Some people can't seem to handle it.
With the invention of Facebook etc I have managed to find many old friends. I always start out the chat with things about marriage, kids, work etc. Eventually I will tell them about my cancer. It isn't something I think I should keep under wraps - it is a big part of who I am now. Lately there have been at least two old friends that haven't responded back after I told them I had been sick. I don't know if it freaks them out or if they just don't know how to respond or what. It isn't like I am looking for sympathy but I tell them about it as part of my work at the YMCA and things like that. Then suddenly the emails stop. It is frustrating. Maybe they aren't the friends they used to be or maybe it is a harsh reality for them that they don't want to face. Either way it isn't fair to me!
