Shield vs Vulnerability

Recommended Posts

Hey all, this is my first post here. I was diagnosed a year and a half ago and spent most of that in a pretty dark place. Very dark, in fact. Lately, I’ve been feeling a lot better about my situation and am trying to see that there is still hope. 

Last weekend, I went out for a friends birthday and completely unexpectedly met the most amazing woman I have ever met. She is perfect to me in every way. It’s honestly the only time in my life that I’ve ever thought to myself “wow, maybe love at first sight does exist.” We’ve talked everyday and have had so much fun hanging out the last week or so. 

I want to disclose to her because I know the lifetime regret of running away from this situation will haunt me forever. I’m just terrified that if she decides to not take the risk, then I will go right back to that dark place I worked so god damn hard to get myself out of. Considering we are both in our early twenties, this is very likely. Does anybody have any experience with something like this? Thank you!
