I brought my boss up to date on my PCa status last week. We had a good talk about where I was & where I was headed. He asked if I was of aware of Mr. "x", my co-worker, & his similar condition. I said I wasn't but was certainly going to talk to him. Well, we talked & I think it did us both a lot of good. He's at a state where he has to do something soon, as I'm still watch & wait. It was amazing that we both had almost identical thoughts & concerns about treatment & side effects. I told my friend about this forum & how much it has helped me so far. I hope he visits soon. I'm praying for him as I am all of you.
