Kaitlyn Bristowe is the Bachelorette! She charmed her way into the hearts of the Bachelor Nation – and nearly the Bachelor himself, Chris Soules, on season 19 of The Bachelor. Now Kaitlyn has begun her own journey to love.

I can't believe I'm writing my eighth blog! Time flies when you're on an emotional roller coaster. That's the saying, right?

Taking in all that Chris Harrison and I talked about, it really hit me just how serious these upcoming dates were. Their purpose wasn't to just have a good time and see if there's a connection. Their purpose was to figure out and know if I could see a forever with these guys. Not wonder if I could, but really sort through and make a decision. It was some heavy stuff, and I think the guys felt the pressure, too!

I wonder how many times I can try and explain how hard this journey is to go through and for people to understand, but IT'S HARD! It is difficult having this many relationships at once and even more challenging when you have to watch people you care for struggling though the journey.

Of all the guys, the one having the most difficulty was Shawn, and I totally understood. I don't think you ever go into this experience thinking you're going to feel feelings this deep. You want to, and you hope it happens, but you don't necessarily think it will. So how can you prepare yourself? I believe that's what Shawn's struggles were. He didn't expect to feel all the things he was feeling. It's so hard to care about someone and try and let your brain access those feelings in an average relationship. Now imagine adding in that you are trying to accept the person you care about has other relationships happening. It was only human for him to be upset.

Amber Marchese's Blog: Cancer 'Is Not My Reality'

Amber Marchese, star of The Real Housewives of New Jersey , is blogging about her second battle with cancer for PEOPLE. After surviving breast cancer in 2009, she discovered a lump, which turned out to be cancerous, in her right breast in April. Marchese will share updates on her treatment and how she is coping with this second round of the deadly disease with prayer, a positive outlook and the help of her family.

As I wrote last week, my scans were now complete, as was my lumpectomy – my first of several more surgeries to come. I was anxiously awaiting the scan results, which would determine my prognosis. It felt like an eternity waiting for my results. I scheduled an appointment to meet my oncologist Dr. Nissenblatt (whom I call Dr. N) to get my results.

As I drove to his office I thought back to what happened and how the last few weeks had transpired. Over the last few weeks, some days I was wracked with fear, others I glided through with no issues, almost as if my diagnosis was just an episode on TV. Seriously, this is not my reality.

I really, really wanted to chirp Ian ruthlessly, but I didn't have to. He did enough damage himself. I understand that it doesn't feel good when feelings aren't reciprocated, but try and exit with some dignity. I have nothing more to say about Ian; I've already wasted enough time on him. Men Tell All should be fun.

I know no one will ever understand how hard rose ceremonies are. They always come after a week of being emotionally drained. And while having the rose ceremony at The Alamo was amazing, I couldn't really take it in knowing the difficult decision ahead of me.

Enter Nick. Talk about uncomfortable. He just walked right into the lion's den, and I could feel the tension through the TV. It was actually pretty tough for me to watch because I really saw with my own eyes how much the guys cared. Joshua was so sweet when he questioned Nick calling me a "cool chick." He is such a good, ol' fashioned country boy. I never ever meant to be disrespectful to Joshua or any of the other guys by having Nick stay. I just had to follow my heart, and my heart told me to give Nick a chance.

It's also such a strange world where it's okay for me to "explore my options" while the guys are only there for me. Actually in this case NOT all of them were there for me and they TOO explored options. (If you recall there were two Bachelorettes!) And I am so sorry that a lot of people see a problem with this. But there was an attraction with Nick, and I had to pursue it. I was still getting to know these guys, it didn't feel too late, and this was something I just had to do.

If you read my blog last week, you know I left off at a point where the doctors had to determine the Stage to which my disease progressed. As I said last week, the first step before determining your treatment is Staging your disease. My amazing oncologist, Dr. Michael Nissenblatt, began ordering a gamut of tests to see if and or how far the cancer spread. My first scan was a full body PET scan (positron emission tomography (PET) scan. The PET scan uses a radioactive substance to identify cells rapidly metabolizing sugar. Why do we care about sugar? That was my question.

Simply put, cancer cells grow at an accelerated rate and require a food source, so cells that are rapidly metabolizing sugar are growing (more on nutrition and cancer in a later blog). The PET scan identifies spots of increased activity. The cells that burn sugar are called "hot spots" because they literally glow on the scan, with a tumor glowing as it grows much faster than normal cells. Before you look at your PET scan and freak out, half your organs should glow! Remember many of your organs (like your heart) better have activity, or you are literally dead.

So my husband Jim and I drove to the radiology center. It was clear day, and the sky was blue, but I only know this because my husband told me – I was lost in thought.
