I was just wondering what others think about this. I was in a three-and-a-half-year relationship. We had issues, things weren't great. We broke up probably six or seven times. We were engaged at the time of my diagnosis of DCIS. We actually broke up the morning of my mammogram, and then after that, he professed his undying love to me, wants to be with me mind, body, and soul, blah, blah, blah. So he was with me through all the crap -- lumpectomy, MRI, mastectomy -- but very emotionally difficult. One day, supportive, the next, a jerk. He was washing dishes the night before my mastectomy, and Mr. Cheapo goes, I wonder what it's going to cost me if I have to stay at the hospital all day tomorrow. Imagine??? He also said to me during the week that I was home recuperating, he didn't get to have any alone time with me, because my teenage daughter was on the couch between us the whole time, and I didn't say anything, and he didn't want to be number two anymore. This is a 50-year-old man we're talking about.
Anyway, I could go on and on. Bottom line, broke up a month after my mastectomy. I brought it up, but he took the ball and ran with it. I was pretty devastated, and said to him, I can't believe you're doing this a month after my mastectomy, and he said, " You got a clean bill of health. You're out of the woods."
It's been four months since we've been broken up, and I'm still hurting from the whole thing. Do you think this is something you could ever forgive someone for? I feel like he abandoned me in the middle of the hell of going through what I went through, and he thinks I'm out of the woods!
