Merry Christmas from Maz

I just wanted to say thank you to all of you who are part of this forum, you are all lovely people and the support you show to others is amazing, so well done all of you.

I also want to say to all of you, enjoy yourselves over Christmas, try not to stress too much about getting everything done, it will wait, don't get too tired, if you do, stop and rest and don't feel guilty. Let other people help you if they offer, if they don't offer, give them some BIG hints that it's their turn to wash up or make a cup of tea.

I shall be lounging on the sofa watching lovely Christmas films (including Die Hard) (for about the millioneth time!!) and eating as much chocolate and cake that I possibly can, and it is quite a lot! Christmas lunch will be ready when it's ready, so may be Christmas dinner, who cares, it's Christmas!!!

I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas Maz. Thanks for all you do on this forum and for MPN Voice. As a newly diagnosed young-ish ET patient this year, the forum and charity website gave me some really good advice so that I can understand the illness a bit more, and just get on with living life!

Cheers, and enjoy the cake!!!

Hi Maz,

Merry Christmas & happy new year to you!

And the best way for people to ease any guilt of chocolate, eating too much etc?

Go on a parkrun! ;)

Best regards

Merry Christmas to you too and everyone on the forum who have been a great support to me. I have now been discharged from my heamotoligist, after lots of tests, lasting a year, they can find no reason for my high platelets, that have been high for 6 years now. So that's that. Goodbye all. Love always, sarahjane. XxX

Merry Christmas to you and your family too, Maz. And thank you for all you do to help keep this wonderful forum going. There are many Facebook pages popping up in “support” of MPNs but so many are seeped in confrontations and high opinions. This forum is SO different in that it always offers real support for people as they need it.

Happy Christmas to all xx

Hi Maz,

Happy Christmas to you too.

It is we, who should be thanking you for all you do. Unless you’re a forum attender or realise who is the mainstay behind Mpn voice on which we all rely so much, you won’t know how incredibly HARD Maz works to keep it all going. You deserve a medal!

Absolutely right, don’t stress! It’s one day, and no one cares!

Wishing everyone out there a really lovely Christmas, and the happiest and healthiest of New Years - and always remember, look on the bright side, keep your cups three quarters full - there is always someone out there in a far worse spot than we we are!

So here’s to us. Merry Christmas 🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄😊

Love

Louise

Merry Christmas Maz and all the Very Best for the New Year!

Thank you so much for your work with the forum, I know that it is far more than "just a job" for you and you really care and make people welcome and feel supported. The forum has been a real blessing and something of a life-line for me both through all the ups and downs of discovering how to adapt to life with an MPN.

Thank you Maz, all the best to you and yours! And Merry Christmas and happy new year to all I have and all I have not conversed with from a mostly non poster, of late! I’m glad to say it’s because I’ve been busy and not so unwell, and have felt very lucky to have been that way, I wish everyone else was so fortunate!

All the best 😉
