oh...this is a hard one. honestly I think you passed the best time to tell him...not to make you feel bad. it doesn't mean you still can't tell him though. first I have a couple of questions, how serious are you guys? how did you meet? and how often do you see each other? I'm not trying to be nosy I'm just trying to figure out a good way to tell him. I mean if you guys see each other often or even if you don't, but when you do see each other it's for a few days he might already suspect something is up unless you're really good at hiding your symptoms. do you guys talk alot? do you know how he feels about
mental illnesses or even medicine and doctors in general? I gave up dating the old fashioned way and met my current boyfriend of 3 years online. He also lived in a different state. When I first tried online dating I kept my illnesses a secret and if anyone ever came over I would hide my pills, etc. That didn't work out too well. So finally I gave up and on my dating profile online I just came right out and said I was on disability for whatever and if people have a problem with it too bad. I met my current boyfriend and he was very understanding and appreciated that I was upfront about
everything. One snag we ran into...he didn't really have a bad attitude about
mental illnesses, but he hated doctors and didn't believe in taking medicines long term. That was just a family thing for him...his family never goes to the doctor or takes meds and here I am going to the doctor multiple times a month and taking a boatload of meds. We got past that thankfully. I guess my point is to really try to see how he feels about
these things and then decide on how to tell him. He might be hurt that you kept this all from him the whole time so try to be prepared for that. If he's an understanding guy he might be ok with it if you explain that it was hard for you, you didn't know how to do it, etc. If you guys aren't that serious then it probably wouldn't be a problem if it didn't work out, but I'm assuming it must be getting serious if you're considering telling him about
this. Keep us updated! I hope it all works out for you.
