I am really ill with chronic liver disease and I cant hide it. i was dying 2 years ago but I managed to take my life back. My condition is stabke now and I'm waiting for a non Interferon cure. I see my doctors, take my meds, eat right, exercise and try to get enough sleep. I also talk about it. I would never blindside my loved ones by just dying on them.....
Good luck! I wish you well :)
Thanks so much :)
I wouldn't advertise it but I wouldn't keep it a secret...
I feel terrible all the time, but I won't even go to a doctor (I have no insurance), much less tell anyone I know.
Yeah, I don't want anyone crying over me.
Depends on whether something could be done about it or not. If I were to find out I have some sort of inoperable cancer, for example, I'd probably get my affairs in order, and I wouldn't mention it to anyone until I had to. There are some illnesses that you just can't hide or handle on your own. Toward the end, especially, you might need help to do things. I do have responsibilities, too, and someone would have to be in on what was going on to make sure things are taken care of if something happened to me.
I would for as long as possible...The less time my loved ones have to deal with it, the better. The husband is not one to handle illness well.
I am waiting to talk to my doctor first.....before telling anyone...:(
no I wouldn't, I would tell my family and friends
if someone was really really ill there is no way you can hide it - alot of people know when someone is ill or not - they can try to hide it but they dont do a very good job at it
hell no, i'm sort a wimp when it comes to being sick. you'd think i was dying if you saw me with a flu or fever. :P
Probably not. If I were seriously ill, I'd get to the doctor right away. So my family would definitely know pretty quickly.
Yepper until the day I die.
