    Default breast cancer diagnosis.. and I am just going to throw myself into my quilting..

    had my first round of chemo the day before yesterday.. feeling pretty good so far.. I just want to have friends that are supportive. my husband has decided that this is something he is just not willing to deal with.. no help, no support at all.. I just don't understand how someone that I have spent the last 18 years of my life just up and leaves me like this. I'm disgusted and just wish he would hurry up and leave.. so heart broken and confused... I have learned that for the most part that I can and never again count on any man to do the right thing... I know there are husband's out there that wouldn't dream of doing something like this... but it is obvious that mine isn't one of them.
    I just want to feel normal.. I just want to build friendships that will be supportive.. I think I have found the right community here...

    I am so sorry to hear this. We are here for you. I have a very good friend that went through the chemo about 5 yrs ago, and another about 10 yrs ago. They both live very full lives. Please know that you are in my prayers to have to deal with the treatments and then now with the person you thought would be there for you. Hang in there. You will find out how strong you really are. I never thought I'd get over my ex leaving me, but I have grown and blossomed a lot in these past 7 years.

    A useless husband on top of that diagnosis is a hard shift to deal with. Once his sorry ass leaves, you can devote all your time and energy to your healing. My thoughts are with you.

    Praying for you, sending a hug. I just think some men are not built to handle stuff like this. Linda, don't cut him out of your life just yet, if you still have feelings for him. You may have to be the bigger person here, and let him find his feet. If he leaves now, this will be hanging over the two of you long after the cancer is gone.
    I know you will be fine. Quilting apparently is great therapy!

    I'm so saddened to read this. As someone who was devastated by my husbands leaving a year ago (after almost 18 years) I can only imagine what you are going through with a cancer diagnosis at the same time. Make sure you lean on the people in your life who ARE there for you, reach out to them and let them know how much you are hurting, both physically and emotionally. Find a support group as soon as possible, aside from this forum, for people who are sharing your experiences. It really does help. I won't say any of the things that people normally say when a spouse leaves because I know it doesn't change anything. Just take care of yourself and post often. Throwing yourself into quilting is a fantastic idea!

    You will get support here as there are many cancer survivors here, including me. (Private message sent)
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!
