my wife was recently diagnosed with MM, reading about it online is so hard, any tips on how to read about it without losing hope?

      There are many many people who live with MM. The stuff you read is old and there are a ton of therapies available. Not sugar coating it…. It’s rough. But not as dire as you read on line.

      Do not read anything unless it is from a trusted website, like American Cancer Soceity, International Multiple Myeloma Foundation, Univ. of Penn, Mayo Clinic, etc. There are to many general people posting bad info that think they know something because their sister in law had MM.

      I totally get where you're coming from. It's tough trying to sift through all that info online, and its just making things scarier, one thing that helped me was to take breaks from the internet. I made a rule for myself: only a certain amount of time online each day, and then I'd switch off and do something else, like watch a movie or go for a walk.🤷‍♂️
