I guess ultimately you have to ask yourself the question " Do you still love him, and vice versa "
Would couples therapy help. I never thought id go to this kind of therapy, but me and my partner now do, as it hasn't been easy either, and it has gotten better.
Focus on your cancer its more important at the moment, but relationships still need attention. I was consumed by Google, and information on cancer and its quite typical of a patient to do this, as its the unknown. Do partners understand the turmoil associated with this, only some do.
I felt alone in my treatment, I was told I deserved cancer, and that i'll die soon.
We are working on it as there is still a spark. However not easy, but if there is no spark then why continue. However sometimes im not too sure either.
It can all be so confusing at times.
