Upon starting a new relationship that I hope will be meaningful and lasting, I want to be honest about a health issue but don't want to scare the person away by disclosing too early. I also would never want them to feel as though I have withheld information or tried to trap them. I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis 5 years ago. Although I have had minimal issues (1 relapse in 5 years and was minimal) and I am on preventive medicine as well as taking excellent care of myself, I feel it isn't something I want to hide from anyone. The disease is so complex based on the individual, that I may never have a problem again. So, I don't dwell on the diagnosis, I just take care of myself and stay educated. No one has any indication what will happen to them tomorrow, and with MS, there is no certain of the worst case scenario for anyone. Such is the unknown, we can leave our house and get hit by a car, therefore, I can't live my life worrying. But that is me. So I am worried about how a potential partner may react and would like to be prepared for the conversation, I just don't really know when the right time is. In the beginning so they have a chance to check out early or after they get to know me and we are convinced we want to be involved? .I am looking for feedback about when to talk about this and any other feedback that can make this conversation the least uncomfortable for both.
