Well, her reaction was surprising to me " Hun, its not that big of a deal. I love you no matter what " kinda thing.
She works in a nursing home and has to deal with a lot of how shall we say, less than sanitary jobs. So I thought if I told her it would push her away, but she seemed happy that i was honest with her.
Ahh, I had felt bad that i didn't tell her earlier and she reassured me it was okay. Feels like a weight off my shoulders! ^ ___ ^
