    It's been almost 15 months ~~

    Can anyone help me streamline the following sentence?
    especially the last part "even though there is no hope in sight"
    which seems unnecessarily too long and redundant.
    I am pretty sure there is a way to make it short and sweet but i just don't know how. THANK YOU


    "Itís been almost 15 months since we have relied on each other hoping that things would get better even though there is no hope in sight."



    I tried " ~~~get better even with no hope in sight." but is it grammatically correct?

    Re: It's been almost 15 months ~~

    How about something llike:
    We've been hoping that things would get better for fifteen months, but there's still no hope in sight.
    (I didn't get the relying part. There's still hoping/hope repetition, though)
