On numerous occasions we have talked about whether its worth us being together right now based on what he is going through. I personally would want to stay with him in a relationship but equally I am struggling with the situation. He has also said he feels selfish for bringing me in with him into this at this difficult time and just wants to make me happy. He is currently taking medication and his is also receiving counselling so is doing something about it.
Previously we have nearly broken up but ended up staying together because we both love and care for each other so much. However yesterday he told me he couldn't continue our relationship anymore as he is struggling with his illness and needs to get better on his own - I have been so sad as this is the last thing I want however I know it may be for the best. I said I will be there for him if he needs me but equally I feel I will struggle to remain friends with someone I love. He made it clear he wants to remain friends and speak now and again but I was unsure if this would be right or not.
Do you think I should still speak with him as friends? Do you think he may potentially he may be wanting to stay friends in hope we could get back together in the future?

If you want to keep in touch with him then do it, we can at least both tell that he wants to keep talking to you.
Its definitely possible that he's expecting you to get back together after he's "fixed" but doesn't wanna have the burden of being in a relationship holding him back from what he needs to do. Its doubtful here that'd he'd complain if you did find someone else but wanting to wait or not is all up to you and your needs.
