Hello. I’m David from Leigh on Sea. Took early retirement in November 2020 as I broke my back. 90% recovered now and back in the gym playing volleyball and badminton. Live alone and just been diagnosed with cancer. Feeling anxious at the moment. Someone suggested this site so I thought I’d try it.

      Hi David, welcome to the RL community, glad to hear you are on the road to recovery from your back injury. Stay positive (not always easy I know) about the future and enjoy every moment, surround yourself with good friends and nice people. I also retired early, fed up with the office politics etc. and still trying to find/make structure to my days but lovingly just seeing what the day brings. Lots of general conversations on this site so feel free to jump on in there.

      Hello David
      Welcome to RL , it is good that you have recovered from your back problem , but sad that you now have another health issue .
      A very good friend of mine whom I’ve known for alot of years was just recently diagnosed with cancer .
      She has remained very positive , gets on with all her day to day hobbies , surrounds herself with lovely family and friends and wants to enjoy her life in the best way possible , there will be good and bad days of course , but doing things you love and keeping active all have a positive affect on your body , keep going and we are all here if in need of a chat or let off steam , like Bryony says your not alone 👍😊
