my mom found out she was terminally ill and she had 6 months to live. i cant even imagine what she was thinking when the doctor told her. that would be the most scariest thing for a person to go through.she had lung cancer and immediately quit smoking but it was too late and sure enough 6 months to the day she died. she had no secound chances......scary im almost her age now and i smoke. i know i should quit smoking right NOW!!!!!!!

Hi Punlonnjack, your right, you should quit. So should I but for some reason I cant seem to bring myself to consider it. I'm sorry to hear about your mother! I guess if I found out I had six months to live, after I got over the shock I would try to find some way to care for those that I care about. And try to enjoy my last days as much as possible. Take care, Terry

I think it would be the worst thing to be told I have only 6 months to live. My children are still small, and I would be devestated. However after I got over the initial shock i would set about like I had only 6 months to live. There would be a lot of decisions and plans to make. Then I would pray and pray as hard as I could that maybe I would have just a little bit longer. Be good to yourself while you can, you never know when it might be over.
