i know how you feel.

i'm afraid i might lose someone else even closer to me to cancer, too. maybe even two. :cry:

My dad was diagnosed with an aggressively malignant brain tumor at the beginning of the year. This has been the worst year of my life.

cancer now has a big place in my life and sometimes i wonder whether i talk about it and death too much.
i wonder whether people don't want to hear about it, but its hard yto know and hard to stop yourself from talking about it when it has had such a huge impact on your life.
you mainly try to be frank about it as its just a part of your life but when you do, you notice the looks that people give you.
You feel that " this girl is nuts, shes talking so openly about her father's death in front of me and i really dont want to know" look.
I pretty much dont talk about him at all now because i know it makes other people uncomfortable.
i wonder if i talk about him too much here even.

Despite my request for your banishment in Lemonade_Stand, I wished to let you know that you can talk to us any time about anything, as openly as you want. It does not make us uncomfortable, and you do NOT talk about him too much. Feel free to talk to me if you ever need to!

....and then it is very close. A co-worker of me has cancer. We heard it yesterday. Not smoking, not drinking, and 27 years old.

And i do not know how to react, well time will learn.
