My lover was just diagnosed with cancer. The spouse in the unit is a nut job. First reaction was insane, but now seems to have settled down, although it's hard to know for sure. My lover has been doing the strong and silent routine and I can't tell if he's editing reality to keep me from worrying. He's emphatic that what he needs most is to keep things from going postal, and I understand that, but it makes me nuts to think he could be stumbling around alone, uncared for, afrer chemo.
Any similar experiences from mistresses, lovers, etc?
