thank you for your post. many of us have been there. we know how hard it can be.
but "my cancer doesn't help your cancer," does it? i know how hard it is to be this way when you have children dependent on you. is that the ONLY thing that keeps us going? maybe. but at least it keeps us going and that's the outcome that matters.
ok. so your husband (ex?) is a crap. not the first nor the last. i know that doesn't make the hurt any less. and i know when we get into ""that" state dealing with relationships is the least important thing on our agendas. there is no "but" here. your first priority is YOU. if you aren't functional, you can't take care of the kids or any adult relationship.
are you getting professional help? can you call someone who can help you talk it out? if you start thinking of something more drastic (done that; been there), call a crisis hot line or suicide line. they're often listed in the front section of the telephone book (yes, i read that, too).
