I was in relationship that had many red flags but I overlooked them because I felt I had zero room to judge someone else for any flaw they had since I was diagnosed with H. Long story short, I told them about my situation. It was the first person I had talked to and told about it since having it. I guess you could say I batted 1.000. I didn't have to worry about being rejected. She was very calm and even unphased about it. However, one argument happened and it was thrown in my face. Before I had mentioned that to her, I had many things thrown in my face from time to time but for this to happen after I opened up to her kind of urked me. I left and went home and she proceeded to text saying I treated her like crap and i'm thinking, you just threw something very personal in my face. Now I feel like I should have just dealt with it because she accepted me and I wouldn't have to face a future rejection.


Should I feel like I should have stayed because she accepted me? Is that a reason to overlook everything that anyone can do because I am flawed? That is how I feel.

Yeah, I know but it is still tough thinking that maybe it was me and I could have done something different. I guess also knowing that i'm back in the situation of having to face the rejection again. At 37, never married, no kids, it is just tough because I wanted all of those things. Thanks for the reassurance.
