Thanks! Yeah I’m just trying to be realistic about it and keep things in perspective. Who knows how many people you encounter every day who have it – it’s not something I used to even think about but now when I look at people I wonder! I’m hoping the day will come where I disclose to someone and he says “Oh no worries, I’ve got it too!” That’ll be pretty cool.
I’ve read a couple of inspiring blog posts, one where basically the girl was talking about how it benefited her in becoming more selective with the people she dates – people who were communicative, understanding, and who liked her enough to overlook a mild disease. So I’m trying to see the bright side.
