My mom, who has terminal lung cancer with Metastasis to the brain, and has been on hospice since February, cannot accept that she is dying. She can no longer walk and barely move her limbs, she has a lot of trouble breathing and is on oxygen. She is visibly declining rapidly. Yet she insists she can walk if we get her help, and that she is fine. She is fighting it every step of the way and dragging out her suffering. This is heartbreaking to me. Is this how everyone is when they approach death?
