I hope everyone is going to have an awesome thanksgiving!
I had a question. How do you talk about itp in the initial phases of a relationship? I explained it to my ex-girlfriend after 6 months of being with each other and she was totally ok with it. I suspect one reason that she had gotten used to me so this small issue was negligible for her. She was the first gf that I opened this up for. During that time I was hinting to her that I should take some precautions with respect to the foods and drugs I use.
Now I'm dating someone (ugh, from a long distance) and it is pretty much a recent thing (less than a month). She found out that I had a medical exemption from conscription (which was mandatory back in our country) and asked me about it. I postponed it to sometimes we can talk, rather than chatting.
My fear is that since we have just gotten to know each other and it is the very first stage of the friendship, she might refuse me. I honestly don't care much since I would just move on to someone better
. This is something out of my control.
Anyway, how should I explain that to her? And to what extent shall I explain that to her? She has studied premed (and will enter medical college next year) and her parents are doctors and her sister is also a pharmacist, so they will know what I am talking about. Also, I wanted to know to what level does it make sense for her to ask questions about my medical history? I don't feel comfortable explaining the very little details.
