My 8 year old son was great after my dx, but he did not ask any questions about why I was no longer going to work etc. My wife is a nurse and an active player in my health care, so we have talks every night on treatment options, symptoms, you name it. My son has been overhearing all of our conversations at night. Recently he has developed the same symptoms in his mind as a result of all of this talk of ms in the house.

Anyone have a simular experience or advise?
