    I think it really depends on the person. Personally, I was an open book about my cancer because I think it's really important for people to talk about it. Talking and hearing about it makes it all less scary. The people around me tried so hard not to say the wrong thing, but often I just wished they would be more open about how they felt about me having cancer. The only thing that really bothered me was when people told me "it's not that bad" or "don't focus on the negative". They meant to keep me positive, but it sometimes felt like they were telling me I couldn't grieve for the loss of my pre-cancer life. Sometimes I just needed to feel sad while I processed everything.
