    I don't think I'll ever be "ready"...I plan to live forever.



    But I'm ok with the knowledge it will happen sooner or later. I've got a kid and I'd love to see him grow up but that's not guaranteed.



    You just have to live as well as you can (and take steps to provide when you're gone) while you're here. I'm trying.



    I truly feel that when we get to the other side, we'll understand that it REALLY wasn't anything to fear.

      I do not fear death, but I do fear suffering. When it's my turn, I just hope it's quick. The preferred scenario is "instantly crushed by falling ACME-brand 10 ton anvil."



      40 years old, epileptic for the past 12. I know what it's like to wake up in the ER with no memory of how I got there. Last time that happened, the first thing I did when my mind came back was to check if my arms & legs were still attached.

        I'll be 28 this week...which means I'm not ready. But that's ok, I want to have a family with my gf and enjoy that life.



        I had an allergic reaction a year ago and ended up in the ER. I started getting real cold and almost blacked out before they shot me with the epinephrine. I'm not sure it was a near death moment, but I had that moment where I wondered if I'd ever wake up if I went under. I've done some stupid stuff and broken multiple bones...but that was the scariest moment of my life.



        I walked out of the ER with a new respect for life that night. Found out I was allergic to peanuts which has really changed my outlook on everything. I'm comfortable with it now, but it was a rough few months adjusting.





        So yea, I'm ok with it eventually happening. But I have a lot left to live for and am young. All the men on my fathers side tend to die in there 50's...so I'm really hoping to break that streak

          i'm 42, and don't feel like i'm done yet by any stretch. that said-- if i were to hear i were ill, i'd buck that **************** to the end to keep on going, 'cause i got **************** to do, and the likes of some illness isn't taking me out if I can help it. if i lose to it in the end- c'est la vie, or mort, as the case may be- but i'd battle it tooth and nail if i have energy left to do so.

              I've lived a good life. I had no issues with dying, at all. In fact, I'll love it to happen now

                If you truly live in the moment, you have no time to worry about the grim stuff.

                  Ok so I'm the guy...It's my job. Someone has to bring up the question of where do you go when you die. I was hoping someone would have already established the fact that it is very an instrumental part of accepting mortality/immortality. Seems it would be easier to accept if you knew you would live on in paradise.

                    Would be very grateful to see my daughter grow up and her children as well. I know it will happen one day bu would like for it to be a while from now. I also don't want to be unable to get around or mentally ill. Would prefer to be vaporized by a giant meteor.

                      Lol.. Read this thread and I have other thoughts on the matter, but I don't care enough to type them out at the moment.. But when I thought of how I wanted to die, I pictured that meteor flying in and I just sat on my front lawn waiting to be vaporized enjoying the show as it raced in. I do think that would be the most comforting to me

                        When you die you're dead as far as I'm concerned. I think that faith, spirituality and belief in something is VERY important but my beliefs are with other things. I wanted to have music put as the religion on my children's birth certificate. I'm not afraid to die. I'm ready. Bear in mind there's a huge difference between being ready to die and wanting to.

                          I got misdiagnosed with mesothelioma about 4 years ago.

                          I went through 2 weeks "knowing" I had less than a year left.



                          All I could do was worry about how I was going to make sure my family was ok once I was gone.
                          (Personal footnote: I'm 56, and a lot of things don't work so great anymore. The wrist is one example. Another is my Johnson, which doesn't fire up like it used to. Sometimes it hardly works at all. A year ago it actually backfired. The guy at the outboard motor repair shop where I bring it says this is common with an old Johnson.)

                            I'm 26. If I found out I had a few months or whatever left I'd probably be disappointed. I don't feel like I have done much in my life because pretty much everything I have done/focused on has been a longer term goal. That said, I know I have been a good person who has been honest with myself and others, and have been doing what I felt was right for myself longer term, but I guess I can't feel anything but disappointed that I didnt have the extra time to accomplish what I was striving for.

                              I was hit by a car when I was 16, and was lucky to walk away from it, although it did leave me with damage that negaitvely effcts my life today. I ODed a couple times as a teen ager as well. Then in 2007 I came within hours of death from pneumonia, spent 9 days in the hospital, 5 of those in ICU. It took a year for my lungs to recover enough that I could walk a block without falling down wheezzing, gasping for air. I was 37yo, here I am now at 42, and I'm not ready to go yet. Yes, I will die, it is part of being mortal, but if vampires and werewolves do exist, I want to be bitten, so I can go on forever. Cause then I bet the "sickness" would heal my ****************ed up back and I could be strong again. No joke, if anyone of y'all is a vampire, or werewolf, come bite me please. I'd prefer werewolf, but would settle for vampire



                              Then again, werewolves eat there own poo so maybe vampire first choice....then werewolf...

                                Plus, there's probably more hot babes that would let a vampire **************** them than those who would **************** a werewolf.
