I had my monthly cancer care-givers support group this evening. I told them my story about my wife's infidelity, and how her decision to stay with the OM has forced me to stop providing her the care that a husband would a sick spouse.
My group is not kicking me out despite my new status as a cancer non-care giver. It is a good group and I felt supported this evening.
Me: BH, 39
Her: WW, 40
Together 18 years, married 15+
LTA 3.5 years, ongoing
Divorcing, 3 children

That's so night kg. They know you are a caring individual, they want to support you through this, while you help others with the cancer care. They sound like a wonderful group. BS(me) 46, kids DS 17, DD 14.
