james- i'm in the same boat as you right now. my boyfriend broke up with me almost two weeks ago, said he "couldnt handle my circumstances". but like everyone has said, the person who you will be with for the rest of your life and who really loves you will not leave you no matter what. THROUGH SICKNESS AND IN HEALTH!
anyways i know it's hard, but you'll most likely be better off.
my heart goes out to you
