Hi everyone, so I am new to Scleroderma, I honestly had got to the point where I thought maybe it was just me, maybe it is all in my head. I have been struggling and pushing through for so long. Now I have a diagnosis, I am trying to be kinder to myself. What I am struggling with is do I tell my kids? They are age 11 and almost 7. I know they see my struggles, but then sometimes they don’t, sometimes they are angry I don’t want to jump in a freezing pool, or I am tired, again. Part of me wants them to understand I’m not being a spoil sport, but then an equal part of me thinks they are kids and this is not something they should worry about.

    I’m literally torn. What did you do?
