I have been living with the knowledge that I am a diabetic for a little over a month now but only my husband and mother know about it. I have yet to tell my 4 children because one of them is out of state right now and I want them all at home when I do tell them. I want to be able to answer their questions, gauge their expressions and get a sense of how they all are feeling in person. I won't be able to do this until Thanksgiving break. I guess my reluctance also stems from the fact that when I was diagnosed with pancreatitis, and then ended up in the hospital from a serious flare up, they all took it very hard. Now I have to burden them with more bad news about my health.
I don't have any plans to address this as a doom and gloom aspect in our lives but I am still at a lost as to how to approach the topic, mostly for my youngests sake. I have two 19 year olds, a 17 year old and my youngest is turning 13. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
