I have been in a relationship for last 8 months. She has broken up with me because of a picture that was over a year old when she seen it. When we met nothing at all was said until this past saturday. She had to go on a trip to see her specialist in ottawa for leukemia. This has been confirmed. We have been talking since saturday and she has told me she feels very badly for wanting to have time to think about everying and if she can get past doubting my picture and that i look slightly different now...no goatee or spiky hair. Im worried that her friend she is staying with will convince her to leave me for good...even thought she has told me she loves everything about me misses me and still tells me she loves me and feels bad for putting me thru more hurt that is unnecessary. Last night we talked fairly well and she told me she would talk to me this morning. I asked her if all was ok. She replied..yes! Spending day with my friend. Should i leave her? Or hold on and hope she uses common sense and realize she made a mistake.

Personally I would see how she goes. She has lukaemia I presume from what you said. She is going through massive changes right now and maybe needs support from you. YOu sound as though you want to protect yourself in case of pain but in fact you should perhaps take the plunge and see how things pan out between you. Just my opinion, I hope you don't mind.

She is cancer free but she is mixed up ovrer a picture of me she seen that was a year old when she seen it. Hardly any communication at all from her besides she is spending day with her friend. She comes back tomorrow night. I have honoured her wishes by letting her think.but she has initiated all talking up until last night when we last talked. What should i do?
