A warm welcome to our Marie Curie community and we’re sorry
to hear about your condition and how it’s affecting you. It sounds like you’ve
had to try and cope with some big changes in your life in recent years from being active to
finding things challenging day to day with your mobility and problems with pain.
It is understandable if you’re finding all of these changes hard. You also feel unsupported by professionals which can certainly make things more difficult and stressful.
At Marie Curie we’re here for anyone living with a terminal
condition, whatever stage you’re at and not only at end of life, so this
community is very much a safe space for you to share as much as you feel
comfortable doing or to ask any question on your mind. We hope you will find
your time here helpful. Perhaps others, who may be experiencing something similar,
can offer some mutu al support.
If you’ve not already had a look around our website, you’ll
find lots of information about living with a terminal condition and help that
may be available:
If it might help to speak with someone for regular support,
our Companion over the Phone service provides weekly telephone calls with
a trained volunteer:
Our national Support Line is also available to speak with,
so whether you’re looking for practical information or need a listening ear,
please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We’re available on Freephone 0800 090
2309, as well as through webchat at www.mariecurie.org.uk.
