About Me: Male, 53, Victoria, BC, member since Nov 2005
Diagnosed with Epilepsy when I was 8. Got sexually fixed to avoid passing it on. Epilepsy is NOT an STD, but back then they didn't know. They didn't need my consent. Just a signature from my Parents.
Sent to a Home for the Handicapped where I got sexually abused by a Gay Caregiver. Called the Police but No Witness = No Case. No such thing as DNA testing back then.
Brain Surgery done in 2003 (I was 41) stopped the Seizures. Now living on my own. Hard to find a girlfriend, as they expect a guy in his 40's to have a good job, nice car, nice house, and sufficient money for vacations.
Counselling said you can't change the way other people think, as that's their choice, not yours. I want to experience being in Love, but I can't change people's opinions of me.
People have just told me to stay out of the way. Now in a wheelchair, from a vehicle that hit me, makes even more people turn away. Music group I was in, decided to find someone else.
It hurts, but you can't change how others choose to think about you!
Hey there! Are you still on here? Moved to the Dominican Republic in 2010. Moved back to Calgary a year ago. I just read your note. 4 years late!! How are you doing now. Walking? Doing well? I'm a grandmother now. :) Let me know if you are still on here so we can catch up.
