Support Groups and Counseling
Living with myeloma presents many new challenges for an affected individual and his or her family and friends. There may be many worries about how myeloma will affect someone and his or her ability to "live a normal life," that is, to care for family and home, to hold a job, and to continue the friendships and activities one enjoys.
Many people may feel anxious and depressed. Some people feel angry and resentful; others feel helpless and defeated. For most people with myeloma, talking about their feelings and concerns can be helpful.
