    Hi twiggy666.  Is this the first time you've had feelings like this? It's a difficult time for everybody at the moment. That why is so helpful to discuss your feelings on here - maybe it'll stop you feeling sad.

    Hi bonnielassie if I’m honest I was already terrified about the transplant but now it’s been cancelled and I’m in isolation I’m struggling with my mental well-being if I’m honest. Have been crying a lot xx

    Do you live on your own twiggy666? Is there anybody you can talk to about your feelings?

    I live with my son who’s autistic. My sister in law is really good but it’s so hard being in isolation and I suffer with ptsd so I find it very difficult to FaceTime or talk on the phone XX
