|I can't say I know anybody who remembers dieing, but I did read some Kübler-Ross books (she's a death-scientist)...|
I guess it's the same with me, I do not fear death but I do fear pain, I fear the instance when it will take years for me to die...
Aon, may I say that it is amazing for me that although there is quite a difference of age between us (to say the truth, a generation) we really seem to have more and more in common.
Yes, I also read a lot of Elisabeth Kübler-Ross myself and began to loose that fear of death I always had since then. And the more I left the path of my "old" religious convictions and educatian and became open to what is important for me today I totally lost it.
My dear wish is to die in dignity...
