What should I say?

It is okay if you are not sure exactly what to say. There is no magic recipe. Each conversation is going to be different.

The key thing is to start the conversation. Remember the strength of “I” statements – tell people what you think, what you feel, and what you want.

What if they won’t listen?

If the people you want to talk to don’t want to talk, consider stopping the conversation for the moment. Let them know it is important to you to talk about your future health plans. Plan a time and place to have the conversation.
