Hi Everyone! I was diagnosed 3 weeks ago and still struggling to believe the Dr. is correct. I am 42. I have only told 1 of my sisters as I needed her to drive me to my MRI appt. and for support to hear the news at the Neurologist. My long time boyfriend was away during this time. My parents and other sister live 16 driving hours away and I have 2 kids, 23 and 19 that live very close by. I feel like I am lying by not telling hem but wanted more info. before I did. I have 4 more appointments this month and another MRI in 5 months. I have made the decision to fly out next weekend with my 1 sister and boyfriend to tell my parents and other sister. I will tell my kids when I am back and then a small group of friends. After that, it is what it is. I dont want to keep it a secret nor let this define me. I am very very close to my family and especially to my kids, who I had a very active lifestyle with. I would love any help from your thoughts and experiences as to how to handle this process of telling my family, especially my 2 kids who will google everything. Thank you.
