I have never done anything like this before but I am really struggling, I was hoping I could hear stories or have some support from people who understand.
My friends are trying their best but sometimes say the wrong things.
My boyfriend of 3 years (not a huge amount of time I know) has just been diagnosed with a really rare form of lung cancer, that was only discovered in 2007. It isn’t curable, although I’m looking at the positive with new treatments available that’ll give him a better quality of life, the research I’ve done has suggested to me that we may only have 2-3years.
I am crushed! I’m not sure what to do with myself. I work 6 days a week, my employers are so understanding and let me do what I need to do, however I just want to spend every minuet with him! As I’m sure you can understand?
I’m only 22 and I really don’t know how I will ever recover when the worst happens. I’ve never been so in love, I know he is my soul mate (soppy I know). He truly is my best friend.
I lead a simple life, I work and I see my boyfriend. That’s it and I’m (was) perfectly happy with my little life, it was peaceful and I felt as though we had the entire world at our finger tips. We had so many plans for our future together.
I really don’t know what to do. The longer this goes on the more I’m realising this is real and I’m not going to wake up.
I think I need a rant! I will never say any of this to him as I’m trying to stay positive and strong for him.
Thank you for listening and I’d appreciate any reply.
Sending my best to all of you and I hope we can all help each other!
