My 2 children are 30 and 24 and when I was diagnosed with MS they were 21 and 14, they were so used to a Mom that did everything for them that the dx of MS they just didn't get and still don't. My son who lives in CA never even asks me how I am when he calls, he usually calls to talk about his life and update me on my grand daughter. Don't get me wrong, I love to hear about his life and my beautiful grandchild, but as time passes and I we all get a little older and my MS progresses I truly feel that I can't say anything to my family about my condition or how I am feeling. I just always put on a happy face and pretend that everything is wonderful. Any suggestions on how to approach this subject? I had an easier time talking to these kids about sex and drugs for goodness sakes!
