Perhaps just as important as how you deliver the news is where. There’s no need to make a big plan. Instead, casually mix it into the conversation. If your partner asks you on a hike and you’re not up for it, tell them why and suggest an alternative. Focusing on what you can do normalizes your condition and makes it seem less daunting. You may have arthritis, but it doesn’t define you!
