• If your date had a chronic condition, how would you want them to go about telling you?
Asking yourself the above questions can help you understand what you’re feeling and how to talk about it.
Having someone to rely on, and to be a source of support, is important when you have psoriatic disease. While there are no commandments or set-in-stone rules to abide by when dating with a chronic condition, here are five things that have worked for me.
I used to look for external sources to help fill the gap I had in my life after being diagnosed.Sure, a relationship can bring much happiness to your life, but if you’re looking for someone to make you feel better about yourself and your diagnosis, this isn’t the way to go.I challenge you to look at yourself in the mirror and accept everything about you.Don’t look for a relationship to distract you from the pain you may have; use a relationship to help support you in your already chronically fabulous life.Before I actively went back into the dating world, I took some time to assess my situation and realized I need someone who understands that support is a key piece to the relationship puzzle. Perhaps you need someone who will understand that you spend the majority of your paychecks on medical bills or someone who will stick up for you when you have to cancel plans because you’re not feeling well.Then, once I received a diagnosis, I went through a period of being extremely ashamed.
