I personally think it is really tough to make friends after diagnosis. I definitely know it was not easy for me after being diagnosed, I was always looked at differently, treated differently, and always made fun of. It took a long, long while to realize that It did not matter what others thought any more, just complete what had to be done. After a while it has brought me to the topic of dating. It is very difficult, first I had no real friends at all and never really knew what to do with this feeling. There was a time when I actually got the courage to tell this girl what I thought of her but, she just told me she did not feel the same way. Later on I find out she ends up with another guy who is not physically handicapped. I just saw this most compassionate, emotionally, lovely, clip (click here to view this clip). I just hope there is much more people like this out there.
I would love to read what did you do when this came up? What do you thiink? How would you deal with it?
