MPN Diagnosis

I was diagnosed with Polycythemia Vera by my general practitioner, essential thrombocythemia by my hematologist and Myeloproliferative disorder by my oncologist take your pick. I was handling the diagnosis ok until I had the born marrow biopsy and it was positive.

At first, I was in denial, then I was angry with everyone even Jehovah God. I'm still working part-time, thank goodness my manager is very understanding I can come and go as my energy lasts. We are training a new employee to take my place. I am mentally, emotionally, and physically drained. My can do can't keep up with my want to. Thanks for listening. Almost forgot I also have JAK2 MUTATION still don't understand what that is no matter how much I research it.
