    To me it's nothing more than another appointment I will have to keep!

    What do you feel about death?

    Do you fear it?

    If so why?

    It cant be avoided, not matter what you eat, or how fit you are!

    Just a transfer of energy to me. By the time I'm ready to die I'll need new places to put all my energy anyway, because in human form I doubt it will be very useful at that age. There's so much other life out there that could use it.

    LOL I found the true meaning of not carrying about death after what I went through last year. Must admit I feel more free as a person and a little bit more mature. I guess it goes with the territory when you start planning your funeral. All I know is that I have a little bit more time on this mudball.

    EDIT: Before anyone starts assuming - No, I am no longer about to keel over and die. I'll be around a long time.

    Not scared of it. Won't even care when it happens... Just don't want to leave anyone upset when I'm gone...

    I don't fear death.

    I do fear the actual moment and have spoken to a few nurses about exactly how people react.

    They have given me a flowery description of the heart rate slowing down and slowly going to sleep. One one lady was honest enough to tell me she has seen a few gasp for air before dying.

    Razors pain you;
    Rivers are damp;
    Acids stain you;
    And drugs cause cramp.
    Guns aren't lawful;
    Nooses give;
    Gas smell awful;
    You might as well live.

    This year I have learned to accept death lol

    Mainly....from my English teacher!

    And reading the works of Shakespeare, Edgar Allan Poe, and Lord Alfred Tennyson.

    "Death is inevitable...we're all slowly dying and are approaching our death's whether it may be tomorrow or 50 years from now."

    Sorry if this post is morbidly depressing!

    Ironic that this topic has appeared - I've been thinking about death and life this week as I assisted/attended a funeral for a friend of mine. He passed away at the age of 35 from a diabetic induced coma. Standing at the gravesite and seeing the hundreds of other tombstones I reflected on how quickly life really does go by. My reflection reinforced my belief of really making sure that I'm l-i-v-i-n-g......and to answer the question, no, I don't fear death.

    All organisms die. It's part of the life cycle. Nothing less; nothing more.

    What do you mean by glib? I will admit that by some posts they have no clue because they have not actually faced it. My doctor actually told me that he hoped I'd make it through. I didn't miss a day of work at that time because I knew that if I did die I would be found sooner than if I died in my apartment. It's the honest truth. One I really do not want to go through again but the truth nonetheless.

    I lost 2 family members this year and have been thinking about death more than I would like to. What I realized was that you can't waist your life worring or thinking about death. My father would be so pissed if he knew I was letting his death get me depressed.

    Sometimes it's hard to remember, but I just remind myself, life is for the living, so live!

    No, not afraid of it. As a cancer survivor, I've learned that it's inevitable.

    The Buddhists call it Anicca, or the Law of Impermanence. It's a concept that I embraced during chemo, and a doctrine that I still stick to to this day.

    However, in the same respect, I don't live my life recklessly just because of it. I'd rather remain healthy while I'm having fun. ;)

    Well for us who believe in God. Yes I am afraid of death. I am afraid if I be going to hell or heaven. Those punishment or reward I will receive after I breath by last. I know some of you guy probably will be laughing at me, but I believe in what I believe.
