Death is perhaps one of the most controversial topics because there is so much we do not realize about dying. However, unfortunately, we all will ‘meet our maker’ one day, and because of that, it’s best to understand what is and what isn’t true.Death is pretty terrifying. It means that we are no longer alive, and because we are born with survival instincts, it’s pretty natural to be afraid.
When a loved one is near their point of no return, it is quite scary. What makes it even worse is that a lot of us are completely misguided when it comes to death. Having the wrong information can make the total event much worse than it has to be.
Below, I am going to cover 6 myths about dying that need to stop, now.Most people hear the word ‘hospice’ and immediately assume the worst. However, hospice is not always a death sentence. On the contrary, while hospice is often used in cases in which a patient has less than 6 months to live, it is also suggested for any patients that need at-home care.Another common misconception about death is that pain medicine is used to bring death on faster.
This could not be further from the truth. Pain meds are given to help the patient to experience less suffering when they are on the verge of death, not to hasten the process.The thing is- when your loved one is near death, there is no telling at what moment their death will actually occur. Many people who are dying wait until they are completely alone.
