I was diagnosed ith Lupus, Scleroderma and Sjorgen's 12 years ago at age 42. I am now 2 years divorced with 2 children in college and grad school. My ex could not handle my diagnosis and that contributed to our divorce. Now am dating and wondering how other people (my age or younger) handle discussing this sensitive issue. For those divorced, in their 50's, the men are also divorced but seem to have this image of getting the perfect woman the second time around. I also am so conditioned to hide any problems as I did for my ex that I don't know how to discuss my disease without sounding like I am looking for attention.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
