I'm new to this place. We don't have any CML support groups in my city, that's why I'm here.
I was diagnosed with CML 4 years ago. I was only 21 years old back then.
I'm currently taking Geelvec with minor side effects.
Anyhow, I have dated 3 guys since then, two of them were understanding regarding CML.
I'm currently dating a guy (4 months now), and he has proposed to me, and I said yes as I can see a
future with him. The problem is I haven't told him yet about the CML.
When I first got t know him, I told him that I was diagnosed with "something" 4 years ago.
He asked what was it, and I said it was regarding White Blood Cells, they were high so I'm taking pills
to regulate the WBC count, and that was it. I never brought it up and he never asked me about it again.
I feel so pressured to tell him what my condition really is.. as I don't know what his reaction will be.
Plus, he is very close to his family, but they are very judgmental and I don't want them
to know anything about my situation.
What should I do?
