Re: Cancer and Relatives
Just wondering whether anyone has experienced this. I have close relatives who would help me in a bad situation. However, they always seem to "hang tough" when it comes to illness; play it down. One is busy with family and children; the others retired and busy. They do not live nearby and we do not talk often. I informed them of my situation with lymphoma and Rituxan infusions and told them that things seem to be going quite well. My "beef" is that I rarely hear from them and thought I would hear more often, considering my situation. They do not seem to realize that going through this, we need some regular support, i.e., on the telephone. My husband is my support. Must branch out.
