Hospice nurse shares what people regret when they're dying
Fear of dying is quite natural, but one hospice nurse is using TikTok to help ease some of them by educating viewers about the process of death.
In one video, the nurse who goes by the name of Julie explained that a lot of the patients in her care often report feeling regrets on their deathbeds.
Julie’s job means she’s often with people at the endpoint of their lives, and she replied to a question asking: “What kind of regrets do you hear? I feel like in the end, everyone’s going to have regrets of some sort. Common?”
In her response, she pointed to some of these regrets as a lesson in “how to not have regrets at the end of your life”.
Julie explained: “As a hospice nurse and death and dying educator, people ask me this question all the time and here’s what I’ve found in general.
“Most people at the end of their life have regrets about not appreciating their health, not appreciating being alive – the little things, – working their life away and not spending more time with family.”
