Well, I have some pretty darn BIG issues myself...so it could be a competition..lol!
I had been going out with a gal for 2 months before she told me she was on Paxil. That actually brought us closer together. The relationship fell apart mostly because of me and my deep depression, but at the time, she was still doing the 'party party' thing in her early 20's...and I then was in no mood to do that kinda stuff. It lasted for a few years, and it does hurt sometimes to think back to it.(It is part of my "..before I got REALLY, REALLY ill" life.)
I think I am finnaly confident enough to somewhat deal with 'rejection'...as I have recently...and I did what was best for me...just cut it right off and moved on..period.
As I have moaned about here on the board before, and that is I wish *women* would make the first move. I can't stand the little 'games'..and the "oh..he must like me...I am going to flirt with him just for now" (and f*ck up his mind even more!)
See how cyncial and jaded I have become?..lol!
