Hi! Thanks for responding to my post. I doubt anyone I know would stumble along my post and I feel like if they did they'd know from my bio but- We were together for about 2 or so years when he was diagnosed with ALL. We've been going strong throughout and it's been a little over 7 years now. Currently I can't speak to him because I can't physically due to the condition he's in. I can't really go too much into detail since this is still sort of new even though his jounery has been for 5 years on and off. As of right now it's on but he's fighting something that after a lot of treatment has put him here. I'd just like some advice on how I can cope better in this situation without dragging others down into it. I don't know if that makes any sense.

My partner and I have been together for over 7 years and I've been with them before they were diagnosed with ALL. ( Acute lymphoblastic leukemia) I'm posting this to see if anyone else here may be in a similar circumstance to me and have any advice on how to deal with the situation. I currently can't talk to them while they're in the hospital. (too private to give detail) It's eating away at me but I think I'm also not as bad as when they were first diagnosed. (Sort of suppressing feelings atm) So anyone else who may have a loved one going through ALL and know how to sort of deal with it better? I just feel really alone and it feels like no one really can sympathise with me since they're also dealing with it too.
