An old friend from high school has just come back in my life. We have been dating, last night I got a very stange call from him that he had to go away. He gave me no reason, just said it was very personal and he did not want to talk about it. I responded very bad, I figured he was with someone else. This morning, I recieved a e-mail from him. He told me five years ago after we graduated, he was diagnosed with Leukemia. A year ago he went into remission. He just had a check up on Tuesday and found out it is back. The reason he had not mentioned this to me, was his last girlfriend went through a lot when he got sick. He thought he was in the clear. When he found out it was back, he did not want to put me through what she did. I just spoke to him on the phone, he leaves tomorrow for Duke for treatment. He said he wants time alone and that he cares too much about me to put through it. Two years ago I found out I have Diabetes, at first I was very depressed. I learned talking about it helped a lot. Is there any thing I can say to him to help? I really want to let him know I am there for him. Any advise would be appreciated.
