My partner has recently been diagnosed with grade 1 breast cancer and doesnt really know any other results. She has surgery on wednesday and I am I'll with worry. I feel useless and I cant stop stressing and worrying. I'm trying to be as supportive as I can but I am so runned down. I know it's not about me and i feel selfish for feeling this way. I feel on my own as she has no family or close friends nearby and I am going to be the only one with her and looking after her. I am scared of what is to come. I know I must sound terribly selfish....anyone else feel like this???
Hi Hayz86 welcome to the forum and I am so very sorry to hear about what is happening for you and how you are feeling about all this.
It is ok to be scared and worried there is no guide book for this for any of us so we hang by the coat tails and hope that we get it right for us and our loved ones. Sometimes we do and sometimes we don't.
It will be of no consolation when you are so worried but believe it or not a grade 1 is the best news that you could hope for in the big scheme of things as this is perfectly treatable.
I wonder if you knew that there is a Macmillan Line which you can call any day between 8am-8pm and is staffed by people who are good listeners and can be there for you the number is 08088080000.
Meantime Im sending some hugs your way for now. xxx
