When you (or a family member) are diagnosed with cancer people say a lot of insensitive things. It may be intentional or it may be just because they are caught off-guard and don’t know what to say to you. They ask bizarre questions, and often do bizarre things.
Sometimes you laugh.
Sometimes you just shake your head.
Sometimes you get angry.
But rarely do you forget.
So, today’s question is: what are the weirdest/craziest/most bizarre/most insensitive things people said to you/did to you while you or a family member or friend were going through treatment for cancer? Or died from it?
I have a few notable ones, but I’ll start with just one to kick things off. Someone asked me, “Is cancer what’s going to kill you? I mean, could you die from something else?”
