    Ok, after the suicide thread, I have another thing on my mind~
    I'm not afraid to die (can't you tell??)
    I used to be, but after I lost my Mother--well, I'm not afraid anymore.
    But anyway, if you were given the chance to know when you were going to die, the date of your death, would you want to know??
    Yes this is a serious question...some may say a big fat NO!..then others, like myself, might say Yes, I would most definitely like to know when my time is up~

    Yes, I would want to know. I'm not afraid of dying either. Every night I ask "can you take me NOW?" and every morning I wake up. But there are my fur children, wagging their tails, so I get up, make coffee and go about my day.
    I'd still want to know though. Recon, sorta thing. Plans to add or dismiss, so to speak.

    We adamantly cling to this life being reality, and the hereafter illusion

    what if, we found the inverse true?

    For me Sparky, even tho I have everything in order, as far as wills and etc.--I would like to know the date of my death, so I can assure myself that I will be spending the last few days/hours that I have left, doing what I want to do.
    It's like paying a bill to me, "well I know such & such is due on this date"...so I would like the opportunity to know when my last day on earth is.
    Think about the Hospice people. They KNOW...they may not know the exact date, but they know their time here on earth is fast coming to an end.

    No. There's so few real, true surprises in life. Besides, if I knew then I'd waste my time counting down the time. Who wants that?

    That cat in the nursing home knew too. News story about it. That cat didn't let them go alone. It always jumped up on the bed with them and stayed there until they passed.

    One of my dogs can smell my RA. When it is on hiatus, she wants to play ball. When I can't throw it, or even get out of bed, she licks my wrists and fingers, ankles and toes, one elbow. She knows. Animals can tell, too. Wish I could. I have everything in order too. I'm just biding my time. When the ex is gone and the fur kids are gone, there is nothing left here for me.

    You guys have to read a great book - "Heaven is for Real."

    A kid's view of heaven. He briefly went there during surgery and wow! What a story he tells.

    I will look it up.
    I have a fascination for near death experiences too. I read many stories about it when I surf google.

    Right now, I'm going to surf to bed. Its 5am. Maybe I can sleep now.

    If I were terminal....I would want to know

    Otherwise, I would just as soon go on with my life on a day to day basis
