It is such a relief to be able to say something. I struggle off and on. I feel I need to be composed and together for my darling. My partner was diagnosed a week ago with cervical cancer. I try not to be too much of a blubbering mess. Tomorrow we will find out what the chemo and possible surgery schedule is. I lost my father when I was three and my step father when I was 31 so I am no stranger to the difficulties of treatment. Some days I would just like to put the whole illness thing away and have a rest from it. Thanks for the site.

Re: Relief

Welcome MiniDriver, sorry to hear of your partner's diagnosis and best of luck with finding out more about the planned treatment schedule. It is not an easy time for both of you. My partner is naturally finding the same thing. Best of luck with everything.
