Well I have lupus. I'm slowly dying anyway, so I try to have everyday.
Same thing I'm already doing ... Since I know that everybody IS slowly dying. It's just a fact of life, and the Law of Entropy.
Live each day to it's fullest!!
I would try and visit all my relatives (first) and friends (second) to tell them how important they are to me. Then I would take a real vacation with my son, something that would give him some wonderful memories of our times together. Lastly, I would write my son a letter for each milestone he would hit without me (marriage, having his first baby, etc.) so he would know how much I loved him.
I just know my limitations, take my meds, and otherwise live life to the fullest. Once you have accepted it, it doesn't worry you anymore. :)
Not a lot. I certainly wouldn't dwell on it.
One thing worth doing would be to make sure that those who depend on me would be able to cope.
Panic and cry.
Once you reach adulthood and have finished growing, you effectively start to slowly die. So I would keep on keeping on. If I found out something might actually be speeding up that process, I would evaluate if there was something I can do to stop or slow it, and what that would do to my quality of life. I wouldn't put too much effort into something that would make miserable for a few extra weeks.
I would make the most of everyday.
I would re-do my will. Liquidate. Save up medication to have control over timing. Put the papers in order. Call everyone to chat about everything except my health. Travel to the Isle of Sky, the Orkney Islands, Italy, and Sweden. I would buy only single malt scotch, get another cord of wood for the fireplace, and settle in for a beautiful Canadian winter
My dreams coming true. JEEZ!!If you only knew why I said that.
I'd hire a funeral director, less stress and more time to spend for the rest of the family.
Well, in a sense, aren't we all?
My response has varied at the different times in my life that I have been consciously aware of that fact.
We already are .. That's why it's important to never take life for granted.
Couple of them noted this, but at a certain point we are all slowly dying.
Everyone is slowly dying. It usually happens around old age, or 100 if yer lucky.
