Five years ago I was diagnosed with kidney cancer. Renal Cell Carcinoma, stage 2 of 3. I had a partial nephrectomy of my right kidney. About a year after, my ex husband had an affair, that's why he's my ex. He was never supportive and wouldn't allow me to talk about the cancer. He said, "If I talked about it, it meant I wanted it to come back!" Yeah right, that was a horrible thing to say. As of now I am cancer free, but will be taking tests soon. Like I typed above, I have entered the dating world. But it's like when I tell the person I meet that I am a cancer survivor they run the opposite way. I am going through so many emotions, none good. I want to be honest with people. I mean this is a part of my life and always will be. If anyone has any advice for me, I would really appreciate it. I am 42 years old and do not want to live the rest of my life without a special man by my side.
