We're so sorry to hear all of what you and your partner are going through -- certainly lots of transition! But we're really glad you've found us. You're sure to find a wonderful support system here -- we're here for both of you as you navigate this journey.
You're clearly a very good partner for worrying so much and loving her so dearly -- and we know she must realize this. It's so hard when someone you care for so deeply is managing a difficult diagnosis, and understandably much worse when you can't be there physically for her. She surely understands the practical reality of the situation, and she surely doesn't fault you for it. No need to feel guilty; it's just the reality of how things are right now. Try not to beat yourself up.
It may make you feel better to do something unexpected for her -- send her some flowers, send her a sweet goodnight video, or ship a care package to her of all the favorite things you enjoy together, to give her some sense of your presence, even if you're far away.
We know it's hard right now, but things WILL get better!
Others will be by shortly with some more suggestions, we're sure. But in the meantime, take it easy on yourself. She feels your love!
