    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    As the mother of 7 kids (6 still at home), being diagnosed with cancer is not something I have time for. I am the sole income provider in the house so immediately I was terrified at how I was going to go through treatment AND continue to work. I do not have a family history of breast cancer except for my great aunt.

    Relationship

    Loss

    My husband and I have a rocky marriage and this has completely demolished anything left. I am forced to fend for myself as he is not supportive what so ever. He will help with caring for the kids since he is our "stay at home parent," but could care less if I never get out of bed or have anything to eat or drink no less experiencing any side effects. It has been a real eye opener for me since I could never be so cold towards someone let alone the person married to me. I now have to deal with the cancer but also the depression that comes along with the end of this relationship. I don't know exactly what to do since we have so many children together, but I just don't feel that I can stay in a place where someone cares so little for me..
