>One day, he'll notice those pill bottles

Well, in my case, it would be "what's that thing stuck to your shoulder?"

My money's on Type I diabetes, fwiw. Islet allografts transduced with antiapoptotic
gene(s) to protect against immunological attack. Slight enhanced risk of neoplasia could
be averted with drug-dependant cytotoxic gene (TK/gancyclovir, maybe), should the need arise.
Many years away, though. Gene therapy of any brain abnormality is vastly more complicated.

As far as disclosure goes, like I said, to each their own. My question then is, if it's
not a big deal, why not discuss depression as soon as it's been established that this is
someone you can trust? How do you establish trust if you don't discuss these things?

> Before the CoE, who wants to wager on this: Which disroder will be the first to be actually cured by modern, developing treatment strategies such as gene therapy and the like: depression or diabetes? For the sake of fairness, you can specify one type of depression (DSM-IV category) and/or one type of diabetes (I or II). I'll call my bookie in Vegas to see what the odds are...
> Now Racer, take this for what it's worth, but I say go on with the "blunder blindly ahead" strategy, which tends to work miraculously when you don't pay much attention to it. Move in. One day, he'll notice those pill bottles. Maybe you'll notice his. You'll be sneaking peeks at all sorts of things anyway. Eventually, it'll pop up somehow. But once you're in that economic codependence mode, there may be all the more incentive to smooth any ruffles.
> On the other hand, there is that ageless advice: If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it was always yours. If not, hunt it down and kill it. =^P
