    Besides the typical concerns about pain, I'm not particularly worried about it. I do what I can to avoid it, and I do what I can to leave my mark. As long as I can finish my degree and leave that mark, I'll be fine.

    Also, the neat thing about permanently losing consciousness is that you can't actually experience it. I find it plausible that our experience of death will be asymptotic - always approaching that final moment but never actually reaching it.

    I have a long life ahead of me, so I don't worry about it too much. When my time comes, I won't know it.

    ...Hopefully...

    No not really. I've been close to death before and it didn't change my disposition

    And mate, I'm close to 30. Don't give me that young bullshit.

    Gave up hope that any help was coming after suffering through a horrible 7 year siege. I fought tooth and nail, never giving up, suffering through trial after trial, loss after loss, throwing everything I had to try and find a way out of that fucking siege, but it wore me out, and one day I broke down and decided that I was done fighting for a future I was apparently not allowed to have.

    After I swallowed a combination of pills I knew would kill me easily, I went and laid down in bed, and I remember saying outloud. "Lord, I am sorry I have failed you. Please forgive me, for what I have just done even though I know I deserve none, but my war is over. Despite the hell I was in I still had faith in God, was raised Catholic.

    Then I closed my eyes and cried myself to sleep.

    My heart stopped shortly after and I died. Luckily for me I was only dead for I think 4 minutes before my neighbors who were checking up on me found me and I was brought back. I remember EVERYTHING vivdly about the whole deadening process and what I saw. Ask me anything.

    and boy was I fucking PISSED when I woke up in the ambulance, I yelled at almost every EMT who was working on me because I wanted to die lol, I didn't wanna stay in this miserable life.

    Survived with some liver and brain damage. Personally I believe I made the right choice at the time in regards too taking my life. I had every right too, I was suffering and there was no way out. Inb4 "what about your family?!?!" During the Siege I got to witness most of them die horribly. I still suffer with PTSD, Treatment Resistant Depression, ADHD, Dopamine Deficiency Disorder and like 5 other bullshit issues. Lol now i'm studying Neuroscience, working as a Medical Attendant.

    If I was that neighbor I'm not sure if I called 911 or just stud there watching you die. It takes a lot of courage to finally do it, it would be selfish to force you to go all over this again, because I didn't want to feel guilty. But it looks like his decision was the lucky one after all. Can I ask you why you didn't finish what you've started? You were really destined to put yourself at peace.

    Oh I was fucking pissed, however some strange shit happened when I was dead, and when I came back I realized that I was sent back with orders, because I couldn't get them out of my head for months afterwards. So now I figure i'm stuck here with a purpose and I have shit I was told to do. What is even creepier, is the fact that once I was given a second chance.

    Shit dramatically improved...like....scarily improved and I began seeing signs.

    I swear to God the Creator is trolling the shit out of us.

    There's nothing to get over, once you're dead, your fear is gone. You will no longer be aware, nor will you be able to get over it or not get over it.

    I've almost died before. It was this flight or fight thing that took over, kinda. Everything just went numb, I didn't have time to feel anything. I had a choice to make in that moment, and that was about the only thing that was real at that point.

    I have this odd worry that death will be very boring. Like, you're just laying there, and can't do anything, and nothing happens, and, well, it's boring.

    It would be nice, though, if you could design your own personal heaven...maybe I'll do this, as a writing project! Will probably be NSFW...

    Laugh Kita Welp...this is my life now

    I'm more curious than anything. I've already accepted the fact that one day I will die. Things will keep moving forward an life will continue to be renewed everyday. I've grown curious as to truly what happens next if anything. Regardless of what I personally believe I just don't know. I'm in no rush to find out for the moment though.

    Well for me, my 2nd cat I've had only about 6 months less than I had my old boy who passed away. So she's been in my life almost just as long, and she has had to get used to a) being by herself all day while my roommate and I are at work and b) getting all the attention/cuddles/playtime from me since she's the "only cat" now. I spent a lot of time caring for my old kitty, as he had kidney disease and required a lot of attention. He also was the super cuddler and kind of always wanted to be laying on me or near me when I was at home. Now my other kitty has been more and more affectionate and seeking me out all the time... I guess I wouldn't call it "forgetting" about the one who passed away, but rather now giving all my love and attention to my other kitty and my bunny too. I still have moments when I start thinking too much about my old guy and I get really sad and take a little while to cry and to lament his absence.

    Having other animals to care for does help in the grieving/healing process. I can never have a home without animals <3

    TBH death is something I seriously don't want to have to "live" with anyways I'm still hoping that concious upload to a computer will happen in my lifetime because I'm just wondering what life's going to be like in hundreds and thousands of years

    Í'm afraid of death, but at the same time I wonder if I would want to live forever (until I voluntary decide I had enough)

    I am somewhat hopeful I can ride Theseus's Ship right into functional immortality. If by maybe 2050 or so there's actual brain interfacing and/or augmentations, hopefully I'm around long enough to slowly become increasingly digital. As it's looking so far though, that probably won't be until the next century.

    I'm very bothered by the thought I was born JUST before functional immortality. Seems like a cruel joke.

    I think, when my time comes, I wouldn't mind dying.

    Death is the inevitable fate of all life as we know it.

    Frankly, I don't care if I am going to one day die. I look forward to being old and confusing the hell out of people by pretending I have Alzheimers and/or are deaf.

    You have only one life. Enjoy it while you can.
