My parents come back from their trip to London tonight, where they’ve been visiting my family, and I’m considering telling them tonight. Bearing in mind the more and more I pluck up the courage to actually tell them tonight, the more and more nervous and sick I feel. I think I’ll probably chicken out last minute, but I luckily enough do have the at times useful, ability to just blurt things out whether I want to say them or not.
I say I have this wonderful yet not so wonderful ability, but the last time it actually came into effect was when I had to tell my dad I’d bought, and already set up a home, for a pet tortoise, regardless of him being very strict and adamant there were going to be no. more. pets. And even then, I had my mam’s approval of that so maybe that was a sort of reassurance at the time. Whatever.
I highly doubt my dad’s going to hear what I have to say and think, oh, just like another tortoise.. it’ll be okay. I’ve debated waiting to tell them but I really just need to know I have their support with this, which I’m sure I will, but this is still scary haha. There are a lot of things to consider that I really just know nothing about, and having them by side would be a massive relief.
Oh and last but not least, the doc recommended I did another test in a couple days just to see if the line was darkening and this whole thing was progressing.. I’d say it’s darkened.
Update after all of this kicks off anyway.
