      Yes, is my answer to this question of 'do you ever get in a rut and dwell on death'. One thing for certain, cancer pulls back so many veils, exposing truths we otherwise may never have known; thus, a new life, a different, a better you, maybe.
      I don't fear death, per se, as we will all die but then what? What happens to our physical energy, our essence? Just poof! gone?

      If you are a Christian, you've always known you will have everlasting life in Heaven, so there's nothing to be worried about. It's a wonderful sense of Peace.

      BoiseB, if you are really a Christian and believe the words in the Bible, you have no reason to be worried about H e l l. (I went into detail on the other thread this week.) The Bible plainly says "Ask and you shall be forgiven." It seems like you've read something scary from another religion, or possibly a person told you a falsehood, and you think it applies to Christians. You should probably only read the Christian Bible (if you are a Christian), so you'll know Christians worship a kind and loving God. Also one of the Ten Commandments is "Thou shall put no other Gods before me."

      BethNC, I like what you said about burying your mother in her favorite p.j.'s. I don't want to wear a suit, but I've noticed some people wear something they already had for a dressy occasion---but I've outgrown my old clothes! (I don't guess it would look good to be "flashing" with my top not buttoned!)

      I need to work on that.

    Just when you think you have it bad, you read something like this that shows you that someone else always has it worse.

      There was someone on this site who once said that she thought many of us complained about our scars being too noticeable. She thought that perhaps we were imagining them worse then what they actually were.
      Then I remembered a older man I saw at the cancer hospital, he just had a hole where his nose used to be. Wonder what he might have replied to her?
      I hear stories here that amaze me & I wonder how they manage to survive.

      I agree, there is always someone with a little worse path than you. Molly, I remember sitting in the oncology waiting room thinking that I really should just get up and walk out, that I couldn't do this anymore. Then, the door would bang open from a hospital be being wheeled in. There would be someone in the bed that was barely more than a bag of bones, but there they were, keeping up the fight. And one little lady would make it a point to smile and say something nice to anyone she could see while lying in that bed. Those things will change your attitude in a minute. I wonder how man times this poor fella had somebody tap him and say something like, "hey you got something on your head". People can be mean.
