I'm single right now. I want a serious relationship with a boyfriend, but I'm not sure it's fair to put him through my illnesses and everything that implies. Thoughts??

Fibromyalgia (FM)

Generalized pain

Depression

    If you find your person, be totally honest with them. I helped my husband do research on my health conditions and he understands a lot more than I give him credit for sometimes. He can usually tell when a fibromyalgia flare up is about to happen.

    I agree with Yaya. But, also be aware that there are also people that do not care to go thru your health conditions. In my case, I have several health issues. After my husband and I had been married almost 20 years, he decided he couldn't continue handling my problems. We stayed good friends, even though it took me a few years to get beyond the pain. Then, right after he, my 28 year old grandson, and I decided to become roommates, he lost half of his leg and can no longer work. Hmmm.

    When you find the right person, be totally honest about your illness. Help them to research it so they can learn all about it.

    Hi. I thought the same way before me and my partner met. When you find the right person, they will do everything in their power to understand more about your illnesses. For example. My partner always does research. I’m so not used to someone actually caring about me and how I feel. Knowing that someone you love actually wants to better and will help you through everything is the best feelings. I wish you the best.

    I TOTALLY 110% agree with Brandonxbean!! My husband from the time we met, to even now he always tries to help me to do better and he actually cares and he can tell when something is about to happen with my mood. I had never had that before and I was terrified to be with him when we first met because I didn't want to drag him through my mental state. But when you find your person, nothing matters they will be there to help and love you through thick and thin! I wish you the best 💕

    I have PCOS, generalized panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, seasonal effectiveness disorder and depression. When I met my boyfriend I laid it all out on the table. If someone truly loves you they will love you through everything. You will find someone. I promise.

    As long as you’ll be honest with him and let him know what he’s getting into, I believe it’s fair.
