I was crushed by my ex. It's been 5 or 6 years since the parting. She contacted me after the first split said she was pregnant and I got excited and got back together. It lasted about 2 years before everything crumbled and I couldn't do it anymore. It was like I had to care for a baby and an adult child. DNA test said baby wasn't mine and I'm pretty sure she knew it and possible even planned to get pregnant. I have since grown more and more isolated and have trust issues with women. Or maybe just afraid to open up to try again.
I've got no real life friends and no one to talk to. I just recently started trying to talk to people but I feel worthless. Like I have nothing to offer in a friendship, never mind a woman in a relationship. I don't know I'm just struggling.
I tried to start exercising a couple of months ago but it got cold and without a buddy to help keep each other going I fell out of routine. Social media really isn't something I'm into at least not with information gathering platforms that are available. Then you have this pandemic. So I thought I might throw a pebble into a small part of this ocean and see if the ripples lead anywhere. I wouldn't even mind just helping someone else through their stuff. I feel good when I help others even when I'm isolated and feel like an I don't belong.

@Artchic528 Is it completely over with him? If he didn't know why you were being distant, it makes sense that he'd take it personally. My relationship hasn't been the best (well, pretty sucky actually) but it's vastly improved since my spouse developed cancer this year (that sounds horrible). She realized that she needed support and I was willing to give it. Did you ever get to tell him about your diagnosis? Maybe he just needs a reason and all isn't lost.

I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis. It can be a rough trip. Take care of yourself.
