I recently met a man who has Cutaneous Mastosytosis. Several years ago he was hospitalized for a year straight and in and out for three more years. He is an amazing person and I have fallen hard for him. Here's the problem, he has a lot of triggers. And I mean alot!! I have stayed at his place for a few nights and his symptoms flared up. We tried washing everything, I used his special soaps, eliminated food, all to no avail. He is really depressed abut this as am I. We want to continue this relationship but he looks like he is reverting into depression and will continue a life living alone with minimal interactions.
So I guess what I want to know from this entry is how others deal with this condition, how are relationships affected, and examples of how to introduce new things into a safe environment?
