Do you guys worry that your health problems will ever be “too much” for like your partner. That’s been my most recent anxiety- as I keep constantly having a new health issue pop up I’m worried he will get sick of taking care of me.

      Yes. I actually broke up with my boyfriend because of it but than got back together that day because he is very understanding and loves me. If the person you are with cares and is a good person, they wont run because of your health problems.

      Yes! But the right person will not judge you for it. They will help you and try to understand as best they can.

      I think these thoughts are valid and normal, but try not to let them get the best of you (easy to say, I know🙄). I will say, finding the right person is key 🥰

      I learned something that may be helpful. Thinking your partner thinks they'll be better without you is taxing on the brain and positive talk is also hard for us. Ive learned just asking things like, 'what do you think when you think of me at work?' or something like that, that way they can fill your head with things like, 'your smile,' or 'your laugh/jokes' it's not a cure but it helps!

      I always worry about this. Not so much that I think my significant other would leave me but I just feel guilty about it. I live at home and have my parents take care of me. I can’t work. I know there is someone out there who will love me but I think it would be unfair of me to let that happen.

      Yes all the time. I’ve been cheated on multiple times because of my illnesses and it was easy for them to because of how much school I was missing due to flare-ups. I can count on both hands how many times I’ve been screwed over by my illness in this regard. It sucks and it’s definitely made me not want to try again for a very long time, but I do believe that when you find the right person they’ll realize it’s a part of who you are and be kind towards it.

      You just got to make sure you talk about it before it gets to the point where they find out the bad way. If you prepare them and let them know what will happen, it will keep you from getting too attached if they run. For the people who wont run, it prepares them and they will know what to expect:)

      Yea I’ve had these thoughts before. Even though currently I’m not in a relationship, but I think we just have to let our partners know how important they are to us and how much we truly appreciate them:)
