I had the opportunity to be alone with my daughter this morning so I just came out & told her. I started off with asking her "would you make fun of someone with a disability?". She was a little confused at first then asked again if say she saw someone in a wheel chair or along that line would she be one of these mean people & make fun of them. Her reply as I thought was "hell no". So I started with my story of back problems & finally led into the problem I have & that it seems to be getting worst possibly due to stress. She really did not react one way or the other & she spent the rest of the morning helping me out side working in the yard even though I did not ask. I made a few jokes here & there about still being dry & not needing a change yet & she laughed a bit. She seems like she is fine with it all & dose not bother her. Next is my son...... this may be a bit harder to explain to him being a little younger & well, boys are a little less mature so I just need to catch him on one of his good days.
Feels good to be able to feel accepted in my own house.
I just told my son. He reacted the same as my daughter except that I could tell that he seemed a little uncomfortable talking about it so I just got to the point & left it at that. YAY no more having to be supper secretive about it & no more worries that I am crinkling to loudly.
