There are many reasons why people are either fearful or nervous to try romantic relationships with a chronic illness. I thought the best way to explain this would be to share some tips that I have found along the way.
I met Daniel properly in 2014. He had read a lot of my blogs before we even started talking, so he knew all about my condition.
