I wonder the same sometimes, I'm 23, diagnosed at 12. The dating thing has never been easy, especially middle school/high school when my health was not so great.
I've been relapse-free for nearly three years, I healthy and happy! I don't anticipate another attack since I've been taking care of myself with diet and acupuncture, sometimes I don't even feel like I even have MS.
I've always been a private person and, since I've been healthy for so long, few people know about my having MS. I fear being exposed in a relationship and, again, being left for something out of my control. I automatically think guys won't be able to handle me once they know I have MS so I write them off pretty quickly. Man, I need help! I would be interested in hearing how others have done with dating.
Wow! Diagnosed at 12???? I couldn't begin to imagine going through what I'm going through now that young!
As far as the relationship thing is concerned my only opinion would be that you should avoid "tricking" someone into a relationship, by which I mean, don't let them fall in love with you and then two years later find out you have MS, that will cause some problems lol, I don't think that it's fair but again, THAT IS JUST MY OPINION, everyone has to do what they think is right for them.
MY SECOND OPINION LOL: I think as a woman you have a better chance of finding someone who will love you and take care of you even when you are sick but as a man I don't think my chances of finding someone like that are as good because what woman wants to get involved with a semi-disabled guy?...
I always told my ex-girlfriend that if the tables had turned and IT WAS HER who had got MS that I would have been by her side taking care of her, comforting her, and loving her 24/7 but she told me that was unrealistic... She couldn't be there for me the way I Needed her to be, and so, I left her because I know there is someone else out there who will show me just a little bit more love than that but of course I wonder will I ever find them and how long will it be before I do find them?
