2012 Reflection

As 2012 comes to a close, there's so much good I've done as I do so much as structure keeps it together for me, but one thing I have trouble with is finding a man willing to work with me when it comes to dating. First off is finding someone who you are attracted to. So many guys meet me, but when it comes to the Bipolar, most don't try, they share that they have before and don't want to again, valid and honest, so I wish them well wishes and hope I touched them somehow, in that maybe when dating again and meet another man dually diagnosed they will say okay I'll try again. Rejection is hard at any age, but you need to get up and live another day, don't isolate, I know it is hard, I live it!!! So for those who have met me and tried-thank you, let us both keep trying.  
If you know someone living with HIV or both HIV and Bipolar and single--REACH OUT TO THEM, a phone call, HUGS ARE GOOD.
