Success story from Bevo0106
Well actually, I ended up getting back together with the girl I had been dating when I got my diagnosis. I think she just needed some time to process the information, become educated on the subject, and figure out her priorities. Luckily, she realized that I was her priority and that my diagnosis wasn't enough of a reason to end things. So in that sense, it should give people hope that it's not the end of the world.
That said, I have become friends with someone I met on the site. The only thing we had in common was our diagnosis, but now we have become good friends.
