Everyone copes differently but trying to hide pain and not cope at all is one of the most toxic ways to heal. No one want to cope because no one plans for death; however, with strategizing and seeking all methods of help and recovery an individual can become whole again. Automatically, the first reaction to death is initial shock and not knowing how how to move on; however, in order to continue on with life an individual must let themselves grieve, accept what has happened, and then slowly begin to move on. Honestly, the majority of people would not think they could handle any sort of steps to recovery but in the long run they will be thankful they did. A tragedy as huge and saddening as death will always be a scary and touchy topic, but if people try to help themselves and not try to conquer bereavement on their own they will be better
Chris uses pathos by providing examples of Chris’ troubled family life. For example, after finding out about his father’s affair, Chris felt as if he could only trust Carine. This is evident as Chris sent her a letter saying, “Anyway, I like to talk to you about this because you are the only person in the world who could possibly understand what I am saying” (Krakauer 129). This appeals to our emotions as Krakauer makes us empathize with Chris: he feels as if no one understands him, so he thus ignores his family. Chris was not only socially isolated, but he was also physically isolated from everyone he loved.
Congress has approved funding for the $1,600,000,000 VA hospital in Denver, Colorado. The hospital has such a high price tag because of inefficient management on the part of the people in charge of monitoring the construction of the building. Doors meant to cost around $100 ballooned to $1400, and some entire rooms had to be remade due to changes in medical equipment. The original cost for the hospital was $604,000,000, and the project is now hailed as “ The biggest construction failure in VA history.” In addition to agreeing to fund the extra $625,000,000, Congress had agreed to put the Army Corps of engineers in charge of any VA construction projection forecasted to cost $100,000,000 or more.

Medication errors have been around for years. They are being made by everyone whether it’s the patient, the doctor , or even the pharmacologist. There can be many reasons for the cause of the error. But, they need to be stopped because they are causing death and illnesses to worse everyday. There are about 1.3 million errors being made in the US alone per year.
Christopher explains that he has difficulty figuring out people’s emotions from their facial expressions. He can easily recognize sad and happy faces, but when his therapist, Siobhan, draws some pictures of other emotions, he finds the faces are confusing and is “unable to say what these meant” (3). So he has to memorize the exact meaning of each face and quickly determine what face others are making when they talk to him. When his father lies to him about his mother’s death, he tries to figure out what he means how and his father feels: “I can't tell what [people] are thinking. It is like being in a room with a one-way mirror in a spy film''(22).
Patients have suffered unnecessarily due to lack of health care, and “18,000 Americans die every year because they don't have health insurance” (PNHP). Health care is essential for Americans despite pre-existing conditions, and a free market insurance program would allow citizens to received the health care that is so desperately needed. A universal health care system is a matter of human rights and would solve America’s problem of one sixth of the population being
Langston Hughes 's shifting attitude toward salvation in his essay was disappointing and at the same time upsetting. He 's disappointed and upset because he was forced to believe in the situation that something will happen to him inside before he accept Jesus but instead it did not happen. Most of the time we are pressured to accept an idea of what others belief, not because we agree to it but instead we intentionally do it for them to stop asking. Some felt the guilt after, and do something about it but most of the time we just let it go and move on.
Before the rotavirus vaccine, the rotavirus caused 55,000 - 70,000 hospitalizations yearly (McPhee and Papadakis 4). In the world these days people just do not have the money to get sick. Being ill is a major inconvenience in our society. It not only puts your life on hold, but it then stops you and your family from accomplishing your daily
Many solider who fought in the war are now suffering from long-term disabilities, and there is not enough Medicaid to cover them. Our nation is lacking professional and trained caregivers who can provide care for elderly who are living with multiple conditions. The government is cutting Medicaid funds and the majority who need them the most are struggling to pay for their health insurance, especially poor people. Medicaid has several advantage for younger adults but it cheats older people. Life course will increase in the future and the government will cut the budgets and programs.
The caregivers are a crucial aspect in the patients last moments. The caregivers are there to help and support the dying, but many forget that they themselves need support in order to carry on. As death being something we can’t prepare for it becomes tougher when we know that for now there isn’t so much of a cure, just a few things to prolong it. Truschke in his letter strives to explain this matter when he writes; “No one is really prepared to deal with the nightmare of Alzheimer’s on their own” (110). His point is not only with dealing with Alzheimer’s disease itself, but can be looked at with all other causes of death and illnesses.
