no one will tell me anything!

I’m 15 and they just told me and my mom I have leukemia. I came to the hospital yesterday. They said I had a seizure. I don’t remember. I was in the hall and then I was in an ambulance.
I asked them what I am supposed to do and they just said stay calm. Any time I talk to a nurse about doing something they just say to stay calm. I ‘m not calm! i want to do something.
They are going to send me somewhere else because they don’t have a childrens oncologist. I asked them where and they said they were going to talk about it and then they left.
That was like an hour ago. I’ve been on my moms ipad since then looking up wikipedia and there are all of these different types of leukemia. I don’t know whichone wasn’t listening to that part. It says that they will want to do a bonemarrow transplant and that page says it has to come from a sibling but im an only child so what does that mean?
I don’t know why I’m posting this. I don’t even know if where they are going to send me gets internet.

    Hi My name is Katlynn and I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in March of 2011 at the age of 19. So I know a little bit about what you are going through, They are right the best thing you can do is to stay calm but dont be afraid to express yourself in your own way, I know it doesnt seem like it now but It will be okay and dont worry about losing your hair because it will grow back and Bald is Beautiful,,, Just stay strong I know it can be hard at times, do what the doctors and nurses tell you, stay hydrated even if you dont feel like it try to drink alot. You could try drinking different things like flavored water or juices try MEO water flavoring they have lots of flavors, and take your medicine it is very important that you take it, I know it may seem tough but this is just a big mountain but before you know it, it will be over. and if you ever want to chat My email is

    Stay strong
