I understand how your boyfriend feels not wanting to talk about it... I was diagnosed in July too, and didn't want to talk about it at all... In fact, I am still surprised at how active I have been on this board. Aside from whining in my livejournal about all of this stuff and the people in this forum, I really only talk to my best friend, and drive him absolutely nuts... Even my family, who I see everyday and work with doesn't know most of what is happening to me physically or mentally.
Something my best friend told me, that made an impact was, he knew it was happening to me, but, I wasn't the only one going through it. It was all new and scary to everyone around me, too. I wonder if he understands that aspect of it? And maybe, if he did he'd change his perception.
Part of the reason I don't like to talk about it, is because (believe it or not) I really am not the type that talks about myself. And never have been. I typically solve everyone else's problems and deal with mine on my own. So, I flash my trademark smile, and everything is fine, and everyone is none the wiser. Sometimes, it's easier that way...
I really hope that he will open up to you... Can only imagine how you must be feeling.
I hope your boyfriend starts feeling better soon!
