I was single when diagnosed, (still am actually) but for the three years prior to my diagnosis I was madly in love with a man that didn't love me; he loved somebody else, and I finally got used to the idea that he would never be mine, and he suddenly fell madly in love with me after my diagnosis and wanted to be there for me for everything. WTH?
Complete opposite of your scenario, but just wanted you to know that I got through my diagnosis and treatment, and since then, with the love of my family, friends, and the girls on this site.
You aren't the first girl on here to say her 'man' wasn't supportive. Some men don't handle illness well. Try to let it (him) go, and hopefully he will come around for you. If he doesn't, know that we are all here for you. You are not alone.
I'm sorry you are having to join us Kelley, but there are so many wonderful women (& some men) on this site that will be here for you every step of the way. Post often. You'll be very quickly embraced. I promise.
Diagnosis: 2/12/2007, IDC, 6cm+, Stage IIIb, Grade 3, 0/14 nodes, ER-/PR-, HER2-
