Hello all,
I've just discovered your message board, and it seems wonderful. My boyfriend was diagnosed with AML in April after a month and a half long experience of biopsies and taps and scans to determine the cause of the large swollen glands that appeared on his body in early March. The doctors thought HL, then NHL, and now AML.

At present, my sensitive, loving boyfriend, who is 27 years old, is receiving in-patient induction chemo, and going through hell (as expected, I know). I am finding it so difficult to go on with my life as normal as he suffers so immensely. I feel obsessed with what is happening to him; how can I become comfortable living with so much uncertainty about his (and my) future? In darker moments, reading about prognoses for this disease on the Internet has made me feel somewhat discouraged about his chances.

I would appreciate any advice that survivors or patients/ caregivers who have some experience with this disease can give me. My friends and family are being great; still, it is difficult to feel that there is no one in my position around to talk to about this shocking situation. Thank you. --Jenn
