Currently up in the Cairngorms doing a bit of hiking.
Today is last day up here and we did quite a tough 8 mile walk, Muddy and slippy (only fell over once :oops:) with some steep climbs.
Didn't see many people apart a few dog walkers at various points that's until we came across 3 blokes rerouting a footpath as it had collapsed in a stream.

As we approached them one said you're a Leeds fan then (had my Leeds wool hat on) and gave my a salute. Had a short chat and he was from Ilkley but lived in Scotland.

Coronavirus. Does it come with a lime?

Viruses like this one freak me out more than most negative things in life, even tho there is a small chance of me catching it. I won't catch it will i.

I would encourage everyone on here to read this article:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-51263384

I have recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer and will be having radiotherapy in the coming months.

My experience so far has been that people are shocked, upset by mention of the C word. But it really is very common, and absolutely doesn't have to be fatal if treated.

Here's a few random facts from my experience that may help in forming a perspective:

- My condition was detected via a blood test, so no sticking things where you might not want them to be.
- One experienced nurse in urology told me that in eight years only two men, both in their 80's, had the cancer return after radiotherapy
- My level of cancer is fairly mild and, statistically with all other things being equal, I'd live another 11 years (I've just turned 66) if it wasn't treated.

Personally my attitude is that I just have to 'get on with it' and I'm optimistic there will be a positive outcome. In myself I don't feel any different than before, although Mrs MW has commented I'm a bit more grumpy these days, which, honestly, I didn't think was possible :roll:

As an adult it doesn't matter what age you are prostate cancer is a possibility. If this message prompts just one of you to get checked I will be happy to have 'taken one for the team'.

PS: PM me about this if you want

100% agree! Fingers crossed for a positive outcome.
