How do people manage a relationship when you feel like crap most of the time

Look I'm not in a relationship atm but sometimes I feel it would be lovely to find someone just to hold me a say everything will be ok. The sad thing is I'm not sure I could give much back atm. How do you go on when you don't feel great a lot of the time. I don't want to live a lie and pretend everything is ok, I do this enough at work and in front of my friends. Any advice would be appreciated

Does anyone else have white fingernails with pink at the top

My brother noticed my fingernails and asked how long they had been like that. They are predominantly white with a pink band at the top. I also have vertical grooves in them. Anyone else have this. Just wondered if this was something to do with IBS.
