I think that I am dying should I inform my parents of my condition?

I might be dying. Should i tell my parents or spare them the worry?


Answer by  Anonymous

Have YOU decided you're dying, or has a doctor told you (or hopefully, several - because if someone told me I was dying, I'd get at LEAST a second opinion)? You should probably have your family and the doctor meet, so they know what to expect/how to provide care.

I would tell the parents that you are seriously ill. Unless your condition is definitely terminal, I would not mention that unless or until it is necessary.

How could you be so sick and not tell your parents? I could never hide it from mine! Aside from the worry, wouldn\'t they want to know so that they could spend as much time with you as possible?  add a comment

In this situation you should further investigate whatever is ailing you to the extent that you easily can. If it's something that you needn't worry about, then I wouldn't worry them with it. If something is bothering you though, you should feel comfortable telling your parents about it regardless.
