So I am curious, when and how did everyone with a romantic partner tell them they had a chronic illness and/or autism? Or how did you disclose that you were in the process of it? I mostly am just curious but when I do get into a relationship I want to be prepared with how I would go about that. It feels like itd be hard to do it early since you haven’t committed to each other yet but I’d also want them to know early.

      I didn't tell him, he told me 😂 I got even though when I told him he had ADHD. I also had a conversation with him about my disability and how I would eventually end up needing a wheelchair full-time and he was fine with it. unfortunately he very suddenly got to keep his word a few months later, but that was four and a half years ago and he's still keeping that promise so. I definitely lucked out lol

      For me, it naturally came up on one of our early dates. When talking about our pasts, things that my health impacted such as school came up. It started with just by the way I have some health issues, and then over the first few dates I told more a little at a time. And then once we talked about a lot of it, I asked him if he had any questions and made it clear I was happy to answer. I hope that helps, good luck!!

      I mainly just sat him down and talked about it. He was super understanding!
