I'll be seeing my dad and stepmum for the first time since I've had the fibro diagnosis tomorrow and I'm not really sure how to broach the subject with them. My relationship with my dad isn't strained exactly, but I don't tend to tell him about the medical side of my life pretty much at all, hell the first he really knew I was under investigation for HMS was after I was diagnosed with it. This time is a little easier because he's semi aware of some of the things which have been going on although I don't think I mentioned the possible fibro diagnosis.
With my mum it's always been a lot easier, my relationship with her is a lot better and I feel like I can talk to her without her thinking I'm exaggerating or... whatever. But with my dad... I guess I need a way of explaining it to him so he gets it.
Any suggestions would be welcome.
