It feels odd posting about something so personal on a public forum, but I'm hoping I'll find it therapeutic. My father was just diagnosed with leukemia - ALL - and my entire family is in freefall. We're not quite sure how he got it, especially since he's in his 60s and ALL is more common among children. He'd been so healthy otherwise, really making efforts to keep fit and strong - so this is a real shock. What also complicates things is that he's a doctor, and has spent his entire life on the other side - so he's not taking to being a patient very well. He feels so helpless. It's really heartbreaking to see a parent like this - I just wanna wave a magic wand and make it all go away. Can anyone share their experiences, either as a survivor or caretaker? I feel so lost and upset. I've moved home, put off work, postponed my wedding, which was supposed to happen this winter... it's all so overwhelming. How do you get through it?
