Cheating Narcissist

Funny story...... My ex recently changed his job.  He told our son that he was doing it because he wouldn't have to work weekends, and would have every other Friday off.  Lo and behold, he's now working every Friday & every weekend. My son told me this when I asked how he gets to work … Continue reading Cheating Narcissist

Breaking Up With My Oncologist

I've decided to ditch my oncologist (gyn/oc = gynecological oncologist). The protocol for high grade serous epithelial stage 3B  ovarian cancer is 5 years of follow-ups.  During those 5 year Dr's are supposed to see you every 3 months, draw a CA125 every 3 months and, if there is a rise in the CA 125 … Continue reading Breaking Up With My Oncologist
