Dying Just Sucks

People who are dying can be very irritable. They are not easy to be around, and hospice nurses and caregivers must be saints to deal with the moodiness, changeability, and downright surliness if the elderly person still has her wits about her. You would want to just slowly and sweetly fade away, right? But we fight it, we can’t accept it, we don’t feel old in our minds, even if our bodies are wasting away. We don’t want life to end, we want one more month, one more day, one more hour.
