When you work up the courage to tell, be confident and optimistic. Using a fearful or depressing tone can make your partner feel the same way about your condition. That might lead to him or her to worry about your future together and think you’re unable to cope with hardship or change. Share your confidence in managing your condition and plans for a healthy, happy future despite challenges that may happen along the way.
