Here is a post I have written on death

Thanks, Onyango.

After surviving cancer, I think about it a lot, & have signed the paperwork to donate my remains to science when the time comes.

My husband has a severely bad heart & is on borrowed time, so we really can't avoid thinking about the dying subject. We do try to live each day in the here & now.

Well said Mrs.B but can anybody be sure how they will react at the end, we can plan to keep our composure but fear of death is very powerful and who knows what we will do at the end.

Which is precisely why I have requested that nobody be called to to my bedside to watch me die. I don't want to be seen that way, & the family isn't that close anyway, so why should they make a trip here to watch me stop breathing. We aren't close knit to begin with so anything more would be phony.

I truly hope i have the same resolution you are showing when its my turn, i know how i think and feel now, i just hope i can keep that resolution then, but if i do weaken people will have to understand it will be out of fear and not logic.  

Many end care nurses have said they've heard no death bed returns to religion of any sort.

Anyone who has said their loved one returned to religion at the last moment is either making it up, or these nurses have not been at that particular bedside to hear it for themselves.

I tend to believe the nurses who are around it all the time because they work in these hospices.

Yes I've heard the story from Hospice nurses that the ones who fear and act up at the end are Religious people especially Roman Catholics. I think i heard that from Sam Harris. 

Brain washed from the day they take first breath until their last.......unless of course they can manage to get out......

And that is precisely why you should think about it more often

You are most welcome Mrs. B and my best wishes for you and your husband

I thank you sir.

My husband is doing fairly well for the moment, but he also has a defibrillator/pacemaker combo implant.
