From what we know people struggled to come out to their close ones because of the idea of possible pity, trouble with employment and self-denial as well, when they would talk about it it would become real, but actually coming out could do more good for them like their behavior wouldn’t be misinterpreted, they can ask for help easily and be understood because of their condition, and their jobs would be protected because they can’t be fired because of a disease.

Palfreman’s first reaction was shocked, cause he was expecting the diagnosis his mom had about just a tremor, he took more than a year to adjust to it. He was first in denial, he didn’t tell anyone besides his wife, he tried escaping the disease by not accepting it. With time he did a full 180 turn and started reading and researching it as much as possible, decided to embrace the disease.
