English Expressions: Hold yourself together!

Dialogue

Jerry

: Did you see the doctor? Is your sister out of the woods?

Sarah: Oh Jerry! I’m at my wit ends; I’m afraid she’s going from bad to worse - it has been two hours!

Jerry: Snap out of it! She’ll be fine. I’m sure she will..

Sarah: I’m really going into pieces: I can’t help being worried sick about her. You know she’s at death’s door.

Jerry: Oh dear! Hold yourself together! You just need to pray for her and keep a stiff upper lip.

Sarah: Look look! Why are the doctors in a huddle? She must have passed away!

    M: Damn, my grandma is hasn't out of the woods, she is going bad to worse. I am afraid that she might pass away before her birthday this year. L: Go into pieces please, you have been worried sick. The doctor said it in a huddle that she wasn't at the death's door yet. M: Yeah, I might put myself together, and stop at my wit end. I should wish her all the best. 🙏 L: You should keep a stiff upper lip and she will be recover soon.
