    I'm So Sorry

    I'm a Home Health Nurse and many of the people I encounter have ailments that will NEVER improve, poor prognoses and chronic lifelong suffering to brave. Sometimes, I just don't know what else to say.  I'm so sorry, I wish I had better words.

    I am so sick of hearing the saying "Hang in there" I wish that it never existed, because people throw it out there, and they don't hold any meaning to it. They use it to make them look like they really care, when sadly, they don't! Its seems very rarely you will find...
