Dating with chronic illness Adult dating photo gallery

Rated 3.87/5 based on 553 customer reviews

To say that this illness has changed my life would be an understatement.It has virtually transformed my outlook on life to be more positive and open to change.“What if he (or she) can’t accept me the way that I am? ” “I don’t think I’m good enough for him (or her).” I’ve had all of these thoughts cross my mind — and it’s terrible.Each time I find myself repeating negative statements, I watch my thoughts and analyze why I am thinking what I’m thinking.

In this week’s video, I speak with Photis Eliadis, a psychologist and fellow thalassemia major patient living in Cyprus.Finding the right person to enter into a relationship with can be tough for anyone.For those who have a chronic illness and/or disability, the idea of dating can feel downright depressing.Without going into the boring details I can tell you that this condition is not life threatening (for which I am very very grateful) but does require occasional rounds of IV drug therapy.I also deal with moderate to severe pain on a daily basis, which can be difficult at times but I am much better at handling it than I used to be.
