FRUITYMOODY asks: "I met someone and the relationship is blossoming. We have deep intimacy which means we are very open and honest with each other. My question is, why can't I come clean about my hospitalization, being on meds to maintain, etc. I've been feeling it out but just cannot bring myself to tell her. I can't see exactly what scares me...but the word shame comes to mind. This is someone I can see myself with for the long haul. After coming out of a horrible situation which was controlling, codependent and abusive I decided to open myself up for something positive. I so scared that I am going to screw this up by not coming clean about my mental health. Can someone share a similar experience or share their thoughts about this?"
