I think many of us with cystic fibrosis (CF) have built up emotional walls around ourselves.
They are our shields blocking the unwanted invasions from people’s judgment, perhaps even people’s concerns.
You can follow-up with something like, “I don’t see this as something that defines me, and if I need help, please leave it to me to ask.” Know when to give your partner space.
Even if you deliver a perfect speech about your condition, it is still possible to experience that ‘awkward moment’ following your disclosure.
If things were going well up until the time you told them, keep in mind that they rejected your health condition, not you.
At the end of the day, it means that they were not the one.
These walls make it difficult and usually impossible for those wanting to get close to us to break down.
You can leave a simple voicemail indicating that you have been thinking about them, and you are looking forward to seeing them again. A good person will listen and be kind and not judge, but if cystic fibrosis is something they can’t live with, that doesn’t make them a bad person, it just makes them a bad match.
