I have been on a few cancer support sites, and this is by far the best. You are all truly angels and you have no idea how helpful it is just to read the posts (though I suspect you DO know!!) I have only posted once or twice, and then "got busy living." I was diagnosed with Stage 3B AC in February, went through chemo and radiation, which ended in May and was totally life changing. Had my port removed in August, when the doc declared me "cured."
In the midst of my treatment - and at my lowest point physically - , my husband (who had lost his job 10 days before my dx) asked me to leave! I found out a couple of months later that he was having an affair with the woman he insisted accompany us to chemo each week! She has left her husband and home (have no idea where she is). My husband cannot move out without a job (and money). So I am stuck as the bread winner, as I head for divorce. (And, I would send him packing if I didn't absolutely need his unemployment checks until we sell the house).
I refuse to be a victim about this, and I swear that, having been through cancer treatment, this is NOTHING. I have THE BEST friends in the universe. Everyone has picked me up and helped me move forward. I'm not a crier, but I am feeling pretty low these days. Even with all the blessings and love in my life, I guess I feel a little sorry for myself.
Can anyone help me find perspective so I don't fall into HIS black hole?
God bless you all.
