Hi rockchik and welcome to the BCC forums
Along with the support here our helpliners are on hand with further support, information and a listening ear on 0808 800 6000, lines are open 9-5 during the week and 10-2 Saturdays
I am posting a link to the 'Just diagnosed' section of the website where you will find lots more information and support ideas which I hope will help:
It sounds like you're having a rough time at the moment. I’m sure the users of this site will be along to support you soon.
In the meantime if you need extra support please do give the BCC helpline call. The staff are there to offer emotional support as well as practical information. The free phone number is 0808 800 6000 and the lines are open Monday to Friday 9.00 to 5.00 and Saturday 10.00 to 2.00.
We also run a live chat session every Thursday evening from 8.30pm to 9.30pm, which is facilitated by a moderator and nurse. Here you can chat on-line with others who are feeling similar to yourself. If you would like futher information just click on the link below:
I hope this is helpful,
Best wishes Sam, BCC Facilitator
