Support for you
When someone you love and care about has been diagnosed with Waldenstrom's macroglobulinaemia, it can hugely impact you too.
It is just important for you to talk about your own thoughts and feelings. Although you may not want to burden others, it is important to reach out to your wider support network of friends and family – they can help ease the responsibilities and can be a listening ear for you. If you’re finding it hard, please make sure you share. The responsibility of caring is huge.
If you’re finding it hard to open up to friends or family, it is worth considering counselling – get in touch with your GP. Counselling is a great way to help offload with no judgement but also allows you to form some coping strategies.
Online Support Groups
The WMUK Virtual Support Group is a way to talk face-to-face with other people affected by Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinaemia.
We want to be able to support the WM community in any way we can. Knowing that it’s currently impossible for patients and their families to meet others affected by WM, we’re creating a safe, online space to get together and chat ‘face-to-face’.
