She Told Him!
Backstory: Can’t Let a Boyfriend Get Close
I wanted to thank you for your warm response. It brought tears to my eyes. I wanted to write back and tell you that I took the chance and told "Donovan." It's been and is the most amazing thing I have ever experienced. He is completely accepting and loving. Even better, I started going to the tanner again and I am getting clearer all the time. It's like some kind of miracle I can't understand and don't want to question. Telling him about psoriasis WAS the hardest and most important thing I think I've ever done, and I have done a lot. I was prepared to be rejected — and that could have happened — but it didn't.
I don't know what is in the future for "Donovan" and me, but right now we are just having a blast; I feel filled with gratitude for life. It's been so wonderful.
I would've missed this if I hadn't taken the risk and I know that taking that risk has changed me.
Thank you again for your words, -M.G.
Ed’s Response: I’m extremely happy for you, M.G. I know those folks who sent emails posted here this month will be happy for you, too. As my mother — who loves black and white musicals from the 30s and 40s — would say, “Oh! It’s wonderful! It ends right!” -Ed
