This forum is for the discussion of anything to do with Prostate Cancer. There are only four rules:
No fundraisers, no commercials (although it is OK to recommend choices of treatment or medical people based on your personal research; invitations to participate in third-party surveys are also acceptable, provided there is no compensation to YANA);
No harvesting e-mail addresses for Spam;
No insults or flaming - be polite and respectful at all times and understand that there may be a variety of points of view, all of which may have some validity;
Opinions are OK, but please provide as much factual evidence as possible for any assertions that you are making
Failure to abide by these simple rules will result in the immediate and permanent suspension of your posting privileges.

I have not read Robert Young's Advice Book as I am only a week or so since diagnosed and am still in the frightened stages. I would say that reading the 1-14 items you mention really sums it up. however,
I started to fear waking up after my biopsy's then when I was told I was positive I seemed to cross a line which no one else can come over unless they are like me.
I have started to get stronger and seeing some of the humor on a part of this sight namely the doctor telling the guy he is positive I used that with my name on to tell my friends of my condition.
But back to Robert's work just reading it gives me strength so his work is really helpful to people like me.
Can I say as a newby here thanks for the site and any encouragement that you can give to me and other newbies.
It is easy to forget how hard it was at the start
