Best response for bad news?
@rhongirl posted a discussion in breast cancer group after someone said "hope you make it" after learning about her diagnosis, see her post for more details.
That got me thinking of various responses I got when people found out about my cancer. Some helpful, some not. I heard "sorry" so often I learned to hate that word. Even though it was said with good intentions.
From that experience I hope I respond appropriately when someone shares bad news with me.
Please share what responses were most helpful / encouraging when you shared bad news about a medical diagnosis.
