There is no right or wrong; only what is best for your personal relationship.

When you are living together your partner will gradually learn more about your treatments and with time they might want, or need, to become more involved.

Some people find this support helpful, where as others still prefer to keep their treatments more private.

It can also be difficult for partners to know how involved they should become in treatments, and some might prefer to stay very much on the periphery.

Others might want to offer as much help as possible, or may start to worry about whether you are keeping up with treatments effectively.
