79. I'm very very sorry to hear that, AlienGirl
Edited on Thu Jul-14-11 09:18 AM by mvd
You are a wonderful DUer who I've also known as a fellow mod before. First of all, I'm hoping you survive this, too. It happens. Second, it's normal to fear death. I'll say that I believe in an afterlife, and while I don't have the answers, death has to be a natural part of life. So when we die, it is just something that is like being born, growing up, etc. Nothing we can do about it. That helps me sometimes with my fear.
