what a loser he is, better to find out now. Everyone gets whacked with something......i'd rather it be UC for me than a lot of other things. I waited a while to tell my then boyfriend (now husband, I was 24 at the time) I just did not understand it myself fully, I took pills and I was fine for a very long time. For me if I were single now, I would wait until I knew it was a serious relationship or if I knew it would be an issue (meaing going away together while flaring) and if it comes up b/c you have to take your pills then so be it and if he runs and can't handle that, he probably can't handle much else in life either. Think of the future, what if you had a child who had diabetes or something (just throwing something out there) is he going to run away then too?
My husband was good about
it and always has been (as long as I keep him in the loop and don't keep it all inside then flip out on him, it works both ways = ) not to say it is not difficult at times.
Having UC I do everything I want and let me tell you out of most of my friends I do more than them, I try not to let it hold me back. Also, from what my husband tells me about
his friends complaining about
their wives, I am an angel (or maybe he is trying to stay on my good side = ).
One theory is that I have more time to worry about
'real things' than spending time thinking about
things he is doing wrong or not enough of and giving him a hard time over it (I mean that to be funny but also true). We are also both very indepedent people.
So basically, just b/c we have UC doesn't make us any less and you should never feel that way and no one should ever make you feel that way.
I would explain it the way you want to but also try to make joke to help it go down, i.e. "there will always be good magazines in the bathroom" or something.......
