I wish people in new relationships have a program available to them that lays out the emotional and practical realities of M. I'm sure that stuff is out there, it doesn't seem to be obvious though that its available.

You know it's funny you say that. Once you go through something you tend to wonder about/notice whether other people are going through it, too. When I was first diagnosed, I would be at the metro, look at all the people and think, "I wonder how many of these people have had cancer? I wonder how many will?" It's distressing, but also makes you feel less alone to think that others have experienced the same things. Kind of like this board!
