Hey Carol! Welcome to healing Well! I love your Newbie alert title! it made me laugh :). I don't have a lot of great advice to give but I know there will be others along to help you with that. I know what you mean about who would want to date someone with ... except mine are a little different, more like who would want to date a overweight, physically ill, zebra strips all over body...but the wonderful people on here have told me that its what is inside you that matters the most, that if they really love you, then they will love you know matter what you look like. So I am praying for Mr. Right to come along and now I am just waiting and trying to keep myself well.
I still work full time and one of my biggest fears is not being able to continue to work full time. I try not to think about it and have learned to take one day at a time! I do everything I can to prevent flare ups and try to stay stress free so hopefully I will be able to continue my job but if something where to happen and I couldnt continue, there was a reason for it, I just have to wait and find out what the reason is for.
I know you will love HW and hope you stick around for us to get to know you better!
