What will you do for yourself if you come to know that you are going to die in a month. What all the wishes you have???? It's purely about your wish for yourself. I have a desire to lead a happy life at least at the end of my life with out any tensions. I wanna wear some dresses and wanna visit Maldives and some sacred places. Wanna go to beach at the time of raining. See water falls. Wanna go for long drive. Like these wishes if you have any???

Hmmmm first I will tell to my husband you should do the second marriage because I know my husband will alone after me and they are smart so they can get second marriage. I have no child so no worry after my dying. I will die with smile no worry about dying. But I want to eat more samosa, Dosa and Panipur because I like it so much. I want to visit of any Temple like Shiva or Krishna or Durga Mata. I want to donate my eyes so tell to my husband and finally want to tell to all mylotters byeee byeeeeeee ahhaha...

I´ve been thinking of that for a while as I´m on chemo for a type of cancer that has no cure. It´s a slow grower though and chemo has helped, but my future has shrunk in terms of longevity. I haven´t thought of something so soon as one month now, and as chemo is helping some, I am thinking of vacations after my last chemo, scarves for my bald hair, receiving guests and friends as usual, planting my veggie garden for this Summer. I guess I have not really thought of a 1 month term at all. Luckily, a doctor friend told me that now there was no problem with pain treatment (my fears), and I´m not afraid of dying. Have a lovely day. The sun is shining here and life is beautiful.

Life is better, I can tell you that. Today I was happy because the sun was shining and I invented a turban out of a big scarf that looked qutite weel, or so I thought.My eyeglasses covered hte fact that my eyebrows and eyelashes partically disappears. I went to the super and the was a big TV. There had been a crash in the highway and a young mother, brely 20 had been killed with her infant daughter. Now, don´t you think my cancer is nothing? Don´t you think that as you are alive you can (as Hamlet said but did not do) "take arms against a sea of troubles and, by opposing, end them" I hope my words help. They come from a wise ol´witch.

Really I tried and tried lot to end the problems but at times only hard work won't help us. Sometimes we need some luck I don't know what to say exactly. Now nothing in my hands to do. So I am just waiting and waiting. Still waiting. Any way I can't do rather than that. Thank you for your support and will think positive

hi there siri! well, if i knew i would die soon then i would spend the rest of my time with the people i love.i'll have every moment video recorded so that when i leave they will have something to view and refresh their memories with me. i want everything, everyone to be happy. i would fix all the troubles i did and lastly i would want to make my goodbyes extra special. i want to see smiles not tears when they would think of me.

Me I would just hug each and every person I love, my love one, my family and all my friends without saying anything I'll just hug them:) that would be the best thing I could do for myself before I die It will make me happy before I leave this world.

Hi siri, you know i had gone on this situation, my life was at risk every time i was pregnant the first time I gave birth to my eldest son was i almost die after my cesarean operation because of uterus contraction, the worst scenario was when i got pregnant to my second child my feelings that time was i will die because i was very weak so what i did was...i prepared and arranged all necessary documents i putted it in one place together with our life insurances certificates, I even fixed things of my child and my husband to make story short all i need to leave, there's no single evening when my husband and my son already asleep I watched them sleeping with tears comes down my checks it was not easy to leave your loved ones a heart breaking indeed. I made sure i attended to their needs everyday, I talked to them always gave them advise what to do and show my love to them always we have no chance of going somewhere because my condition was very risky to travel, we just stayed at home until the time for my cesarean operation to my second child and thanked God I survived!

hi siri26, nice to meet you. we have so much in common. Maldives is one of my favorite places in the world, one day when i get married, i will go there for the honeymoon. if tomorrow i die, i will do something tomorrow supposed to be done. just like Steve Jobs said, take every tomorrow as your last day. it means we should try our best to make things go well. find something you really like and keep going.

What do you mean? You already know you are going to die. It's the only thing you know for sure. So why do you want to wait till it's nearly to late? You can have that desire to lead a happy life so why don't you start with that now? Happiness is inside a person and you can decide to be happy from now on. There is nothing I would do for myself if I would know I would die tomorrow or in a month or in two months. Of course there are things I still like to do but it's not the biggest desire since I decided a long time ago to take as much out of my life as possible.

I agree happiness lies within us. It's us who is responsible for our happiness. But if come to know that we are going to die there are many tensions we can take lite. Like for example as per their life style and custom people have problems like getting married this won't be a issue if you are ding in a month or so. It look like very small issue but for some it's very big problem because lack of money or may be some other reasons. At that situation we are free of everything.

It sounds like a tough question,but I have an answer. If I knew I am going to die,I would wish for a pen and paper.I would write my last goodbye to my family,a poem describing how much I loved my family and my country,and a book containing the most memorable happenings in my life.I would write so that they won't easily forget me.

I'm not sure how best to approach tis topic. In a way, I am facing this although it is not that short of term. I have a slow growing cancer and I was just told that I will probably be starting chemo again very soon. I will find out more next week. I don't worry so much about the end of life as how to go on living as best I can. If I were to be told that I only had a month left, I think that I would take a trip somewhere I can do something for other people. If I couldn't take a trip, I would probably spend as much time at the Red Cross as I could because I find doing that fulfills my life at least most of the time.

About 24 years back I was very very sick and at that time the Doctor had told my family that I had only about 15-20 hours to live. I remember at that time I just wanted to be with my family and spend that time with them. At that time I did not think of any thing else.

Well, a month is a very long period of time when utilized properly. I would tell my people about what is going to happen in a month's period, just to keep them prepared for my last breath. Praying as usual- just to avoid hell (if it exist) and to be a nice guy till the end of time. I would leave everything prepared, so they won't have a problem disposing off my remains.
