We never told anyone about the possibility of my wife having HD and we didn't tell the kids till a couple of weeks before my wife had her test. I was frightened to use the message board and that was a mistake, there are lots of people out there who will help get you through your bad days.

Take it easy, we're thinking of you and your family, keep your chin up!
