Re: How does dying feel?
Yes, this post is for real, Lightlife. I probably should have explained why I was wondering about it. Sorry about that.
I'm not asking how you would feel at the moment of death. I mean, how would you feel if you have a terminal disease and are dying soon.
The reason I ask is that for the past year, I have had extreme fatigue, along with other symptoms. In the past three weeks, the fatigue has gotten much worse. Within the last two days, I have gotten to the point that just combing my hair or walking across the room is totally exhausting. Even my heart feels too tired to continue beating. I've also been losing a lot of weight recently without even trying, including 7 lbs. in the past two weeks.
I was diagnosed in February with cervical cancer and was recently treated for it, and I'm worried that these symptoms might be an indication that the cancer has spread and that my body is dying. (I have an appointment with my doctor on Wednesday.) This is why I was wondering how a person feels when they are dying. (Since I've never died, I have no idea how it would feel.)
OK2GO81, I'm sorry about the loss of your loved one. My mom died two years ago, and like you, I was there when she breathed her last breath on earth and took that first breath in Heaven. Like you said, it was very peaceful.
