    I was dead for quite awhile prior to being born. It felt like a whole lot of nothing.

    I'm dead inside. Does that count?

    I don't remember being unborn so I can't comment on that.

    Well....when I had my heart attack....my heart stopped beating for a few moments....it felt like....when you go to sleep and your at that point where your half asleep and half awake....very peaceful and sombering at the same time. Realization takes hold and you don't have fear, just knowing that this is really happening. When you know and accept that your about to die it is not as bad as I thought. I was not quite dead long enough to have a NDE but I did feel like I was not alone, like a presence was giving me comfort.
    You think I'm crazy?
    I can promise you too will know what I'm talkin about one day.

    You may have overheard the interns placing bets on your survival or commenting on your natural endowment. You might also have heard the guy putting the tube down your throat talking about his plans for the weekend, or the guy putting the paddles on your chest telling the giggling intern that he'll to do the next shot.

    What? Were you being treated in the Third World? Go back in there and demand you shock treatment, your blower, your central line and your temporary pacer. Those cheapskates cheated you.

    Life is about doing stuff, once you die you can no longer do stuff, so while death is inevitable the longer we can put it off the better (I'm talking in general, of course, living longer only because you are being tortured to death instead of quickly being killed is not better)

    I wish I knew if there really is as much continuity as I think there is. How do I know that the next time I wake up, if I really will still exist and it won't be someone else who thinks they're me because they have my memories. How do I know I wasn't born this morning.

    Really, I do find the idea of dying terrifying. And aging for that matter. I can see age slowly taking it's toll on me, and I am not exactly delighted by this fact. Although I still seem to be as fit as ever though, so not that much of a toll.
