"You will beat cancer but your relationship wont" A Guide to Relationship Survival!

Inspirations

Dont Lose them before you've Lost Them

Facts

Communication is Key

Listening is more important than talking

Relationships are easy. Relationships are hard work

A relationship has 2 individuals 2 sets of goals 2 sets of ideas

Relationships

All people and relationships have baggage. Its how you pack your baggage that counts

Some of the greatest movies are about finding and keeping love. So celebrate your victory.

Negotiating a relationship is like negotiating world peace. "Put down to nuclear warhead before you poke someones eye out"

Relationship Stocktake

Your loved them once? Why!!

Im not putting up with.....! Phase

My Story

I am a chick with friends, family, children and a loving supportive partner. Oh! and I have cancer.

When they diagnosed my body they diagnosed my relationship. "I would survive cancer but my relationship wouldn't." What did they know? They weren't counsellors! They didn't know me! They didn't know my partner! and they had no knowledge of my relationship! What did they know! Well they were nearly right. We have been lucky so far we are beating the odds.

Im not a counsellor or a psychiatrist amd maybe the only help this book will be to you is as a heavy object to throw or maybe there might be something here for you or your partner

Having a discussion

It is normal to discuss strenuously (fight/argue/disagree)

Keep your arguements on topic

dont dig up your dead in an argument - prior issues dealt with and buried should remain buried

I can talk like that I have cancer

Fight the cancer not each other

Cancer doesnt kill your relationship on its own. But it will take the bandaides off existing wounds.

SEX

Im not dead yet so having sex is not necrophilia YET!

Demystifying Cancer

Normalise cancer

Expose cancer for what it is
