I hope that this does not seem like an inappropriate question but it has been weighing on me for some time. I have read posts from carers about the experience of when their love one has died and was finally at peace. Some report that the last few days were so awful and their loved one suffered and others report that their loved one went to another place "peacefully".
I know that each patient is affected differently with PSP, but what are your thoughts on why some are so painful and others peaceful. As a nurse, I have seen many peaceful end of life moments. When discussing with my husband, who approximately is in his 5-6 year of PSP, I try to assure him that as his body shuts down, he will be in a peaceful state. Is this just wishful thinking and am I fooling myself?
Thanks for your thoughts,
