Dating website for cancer patients
I am also not someone to take or place blame of a situation where it does not soundly belong.While I will not take blame for the how the ending evolved, I can honestly admit to myself that I am a part of the why. I hate the idea that I may be treated as the ‘sick girl’ or be handled with kid gloves as though I may break. While it is something I will have to deal with for the rest of my life and I have always been honest about that, I did not really discuss or reveal how that affected me.We're dealing with people who know they are facing imminent death.They are aware that their days are numbered and they know, more or less, how long they have to live.I never really opened up and talked about the fear I live with every day.I have never discussed, with anyone really, that I have a good idea about how I will die.

In fact, because we are more settled into who we are as individuals, it can sometimes be even more difficult the older we become to be willing to sacrifice that individuality. Not being someone who likes to jump from one relationship to another, I give myself time to heal and reflect before trying again.Add having Stage IV breast cancer to the mix, and its almost impossible. This time around, I am honestly not sure that I want to try again. I currently shown no evidence of active disease and been stable for approximately twelve months. I am still on a treatment regimen and will be for the remainder of my life. Having an expectancy period is not a guarantee of when it will happen.
