Yup. I worked in a factory when I was 19 during the college years and promised myself I'd never do it again. That was enough to scare the Bejesus out of doing something like that for a living.

If I'm being too nosy, just ignore this comment. Have they told you how long you have left and have you put your name down for any trials going? People have been told they have months and lasted years, so don't take what they say as gospel.

First off deepest sympathy for your situation and pray your terminal diagnosis is an error.
I retired at 50 because neither of my grandfathers or my dad got past 70. I decided I didn’t want to work until 65 and then maybe get 5 years. Best decision I ever made. Wake up every morning a free man and I’m never bored.

My Dad was 69 when he passed away
2nd Eldest Brother only 57 when the big C got him.

That prompted one brother to retire at 55 and I finished at 58...
Loving it .. 3 years and 1 week ago sold the business and retired... and now its make a brew at 8.30am and back to bed with the paper, Gardening and DIY stuff during the day along with planning holidays etc.

I love it, I know exactly what you mean ... I never get bored as there is slways something to do and if not theres always "Homes under the Hammer" on the box ;)

Worked as an accountant for 28 years and 12 years ago gave it up to became a self employed foreign student organiser. Best move I ever made as we work 24/7 for 9 months of the year then have 3 months off !! Also do bookkeeping for a student hotel in Hastings and do tours of Whitstable for those groups that want to book me.

Then let's keep it at bay. No doubt you're already doing this, but put your name down for any trial going. You just never know, the next drug you have could be the cure.

How have you been feeling since October 2017? Do you feel the same as you were back then?

Get that. I’m truly sorry for your plight but as you've said earlier, given 6months in Oct17, I hope you’ve nailed it.
BTW. I wanted to retire to Spain but the pull of the grandkids was too much for Mrs Trevor.
