There is no precedent on the social savior fare for this situation, and I have experienced some flubs. Do not scrunch your nose and ask, "That's not contagious, is it? Do not say, "Oh, my great aunt Millie's cousin (or whoever) died from that." 3.
Do not ask if the disease comes from something the person did (Ex: "Don't people with STDs get that? Do not try to sell the person that particular product. Do not try to sell anything from any of the aforementioned social faux pas. Bernie Seigal is not acceptable for the patient in treatment. Do not start a lecture on eating habits and how the person should have only eaten organic vegan, drank green magma and taken wheat grass shots. Yes, every single reaction here is something someone has done or said, shocking and/or offending me, albeit unknowingly, but giving me some good laughs too.
Do not suggest asparagus, shakes or any other miracle cure that is "proven to work." 9.
Words just don't always come easily when emotions run high, but don't worry, we're probably all ready off, forgetting or not noticing the error in manners, planning our survival.
He has his own dreams and dream world, that he holds dearly.
But anyways,he is definitely everything one can want him to be.The first time someone uttered the words, "You still have hope" in response to my cancer, I almost slapped them. With cancer becoming more prevalent and people living longer and healthier, the sick are now venturing into society more, encountering acquaintances in social situations. You'll look like you're trying to capitalize on the person's desperation. No asking questions just so you have the first-hand gossip. Do not start on a rampage lecture about how someone somewhere has the cure and is hiding it in a conspiracy theory to make money from your suffering. Definitely DO NOT suggest the person's providers are in on the scheme. Do not shrug, toss your head and say, "Well, there is always hope," because the person is probably hoping there are a whole lot of other options than just hoping. Do not state that the person got the disease from past bad behaviors either in this life or past ones. Don't send any books, magazines or texts that state or even suggest that cancer is caused and can be cured by meditation, changing your personality, etc. Luckily, for every action there is an equal or stronger reaction. When an RN said these words -- meant to comfort me -- I raged. Miss Manners never addressed how to handle the news someone you barely know has a life-threatening disease with etiquette in five-minute small talk. Don't pepper them with a hundred generic questions about the type of cancer, treatment regimen and hospitalizations. Don't say "Oh" and run away like the person has the plague. FYI: The preacher who stated I must redeem myself for past wrong-doings to be cured later was diagnosed with throat cancer. It affects the way a person thinks, processes emotions, maintains relationships, and makes decisions.It’s especially hard to diagnose in teenagers because many of the first signs of schizophrenia in young people, such as bad grades, sleeping too much, or withdrawal from friends, can at first seem like typical problems. If you think someone you know may have schizophrenia, reach out to your doctor or psychiatrist.
