  1. These are great points Michael. In fact, I think I’ll write about it — how to reveal to others who love you what your hiding has been like for you, and how changing or “unmasking” may impact them.
    As far as your chronic disease and it’s potential relationship with stress, from the job and/or from trying to maintain your mask, I’ve seen as a therapist many examples of a strong mind/body connection. How much or how little that can occur is something you and your medical provider can discuss. But from a psychological point of view, it certainly could have an impact.
    Thanks once again for contributing and commenting. I’m delighted my words are helpful to you and your family.
