I told Ben last night. I started thinking about it last night on the way home, and I realized that there would never be a perfect time to tell him (in my mind), so I needed to make a decision and just do it.
How do I feel now....RELIEVED!!! Ben was very sweet and understanding. He said he knew almost from the onset that there was something that I wasn't telling him. He went on to say, not that I was being deceptive, but that there was something more I had not shared with him. He knew of me going skydiving, and the other things I had planned for the summer, and in his mind wanted to know what the motivation was behind doing all these new and exciting things. He applauded me for being proactive about my health. I showed him pictures of what I looked like before.
It feels good to have that out in the open.
