Sorry if this is a thread somewhere, but I just wondered how many are partnered/married. Do you think your relationship is a benefit in your management/recovery or is the added person a stressor that make things more difficult? After a long time single I'm wondering about getting back into the dating pool, but curious how much to divulge and whether I'l be setting up for more heatbreak (honestly I don't think I can take that again-it's been 6 years to get over the last ex). How did you tell your SO about your illness? How did you come to terms with it together?
