It looks like you might be new here, so I wanted to take a moment to tell you a little about me and my blog.My name is Julie Ryan and I live with Fibromyalgia.
There’s so much vulnerability and shame around chronic pain.I've chosen to live positively, to fight back with diet and lifestyle changes and it's made a huge difference for me.The difference between living all my days in bed, and actually LIVING.I’ve had experiences where I learnt sometimes it’s better to say it up front in case the person doesn’t want to pursue a relationship with someone who is chronically unwell.On the flipside, I also learnt that being upfront about it may frighten them off before they get a chance to know you better.Very little (if any) research has been completed on how chronic pain/ illness impact new relationships or dating life in general.
So, I applaud the Rehab Lab for taking a look at this.Those of us in committed relationships feel we have more social support than those who are not.That increased social support makes things much easier as we face chronic illness, we experience less stress, and better physical and emotional health.let alone when to tell them that sex may be off the table because of that illness (or at least may be much more limited than they would hope).I do wonder sometimes it is easier to start a new relationship with them knowing what to expect than it is to change those expectations once they’ve already been established as part of the relationship? Recently, the great folks at the Rehab Lab at UNB sent me a poster for a study that they’ve been working on.and chances are you’ve got to fill in the blanks on the medical history earlier than they even get the full personal history.
