When we are diagnosed with a terminal illness, we all hope for longer time. Even when odds are not in our favor, somehow, we believe that we are immune to what's to come. Somehow we may get to cheat death in the end. It's my experience that 'hope' ends up blindfolding us from the reality of our lives. Hope keeps us from making the right decisions to get us the ending we would want for ourselves. By imagining that somehow we are exception to the rule, we lose the objectivity to make decisions that may give us a better life, a better last chapter. In this episode, I empower you to ask the right questions from your patient, or if you are the patient, I encourage you to focus on what matters to you most.
