Valerie-I'm so sorry to hear that happened...as if relationships aren't difficult enough we have this disease thrown in to really see. But on the bright side at least it shows us who is strong enough to be our significant other. I'm doing all right though. Things are a still just a little off because it's such a huge blow to my self-esteem which I think you definitely understand. I just have a lot to come back from with what happened between my fiance and I...definitely made me feel less than worth it. And yeah the insensitive comments I just..don't know what to say...I guess I know that a lot of people still don't understand so I can give them that, but I just wish people would take the time to learn about these things you know? I hope you're doing all right...keep me updated on all of that. I just hate that that happened to you :(
Well I feel bad in a way, because he has been through a lot with me over this past year, but he has never been sick in his life so he just doesn't seem to be able to understand how much it can affect your mood. He called me after and told me he wanted to work things out and he was just worried that I wasn't interested in him, but I'm giving him a really hard time about
it because lately it seems like he's been on the edge of breaking up with me all the time, and seems to be getting worked up over everything I say, and I told him that the last thing I want to deal with is more drama. We'll see what happens there though, I know I'll be fine either way. I'm pretty strong when it comes to emotional stuff!
Is everything sorted out between you and your fiance now? I remember reading your thread that you made a couple of weeks ago. I really hope so, because from what I've read, you two have been through a lot and seem to have a pretty good dynamic to your relationship. I also get frustrated about
people not taking the time to learn about
my disease though, my dad is a huge culprit there, but he's a busy guy so I can understand. My mom has read up on it a little bit and is more sensitive to me health wise than emotionally because she has epilepsy and has been through a lot with it. The guy I was with TRIED to read up, but even then he just seems to have a hard time understanding all of the implications of a chronic illness. I'm the type to explain anything that people want to know about
what I'm going through though, I tend to be very verbal about
it with my friends and family because it helps keep me calm.
Thanks for the reply and I hope you're doing well too. I know you've gone through a lot lately and you really don't deserve it!
