    Miss Suebee...i truly hope and pray this doesn't mean you have only six months to live. as for your question, yes, i would tell those who care about me. this gives you and them time to prepare and to have closure. if loved ones have time to prepare, your death will not be such a shock and they will heal from the grief of your loss sooner. if it were me, they way i see it is that i will be dead, but they must carry on, so i would do whatever i could to make that journey easier for those who care about me.

    I think you would have too. However good you are at hiding your feelings i think people close to you would notice that their was something wrong! Imagine if they found out once you had died that you didn't tell them, how would they feel!

    I would tell some people and not others. Not everyone needs to know. Also, people do not have an expiration date stamped anywhere so 6 months is an estimate... Could be sooner or later. I'd just live each day to the fullest throw a party and make tie up my loose ends with everyone.

    No, this isn't about me or anyone I know.  It came to mind when my husbands cousin in Germany died of breast cancer.  Her death came as a shock as she told no one.  Not her parents, boyfriend, best friend.....so, thought I would ask what others would do.
