He has been battling cancer for about a year now. If everything stays on schedule, he will be getting his transfusion at the end of March. He will be staying in the hospital for about 4 weeks aftwards, assuming there are no complications. I have a few people that I can talk to, but what I'm really frustrated with is him. I've even told him to do or say little things that make me happy, but he just doesn't. I'm on the fence about staying with him. It's been a long time since I've reay felt happy with him, and he doesn't seem to care about anything.

So I was with my boyfriend for about a year before he was diagnosed with stage 2 HL. He happens to gall in the 15% who doesn't respond to the standard treatment and has had many infections/ complications along the way. As a last resort he will be getting a stem cell transplant around March. I have spent half of our relationship constantly giving him all my free time l, attention, and enegery. I am quite burnt out. Now I'm wondering if this will even be worth it. Our whole relationship has always been about him and everything he has going on in his life. I feel completely neglected. Anytime I have talked to him about it, he just refuses to accept how I feel and does nothing different. I feel like i am not even a part of his life. I have so much anger and resentment towards him. We've gone to councelling, but he seem to listen to anything being said. Since we only had about a year of getting to know each other, I'm scared that this is just the person he is. I just don't know what to do.
