Feeling Alone

Hey everyone, my name's Jill. I'm 19 years old and a very recent chromophobe renal cell carcinoma survivor. I had to have a left radical nephrectomy earlier this month to remove both the tumor and the afflicted kidney. I have a great support system in the form of my friends and family, but unfortunately after my surgery, my relationship of nearly two years broke down. So now I'm dealing with navigating both my new status as a cancer survivor and all the pain that comes along with having to let go of someone you care about. Everyone in my life has tried to be very supportive, but it's hard when they haven't gone through anything like it themselves. I guess I'm just hoping to find people like that here, because right now I just feel very isolated and alone.
