Telling my family
      04/23/11 02:32 PM

I was recently diagnosed on April 14, 2011. I have since told my best friend, my partner and my sister and brother-in-law. Besides my parents... these are the closest people to me in the world. My situation is..... I am terrified on how to tell my parents. They have been divorced since I was 7 yrs old. When I came out to my mother... her reaction was one of denial! Her fears were that THIS exact situation would happen (but I'm not going to elaborate any further on that issue). So I am terrified! I want to tell my parents so that they know what is going on, but I live so far away from both of them that I don't want to do it over the phone, and I want them to see that I am still okay! But I am also terrified of the rejection I could possibly receive from them! I just don't know what to do, I am very close with both of them, but I just don't want to keep them out of my life! Please help!!!!!!
