Handbook for Mortals : Talking With Your Doctor

Handbook for Mortals : Talking With Your Doctor: " It isn't easy to talk about disease and dying. And talking specifically about your own dying is both harder and more important to do. Sometimes talking about it is hard because you don't know which words to use. That isn't your failure: Our society doesn't have the words and shared stories that would make it natural to talk of death and dying. Sometimes it is hard to talk about your own dying because you are afraid to learn what might happen next. You might fear that if you talk about something bad, you will cause it to happen. Even if you know this 'magical thinking' is illogical, it can still keep you from talking and asking important questions."
