Cancer is very personal and emotionally exhausting if you have to repeatably give details of your illness to everyone who enquires.
Sometimes you are pressed to answer questions when really you don’t feel like it. You would rather talk about other things like knowing that there is still a world out there that you will feel well enough to enjoy sometimes.
Think about how you want to handle questions from people you are not close to. Try and have a few set answers to the questioning if you don’t want to talk about your personal business. “Let’s talk about what you have been up to, I’m sick of talking illness!”
Prepare responses that work for you and when don’t want to talk about your personal business or ask a family member or friend to be your spokesperson when it just gets too much.
