MDJunction to me

imsoblue"I was completely bewildered when I received my diagnosis of HH and cirrhosis. For so many years I had been told that what I was feeling was due to "old age", and I am 61 years old. I knew nothing about hemochromatosis or what to expect and even my family doctor did not have a clue. I found MDJ when I started to search on the internet. I have received so much compassion and education here. I am most grateful that I had the support from the cirrhosis group when I had my first episode of HE. I now know what I need to do to try keep this from happening. (lactulose). I feel very close to the people here. My goal is to educate people about HH and to support those affected by it. I read people's posts and I can just sense when people are feeling that absolute bewilderment. Thank you so much for all that all of you do for others." (imsoblue)

This is the first time I have been in a relationship since I have been stable. (Fully 100% and medicated) It's a very different feeling. As normally in relationships, I get very obessed in the beginning than, by that drive the person away. I am trying so hard not to do that. It helps that she has some of the same tendancies as myself. Everything just feels very comfortable, I really like it, I have never felt this before. 

 On another note, it's weird when you look back and you THINK you were stable in that moment, and you realize now, you SO were not. My last relationship, I was extremely hypomanic, very intense, very over the top. Even though we broke up for different reasons, I am pretty sure it contributed to it. 

I am determined to make this work, no more of my old habits.
