My mom got cancer a few months ago and basically lives in the hospital. I've told some of my closest friends but it's only now i've realized who my real friends are. Some of them haven't even asked me how i am doing. Not that i want all the attention, but a "how are you?" would be nice sometimes.

  • My friends didn't ask how I was doing when my grandma was dying of cancer. But I'm glad they didn't. They knew I would start crying if they asked and they knew that going through the motions and pretending life was normal was what would help me keep my sanity... So your friends might be trying to spare you. If you want to talk to them, just talk to them.

  • I had a friend and his mom had cancer too, but he didn't like to talk about it, so we didn't ask him very often, but we were still there for him :)
