How can I tell my boyfriend I drink medicine for seizures?

Open and Honest

Dear Erma,
Lots of people take medicine to prevent seizures. You’re worried that he is going to react badly and maybe leave you, right? If he loves you and if he is the right guy, you’re going to have to tell him anyway, so why not just bring it into the open?

Explain what you have and how it is treated. Tell him what doctor you see and encourage him to become an expert on your condition. What’s the worst that could happen? If he freaks out and bolts, he wasn’t the right guy and he doesn’t deserve you. But what if he just takes it in stride and wants to help? Now that’s a guy worth keeping.
Your medical condition is what it is. It’s a part of your life, but it is not who you are.
