A hospice nurse has revealed the most common regrets people have before they die.
Watch the video below:
Julie said she gets asked about the regrets her patients have as they are about to die.
She also shared what she has learned from hearing from patients as a result. “That tells me to be in the moment, live presently, be grateful and don’t take for granted your health and the little things about living life,” she said.
“Your videos have given me so much peace since my mom passed and appreciation for her hospice nurse. Thank u. [sic]” one woman commented after watching the touching clip.
While another TikTok user shared: “Thank you I needed to hear that”.
A third person wrote: “The thing I’m afraid about dying is missing out on my children & grandkids growing up, just being gone forever.”
Another grateful TikTok account said: “Maam, this was inspirational. Thank you for sharing your knowledge when you didn't have to. Its appreciated.”
One person reflected on Julie’s video and commented: “This is heartbreaking to me, that we sometimes see the clearest when it’s all slipping away.”
Julie, a registered nurse from Los Angeles, California, has worked in a hospice for roughly half a decade and has collected countless anecdotes in that time.
Speaking to The Sun in November last year, Julie explained what she enjoys most about her job: “The best part about my job is educating patients and families about death and dying as well as supporting them emotionally and physically.
“Also, helping them to understand what to expect is another part of my job as a hospice nurse.
“There is something most people say before they die and it’s usually ‘I love you’ or they call out to their mum or dad — who have usually already died.”
