Have any of you experienced someone telling you about a friend who died of cancer right after asking about how you feel? I just had my hairdresser tell me (and this is not the first time) about this lady who was feeling good too and then she died. How outrageous! He gives great hair cuts but this time it just made me mad but I was too speechless (and why is this since this is not the first time since my diagnosis he told me this story). I responded by talking about the lady who died, defending her decision to have chemo and radiation. How crazy is that? It certainly got me nowhere. He was just as convinced it was her fault she died or the fault of her treatments, rather than the cancer she had, when I left as when I came in and I am exhausted! I have to find another hair dresser or learn how to handle people and situations like this better. Let me know what you would have done or would do.
