I'm a recently turned 35 yo single mom of an 11 yo. Diagnosis 2011 stage 3c ovaca.

I'm in a relationship with a good guy, going on 3 years....he's been great with everything. But a few months ago I started having no interest in him, whatsoever. Not sexually,'s just all gone. We live together lease isn't up yet, I'm wide awake at 4:30 am I know I want to end things, but ugh...I just keep chicken ing out!

I've started active treatment again because of a spot near my spleen, dammit I'm the one going through chemo and I'm so worried about him. Any advice would be appreciated.

I would say get yourself through chemo.... your health is number 1... everything else falls into place. Relationship stress isn't good either but he helps you get through chemo that could be a good thing




Hi Ashkaren. That does sound like a super tough situation. It's not like you don't have enough on your mind with treatment! Don't know if I have any advice for you, but I do know it's important to take care of both your physical and mental health, so I hope you're able to find a way to not let the worrying overcome you. Best of luck-- sending you lots of strength and love.
