No one in Tennessee likes to get injured or suffer from an illness, but from time to time it is bound to happen. Hopefully the person is able to get better within a short period of time, so they can and go back to their normal daily life.

Not everyone in Tennessee may love their job all the time, but they are necessary for one to be able to pay their bills and meet their needs.
