Dating with chronic illness

But I assure you that the rest of the world sees the entire package. Would you date someone who's dealing with this kind of thing all of the time? You're not asking anyone to "take you on." You're not looking to be someone's burden.

Despite these personal epiphanies, I find I have a blind spot in regards to the dating world.

My illness is always going to be in the picture, and there is no simple 'cure.' My fear of becoming a burden leads me to choose to be alone and it makes me sad.

How should I approach dating in regards to my health? I would like to be able to share myself with someone despite all my health-related baggage.

We're all difficult to date for one reason or another.

Those who are always healthy might not appreciate life like you do.
