It can be painful. Chemo and radiation suck, but you have to fight, there is a lot of hope. You can totally beat this! Eat well, stay positive, pray if you are religious.

Treatment for Acute Leukaemia's is grueling but doable if relapse occurs there are still options to be explored by way of continued treatment or Bone Marrow transplant which is also not pleasant but very doable, it's after this point if success is not reached that things can become painfully unpleasant.
I don't know how old you are but this also factors in on remission rates also gender, it helps greatly if you have an upbeat attitude, it's ok to be scared, this is a completely natural emotion, you will experience many emotions, don't be scared to talk about all your emotional issue's, it helps to get things off your chest and not compound them. It's more than ok to have your "pity parties" but don't let them consume you, get it out and over with when needed then jump back on the horse to continue winning the race....your a stayer, you can do this, all the best & I wish you well throughout your journey.....and hey it's not all bad there are many good times to be had to....people will surprise you :)

Hmm.....don't know if your for real after just reading your profile, boredom brings the worst out in some
