    I guess I was hoping we could post the ridiculous things people have said to us to try to comfort us. Sometimes I truly wonder if people think before they speak ahah…gotta laugh about it right?

    For me –

    “Oh man, I am so sorry to hear about that. My dog died of cancer and it was so so sad and hard.” – said to me while my dad as 1. STILL ALIVE 2. A HUMAN BEING
    -this still makes me crack up

    Lol, I like this thread. Everyone needs to laugh a little! Definitely got a lot of people saying that they understood because their grandparents died

    From my now ex when I told him while we were dating – “I’m sorry to hear that” after I told him she was dying and there were no options left. That was the end of that and good riddance!

    “But your dad doesn’t look sick”

    Ugh. People.

    “I know someone with pancreatic cancer and they’re still alive”

    I know it was meant to be comforting, but really?

    “Its been a long time since they passed so I’m sure it will hurt less” – anniversary of my mom’s death

    “I thought you were getting better about this” – mother’s day

    Sometimes I swear….People never cease to amaze me. I laugh about these now because it still just seems so absurd.

    “Time heals all wounds” – whoever thought this would be comforting clearly never experienced loss

    Reading this thread makes me laugh – thank you so much for starting it. Nice to know that other people are being told ridiculous and insensitive things too! I know people mean well but sometimes I want to scream!

    I know right?! It’s sorta insane what some people will say to comfort you

    One of my friends didn’t say this directly to me but I overheard her talking (just a little too loudly) – ” Poor thing, she really thinks there’s hope. I heard that type of cancer is pretty much deadly”

    Obviously hurt me tremendously and I’m sure she wouldn’t have said it to my face. People suck and shouldn’t talk about things they don’t understand
