This Week's Carenote - 10/05/10
Hi All,
 
My boyfriend was recently diagnosed with C-3 colon cancer. He refuses to stop smoking, he refuses to get what exercise he can, he refuses to do anything at all for himself. Then when he is hospitalized due to blood clots, he blames me for his laziness. I need to find a cancer support group and a chemo support group for him in Enid, OK.
 
His behavior has been so outrageous that even a receptionist at a physicianís office would rather see me leave him right now, as sick as he is, than watch how he treats me in public. She said,  "If youíre not married to him, you need to pack and run as fast as you can!"
