It is always devastating to be diagnosed with a terminal disease.


Does this sentence sound good to you?
If yes, how should I interpret devastating here? destroy one's hope or something else? Thanks.

    This sentence sounds good to me. Here, "devastating" means to destroy one's hope or spirit. So, yes, you are right. :)
