    Why worry regards death, we cannot do anything about it and when our times come we will have to go without a wimper. We are born to die and nothing we do or say will change that fact. We can kick furniture stamp our feet and take tantrums, we die. Some people try and negotiate their demise, what can we all do, nothing.

    In my twenties I was involved in a nasty car accident and was very lucky to be passed over by the Grim Reaper, and after that time I was lookin at the sky and going down to the coast to watch the sea I became a firm believer that I had cheated death, eventually all became normal again and now I am sixty six years old. I had in ways tried to negotiate my passing and was frightened and concerned about my worries. What a waste of time, 

    I have travelled the world since then and have had a very interesting full life, I now understand we are put on this world to live, we are also around to die. we take life by the scruff of the neck and run with it, we then can honstly say we lived life well, and we go when called

      Sorry, I also have a Chronic Painful condition and the associated Reactive Depression. I have been ill since the 1970s and will die with my Chronic disability possibly by taking Opiate medications for most of my life.

      We all need to live our lives to its full extend, we cannot worry about something that is going to happen at some part of our lives, the only certain thing in life is death and the time of death would seem to be set by higher beings than us poor Mortals.

      I do not know how we can defer a death it will happen, although I will say can you find anyone who can defy a parting by death.

      How do you want to be addressed on a certainty, I do not know your condition and we never know the outlook of the word we all live 

      Try and live your life fully I hope someone will come and try and placate your fears. What I will say however I would not be a human if death did not put the fear of death in my heart. Over the years I have seen a great deal of last days, I would love not to see anymore of it and see only my own parting as I will most probably not see my own death.
