Hi Will. Wow, that went about as well as it's possible for a disclosure to go. What a weight off your shoulders it must be.
1) It will never be mentioned again; or
2) They will have a "Part B" conversation with me at their convenience and after they have processed the news together.
I'm betting on the latter. I expect another talk within a week. My parents certainly like to prolong things...so I do come by it honestly.
Yeah that's that kicker isn't it? My mom had a "part B" conversation with me about a week after I told her in front of my T. It was equally as awkward and uncomfortable as the T session was and wound up mostly being her questioning if I was absolutely sure the CSA could have really happened or not. My dad also discussed it with me separately that week and was less denial ridden but the conversation was no less awkward and uncomfortable. It hasn't come up since then. I often wonder if it's as much of an elephant in the room for them as it is for me.
Good luck with your own "part b" conversation or with wherever this goes from here. The important thing is, it's out. After 27 years, it's out. The hard part is over. Congrats on this huge achievement and on taking this huge step. Take care buddy. Peace,
