Death is an inevitable part of life. There is no escaping it. Believe it or not, there are 36,741 deaths every day. It becomes prominent that we will also pass on, and there will be others after us. However, constantly thinking about death is never helpful. It will always make us feel extremely finite and believe that we do not matter in this world. That an average life of 65 years is not enough to achieve all the goals we set out for ourselves.
If you have a family member suffering from a terminal disease and may pass away in a few months, hearing about their death is also very saddening and can make the process of letting go a lot harder.
Hard To Keep Track Of Everything
If you are not a trained professional and know nothing about the illness your loved one is experiencing, hearing a lot of things about their treatments and condition can be hard. There will be multiple experiences everyone else has had and received various treatments they were offered according to their needs and state.
Not everything applies to the person who is near you and suffering. Some people are only trying to help, but the excessive information will confuse you about what you should follow to help them.
Confusion About Survival And Death
Even when a loved one is suffering from a terminal illness, there are hopes of survival from their family members. Terminal illnesses such as cancer are treatable, and many people recover from them. However, excessive information can confuse family members and make them question whether the patient will survive or not.
It makes the process of helping them a lot harder as well as makes the attendants question whether their hard work will pay off or not. This is exactly the process I went through when my father was ill. It was a treatable illness, but the excessive information made things harder than they already were. However, going through such situations made me write my book. Living Through Dying. It helps the reader cope with the demise and process of a loved one passing away.
Misinformation On The Internet
Curiosity sparks interest and the internet will provide misinformation. The world still has doctors for a reason, and patient care should be asked of them instead of going to the internet for closure. Misinformation can lead to more confusion and worry.
