My boyfriend has a medical condition called ankylosing spondylitis. It's a form of arthritis that can cause the spine to fuse together. It's currently in the dormant phase and is not active, however. He was truthful and told me before we started getting into a relationship, though I didn't think about it seriously at the time.
Now that I have dated him for about 8 months, I am getting worried when I think about the future with him. Some of the symptoms could prove to be very problematic for our relationship, and I'm not 100% certain what to expect. I've remained with him because I am serious about us.
Have you ever been in this type of situation? Would you date someone with a medical condition?
