I was just asked out by a dear friend of mine and the catch is… She's disabled. Now I have no idea what the full extent of her disability is (as far as I can tell… She completely cognitively aware yet she cannot speak, she can sign and understand a conversation… I have no idea if she's IC, or if she can walk at all… The only time I've seen her, she's been in her wheelchair although the rehab hospital has been working with her with a walker...
I myself being disabled I don't know if there's any way that I can take care of her on my own although if I really wanted this to work I could get a nursing aide to take primary care of her
she's been suicidal and very depressed.... The mother sent me a message on Facebook
(The school she's in keeps her til she's 21.She's 18.)The Mom: Cause Kaitlin loves you....
Me: I... I know she does but I don't want to hurt her.
The Mom: Kait is going through a tough time. Every one has graduated and she's still there. She's decided that people don't want to be her friends because of her disability. Her speech as you know, limits her and people don't take the time to really get to know her. They don't take the time to realize how intelligent she is and that she has feelings too She's really sad right now.
Due to her instability.. I don't want to hurt her... My ex-girlfriend is really still tugging at my heart and I don't want to have to break Kait's whether or not my girlfriend comes to her senses are not... I just don't think it'll work out
where do I go from here?
