I will keep it from my family for as long as possible. We are a very close family and I'm talking about my whole family from my uncles, ants my parents, sister, brother even my exs family. We are all very close and I've lived through a lot of pain and heartache because of family dying from cancer. Everyone suffers with you and they start to treat you like you are already dead. I would tell them as soon as my systems gets real bad and I know that I won't be able to hide it from them anymore and in that way I know that they won't have to suffer to long before I finally dy. I don't want a funeral. They must cremate me because that is not so dramatic as being berried.
I think the longer you wait to tell someone news like that the more it will hurt the loved ones I would tell them when I found out so I can spend as much time with them as possible! I sm s very caring person and I hope you are ok and you are just wondering about these questions! If not I will pray for you!!! I wish you the best!!!
It is only fair to family to be truthful and honest and tell them as soon as you find out. They have the right to know from the beginning and will give them longer to accept this. Also will be helpful to the person dying to have support and love once found out.
I would not tell anyone. It would change the relationship with my family and friends if I did. I want them have the same personality that they did while I was living. If they do not like me now while I am living I don't want them to like me while I am dying. This is why I don't want a funeral or memorial service when I am gone. If you can't love me while I am living I sure as heck don't want you saying I love you when I am gone.
Two minutes after I am dead, that is when they will find out.
A.s.a.p, when you first find out so they can say goodbye and spend the rest of the time with you only.
