Well I went back to work today. It was tiring and awkward. I was aware that some people already knew I had cancer, so meeting them in the corridor was a bit awkward; for them I mean. For some people they automatically say ‘Hi, you alright’ and then realise that actually I'm not and they just realised what they said.
I spent today making sure that those that I speak to are fully aware of my situation and explained as much as I can about the myeloma. I would rather they know than make assumptions. I have explained that they should feel free to come and ask as many questions as they want, I don’t mind.
