afraid to die?
 
When you really think about it, the thought of dying can really freak you out, at least it does me sometimes.

I think what really bugs me out about it is the thought of being 90 years old, stuck in a nursing home waiting to die, and all my friends and family are dead... damn I'm freaking myself out right now LOL.

Sheesh... that's one way to bring us down and ruin a day. Think HAPPY THOUGHTS.

It's gotta' be the crappy weather bringing these thoughts out. Yes, I'm with you there, except I'm going to be so messed up on psychedelic drugs, I won't know if I died or am just having a bad trip.

I'm saving up my drug use for when I'm old. I swear to God though, if I end up going in a nursing home somewhere, I'm going to be infuriated in the afterlife. I better go diving with great whites or something.

No kidding. Actually I work in finance for a CCRC, basically a retirment home. There are a lot of people here and they are all really happy for the most part. You would be surprise Matty how everyone here becomes your family.

My wife was a social worker in a nursing home for a few years and she also ran a day program for seniors... I heard all the horror stories. I think I'm scarred for life now... seriously.

I know they have a good life and it's a lot better for them than sitting at home alone. Still, being in a nursing home basically means your life is coming to an end and that's what I hate to think about. I guess when you're in that situation you can't think of it that way though.

I hope when I go it's really quick, or I'm demented so I don't know what's going on.

I also wonder if when you get old you come to some sort of acceptance regarding your mortality.

YUP! I think they realize it is close and have come to closure with it. If you have lived a full life you really can't ask for more.

I live my life without regrets, but honestly it's like there's never enough time in a day for me to get full use out of it.

I've got life insurance for my wife and the mortgage automatically gets paid off on top of that, so I am ready to go. :D

I think you have to. Younger people sometimes lack this sense, but when you get old and your family and friends are gone or going you have to know that you'll be gone soon too.

I guess one can only hope that when they get to that age they feel like they lead a fulfilling life. The most depressing thing in the world would have to be sitting in a nursing home and thinking about all the opportunities and experiences that you missed.
And on that note, I think I need to quit my job and start driving across the country.

When I die, I want to go like my grandfather - quietly, in his sleep surrounded by friends.

I don't want to die like his four friends - screaming in fear as gramps drove off the cliff.

(I kid, I kid)

I honestly don't fear death. We all have to go sometime so there is no sense worrying about it. Ideally I would like to die when I am between 75 and 80 years of age.

p.s. We can all easily be behind the wheel of this car tomorrow:

There's no sense in it, but I fear death anyways. We're designed emotionally to fear death... it's the survival instinct that had been embedded in our head from evolution. I can't really control that.

If you actually think about the possibility of non-existence, it's terrifying. Everything you've ever grown to know and love.... gone.

The only thing I can say for certain is that I won't miss anything, because I'll be incapable of the feeling of "missing". I mean if someone killed you, there would be no way to be mad at them. You'd be dead.
