Thank you all so much for your helpful comments on my last post. It really helps hearing all of your experiences since I know you've been right where I am before. We have decided to share our struggles with our parents in an email. I am still deciding whether or not to share with my siblings. I sketched out some of my thoughts last night and while I know the wording still needs a little work, I think the overall message is good. I was hoping to get it sent out tonight, but then my in-laws announced that they were coming to visit us on Saturday. Um, we have plans, but ok. They do this all the time - it's really annoying. Now I'm wondering if we should wait to send them the email so we won't see them so soon after they get it. I'm probably being irrational but I'm worried if we see them so soon after telling them they won't be able to not ask us about it when they see us. I'm going to talk to J about it a bit tonight and then I guess we'll see.
Thanks again ladies - I really appreciate all your support!
