Love the dog you look really well.
