In treatment for Plasmacytoma...


In treatment for Plasmacytoma...

So I'm 60% through my radiation treatment.  Feeling really drained...and discouraged becuase I know I have a 50% chance of this becomng multiple myeloma.  I'm struggling to keep positive for my family, and viewing my glass as half full.  Just trying to not feel so alone.  Lots of friends try to give support, positive thoughts, and "advice".  But none of them truly understand, unlike the people in this that's why I'm here...again, trying to not feel alone.  


Who has any experience with a plasmacytoma, or radiation?  How do you keep up your energy?
