Re: when and how to tell my teen kids

Dear Pos in Thailand,
Very good point you made. Why tell them at all ! The issue is that in order to save my relationship-marriage, my wife wants a scenario in terms of "what to say if one day they find out". I am kinda thorne between telling them myself directly and actively, just to be honest with them, or waiting until one day they find out through a lapsus, find my meds, or I am in an emergency situation where one of them has to go and get my meds, for example. But the main issue is that I want to be ready since my wife has this as a major obstacle to move on. She is not at all asking me to disclose and leaves it up to me but just does not wants to be prepared. She also has an issue with not being open and honest to them herself since she knows but no one else. This is probably different than when your girl friend knows (but she is not the mother of your children and has thus no parental link to them - or maybe I got it wrong since I do not know what her links with your kids are). And I am not so sure that younger people would really woory, they can get education about it, and already do at school. My older parents are a different story and them, I would not want to disclose to because of the worries they would have, especially since we love far away from each other and I am not around to reassure and educate them.
Take care.
