You the one thing this disease has done for me is make me humble. I remember beening arrogant and prideful befor seeing those bumps all over. Then I broke down didn't want to accept it, I scoured my medical books searching for other reason as to what the root of them was. By the time I had my test done iI had already accepted it and pushed forward.
It is truly a humbling lesson ... I was the same. Now I feel the pain.....
Humbling I always describe it like that
You can look at it this way too, anyone that isn't worth keeping a long term relationship with isn't going to stick around after you tell them what you have but any one that truely cares and loves you will accept it and support you through it
