Response from Dr. Frascino


If indeed you are not trying to be "nosiy" and "just 'went' to help," I suggest you have a heart-to-heart talk with your relative. The information is his or hers to share with whomever he or she chooses to share it with, when and if he or she is ready. The best you can do is make sure the relative realizes you are willing to listen and help, no matter what the problem may be.
