Are Men interested in someone with a chronic illness?
I'm a retired RN in my early 50's, and live on a long-term disability policy due to chronic illness; I work very hard to keep in check. It is not an emotional issue but physical -Mixed connective tissue disease.(lupus & gastroparesis) I am divorced because my husband did not want a sick wife. He was a doctor. We divorced in our 5th year of marriage, shortly after I was diagnosed with lupus. I am independent, own my own home, no kids, however with new drugs and treatments I am able to live a pretty normal life. However I can not work due to the autoimmune response kicks in when it wants to and does not make me a reliable worker. I have tried to return to work several times in different occupations. I am personable and sincere, and certainly not dead! I swim daily, do yoga and eat more healthy than the average individual. I volunteer on a regular basis.
