Fibro Is the devil

Hey all. 
Wanna ask anyone out there dealing with disability. my case is im partially sight and have fibromyalgia. Do you struggle to meet people? 

Im 33 and have had my dosabilities for 4 years now. i try to make the best of life as is now but one thing i struggle with is relationships. dont get me wrong im confident to approach people and im lucky in that i do get asked on dates etc. the problem is i cant commit to anything. i take ill on dates or before them and let people down. its gotten that iv pretty much stopped dating as its too hard to keep to commitments. Im also gay which limits the market somewhat. 

People say youll meet someone that understand etc but i dunno. I am happy in my own skin but i do miss having someone. my ex did a runner when i got sick. meh! So do you lovely people have these problems. do u feel not worthy or able to date? Am sure loads are. and if youve overcome this how did you go about it.  appreciate your time reading this. 

much love
