Sadly, she lost her battle and is no longer with us. Mine has helped me get through this whole cancer thing! I just realize I have to live in the present moment, live in the now, become the best me right now, and not worry about what will happen in six months, or a year. I'm so lonely, I just want someone to talk to who will understand what I'm going through. I feel so sorry and sad that I’m so far away from you.
I am 30, from GA, and looking for the love of my life. Check out 'C is for Cupid' - I think the url is cisforcupid.org, but it's specifically a 'dating site for cancer survivors.' I'm on there, have had some great discussions and sharing. I know if I do my best right now, I'll be where I want to be in six months. I know about being broken into pieces, I just live in the present moment now. I'm in NYC if there's any women out there from my location, I could really use a friend, it would be nice to have someone to talk too, someone to encourage, and for them to be an encouragement to me. I live in uk but if you want you can text me anytime you want.
I would love to meet other girls to strategize with, too!
Broke my heart and I wonder if I will ever be "normal" enough for someone to want to love me or if I will be able to open myself up to that again.
Stage 1: My date and I would meet for coffee or a walk and we'd exchange a few pleasantries. I usually found myself telling different degrees of the truth, depending on how I felt the other person might react.
Stage 2: Pretty quickly, we’d move into interview mode. In the end, it turned out that it didn't matter how careful I was about describing my situation. Among the millions of thoughts that immediately flooded my mind was also a sense of terror of going through this alone and possibly dying alone. Part of me was relieved that a partner wouldn’t be dragged through this nightmare, but I also desperately wished for someone to help me figure things out and to tell me everything was going to be okay. I felt this way especially during the long, silent sleepless nights when I would lay in bed sick and scared.

I can relate, I had dated a woman for 9 mos, and she was great about it at the start and most of that time. Be strong and you will see that you will find someon!!!I told her everything before we were involved, and really she is a well-meaning person who doesn't get scared off by cancer. i think it would just be easier to date someone who also had/has cancer because they can understand what it is/was like. I recently even created my own introduction-to-dating website, where like-minded survivors and thrivers can find each other and then make authentic connections in the real world.In the meantime, I am grateful to be alive, happy, and loved by wonderful people who add joy to my life every day.When most people had stopped coming around or checking in as often, I found space to learn about my new “beingness.” Suddenly, wearing a wig, fake eyelashes, and clothes that covered my wounds wasn't just about making it less sad for everyone else around me.
