she has stage 3b and possibly 4 and the doctors haven't been up front about the seriousness of this so i told her the survival rates as stated on an acs site.
(49% chance of surviving five yrs. for 3b,
11% chance for stage 4). i know these are averages and new drugs/treatments and lots of other factors apply, but these numbers scare me and i thought she ought to know
the truth. i just couldn't stand it anymore.
did i blow it as a mate/supporter? it just seems so serious, and she just wasn't aware
of the fact that this really is life or death. did i do a really bad thing? i just wanted to be honest with her. i care about her. i expect a ton of hate messages, but
a little understanding would be nice, too.
