Breast cancer survivor and dating updating blob fields in mssql
When I told my boyfriend, Rob, about my diagnosis, he very supportive at first, saying that the disease ran in his family, so cancer talk wasn’t new to him.
Later, he would support me by saying that he wasn’t really a boob guy and showed me photos of women with beautiful “mastectomy tattoos.” This helped calm my mind about the potential future mutilation of my body.
Photos of surgery scars and mastectomies can be scary and make you feel you will never look or feel normal again.
The day I was scheduled to meet the surgeon and discuss my surgical options, my boyfriend was supposed to come with me.
But the night before my appointment, Rob said he wanted to take “a break” until January—which is when I was scheduled to finish chemo—to figure out his “life and work.” I sarcastically said, “A break while I go through chemo, doesn’t that sound wonderful.
If you don’t have a partner, you may feel apprehensive about meeting new people and dating.
You may be nervous about telling them you’ve had breast cancer, unsure when to give them this information and anxious about starting a physical relationship.
What a great idea Rob, I’m sure my roommate would love that too, oh and my mom, and most of all, I want a break while I go through chemo.” He said he didn’t mean it that way, but there was no recovering after that.
