Family on 2009-07-21
It's taken my family over a year to tell me that my Grandad has cancer. It's also taken them two years before that to tell me that there was something wrong before. I was the last to know and if I didn't find out how I did today, I'm pretty much sure I'd be living in ignorance for several years to come.
It's a bit of a shock and it does upset me, but it really would have been nice to have been told something like this. I'm mature enough to understand this problem and to handle it. I would have been angrier if I was told any later than this. But when I do get angry about it, I feel guilty about it.
I love my family.
