She Told Him!
from M.G.

BackstoryCan’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
