However here is the thing which is *really* bothering me:
My family. I don't really mind if Fragile-X is the root cause of our 'family curse'. I was the first to admit that there has ever been a problem, and have been rather unpopular for that! But OMG, my family will *freak* if it's genetic! Not only that; but because I could potentially be the one raising the alarm, I will be perceived as having caused the issue. The messenger will be hung, drawn and quartered! I know I am jumping way ahead of myself here, because we haven't even *tested* him yet, but I am tying myself up in knots about it!
So here is my question: At what point should one test for Fragile-X, and what are the indicators?
