Depends on the culture and habits.
Q. Who wants to live to be 90?
A. 89 year olds.
I do not feel or think what you think people who suffer and are in chronic pain should feel.

If there's nothing beyond death there is nothing be afraid of.
If there is a God beyond the grave... I have nothing to be afraid of.

If life after death was proven fact think how differently people would live their lives! Not only living a life without fear but using your life to work towards a beneficial afterlife for yourself.

I have cystic fibrosis. When I was first diagnosed, the doctors told my parents that I may not live to celebrate my 10th birthday. As you can clearly see, I've beaten that statistic, but I'm still in a fight for my life, and it's a race against time.
In October i celebrate my 40th birthday. The odds that I won't get to celebrate my 40th birthday are 1 in 2....
I'm not afraid of death i cant wait for the next big adventure...
Now go and hug your family, tell them you love them, and be grateful that your life is so simple, because things could be a lot worse.peace,sugarcookie1 S&F

I'm not afraid of death. But I find the thought of not existing, the 'me' being wiped out unfathomable and horrible.
I imagine death itself is just like going to sleep. I mean if you didn't wake up one morning you wouldn't be any the wiser! But if it's true there is something beyond, how wonderful.
It's protracted suffering beforehand that I'd be afraid of.edit on 27-4-2013 by starchild10 because: (no reason given)
