Mumsnet hasn't checked the qualifications of anyone posting here. If you have medical concerns, please seek medical attention; if you think your problem could be acute, do so immediately. Even qualified doctors can't diagnose over the internet, so do bear that in mind when seeking or giving advice.
Me and my partner have been together 3 years. I have had some health issues recently and I am being referred for scans as have been told cancer is a small possibility. This has terrified me so I have told my partner how I am feeling and what sorts of pains I have been getting etc. This is normal to share this stuff when you are worried with your SO isnt it? I feel like I have just stressed him and he is panicking, maybe I should have said nothing and gone for all tests first and had a diagnosis before I told him.
Was I right to tell him or am I being selfish?
Any opinions would be appreciated.
You're not horrible nor are you being selfish. I'm so sorry you're going through this.
Thankyou , I just feel sick with stress and needed to tell him 😖 it could be a few things so need to just concentrate on it being something else. X
Yes of course you should tell him you need support. xx
I hope everything is ok xx
Absolutely not selfish at all, you can't be hiding with your worries. I'm sure he'd rather not be panicked but he can't help reacting as he's concerned for you. I really hope you get some good news, you're stronger than you think. I'm a big advocate of sharing your issues with friends and family- they're there for good and bad things in life. Thinking of you
