Dear Wendy, What a thoughtful topic about why people do not like to tell others about their diagnosis. People have different reasons, including feeling vulnerable, protecting others from pain, wanting to keep their personal issues private, and so many other reasons. At first, there is shock and so a person may feel numb. Giving a person time to acclimate and consciously make a decision about how they want to move forward with their personal, work and social interactions will determine what they tell people. How they want to be seen by others will play a part to keep up their self identity. Blessings for all you do. Good luck with your book. Love, Debby
