Before my diagnosis with MDS, my wife and I loved to travel. We traveled overseas and throughout the country. We had a camper. And we loved to do that with our friends and family. Once the MDS became a little further progressed and we had to do blood counts on a weekly basis, we had to stop doing that. So that was a little bit of a disappointment not to be able to do those things that you were able to do before. One can travel some, but I've had to limit my travel very extensively. Another thing, I was always a handyman around the house and would repair things, my car, my camper, different appliances, and I've had to kind of give that up because your physical strength doesn't permit you to do the things you did before. So all those things are a little disappointing, and you have to come to grips with the fact that I can't do that anymore but I'm not going to let that overcome me and make me too unhappy. So just do what you can. Always stay positive.
