i often look at death much different then some, i see it as a blessing. but i don't want to die, but i am ready to die if god wants me. through my life i done plenty of bad things, and hurt many mostly my family. i but went back and fixed and said to them. i improve myself as a father,husband, son, friend, and uncle. i live my life being real, i treat everyone the way i want to be treated, i don't judge anyone for any reason but when someone who pass, i know if they are sick then they don't have to suffer no longer. if it someone die in a car crash or any kind of accident it harder, but if i do die i see it i won;t have pain no more, i am in pain 24/7 none stop. but what is your look on death.

No, I'm nowhere near ready to die. Lots of things still nee to be done, lots of problems left unsolved. I've tried to live my life to the fullest, tried to make friends as many as possible, tried to be a better individual. I'm not sure if Ive fully accomplished all that. Plus, I feel like I still haven't made a mark for myself yet. I'd fight tooth and nail just to escape it, then again, if I could see that it will be a losing battle, who am I to question His ways, right? Good discussion. It made me assess my life a bit. =)

That's sad being in pain non-stop. Just like the slogan, everything will come to pass. Night turns to day and day turns to night. Storms pass, clouds are not permanent. I would pray that I could do the things I set myself to do first before I leave this mundane existence. That way there would be something others would remember me by. Cheers and happy mylotting.

I will never be ready to die even though I know it is inevitable, I still want to live. Even when I am grey and old and I have lived a hundred years before ,I will still want to live 101 then 102 years....The idea of ceasing to exits has never really excited me and I often wonder how I will deal with that. How could anyone want to die when life is so exciting ,when they are so many wonders to see. Who would have thought that we would be able to stay in one part of the world and speak to someone at the other end of the world. Who would have thought that you would see a car fly ,who would have thought that you can buy something form some one in another part of the world that you have never met .Who would have thought that a man with prosthetic legs would want to compete with able bodied men. This is an exciting time that many persons in the thirteenth century would have loved to see ,why would you want to die now when there are still many more things to see Unless I was in pain and suffering from a terminal disease then I MIGHT ,note I said MIGHT ,because even then there is still hope that maybe they will find a cure.

I'm not ready to die yet. But if that's what God has planned for me then so be it.. but I'm praying for a longer life.. I still wanted to be with my family, do things i've never done before, accomplish my unfunished business, etc..

You poor chap I really don't know what to say,except to say they are coming up with new treatments all the time.No one expects to suffer like you are,but what about your family who have taken you back,they love you and try to support you.I intend living for ever at the moment but who knows what is around the corner,noone can really know what you are going through can you go to the doctors and discuss how you feel.He might have some better treatment for you.I am so sorry to hear of your predicament and pray it never happens to me ,who knows how I will feel.but look around you at the beautiful world we live in.

Yes, I believe so. I never feared dying per se. I guess the inevitable is inescapable and I'm just settled into the thought. The only thing we can control, to some extent, is how we die.
