both of my parents have passed away now.....both had terminal illnesses and i did the best i could to care for each of them as the time came near.......my mom was cool about it....she joked about death and would always make light of the horrible news when at the doctors office.....she was even joking about getting the blood cleaned up before my dad saw her about 2 secs before she passed.....and she died very gracefully.......my dad wasnt as easy....he got real depressed about his illness and was angry a lot......there wasnt much i could do to help him with it, but i did get ordained for him to make him feel better......i only used my minister skills for mom and dads funeral and thats it.

2 months after i buried my folks i was diagnosed with lung disease like my dads.....very progressive because of genetics......i dont know if i have dealt with it or not.......the beings that visit me told me years ago that i needed to quit smoking but i figured i knew everything.....and i dont of course........they tell me that im going to be ok soon and i trust them i guess.......its hard at times thinking about not getting to see my grandkids grow up or to see my son finish college or even knowing that my husband will be alone....its difficult.

i was actually kind of relieved when i started hearing that the world might end in 2012 because i figured i wouldnt have to go alone....lol......but i guess in the end we all go alone.......i hope i have a chance to tell you guys some of the things i have experienced in my life......it has been interesting......i would probably already be dead if those light beings had not boosted me up and made me feel better about the whole death thing.......yes, im scared......but what can i do......i will just go with the flow for as long as im here i guess.

what i have learned from this thing is to make every minute count when with my family......we dont argue and we dont waste time on anything we dont have to do.....we enjoy our time together as much as possible.....i will always cherish my time with my parents and hope that other people remember not to take others for granted because they might not be here the next day.....so if you have to say something to someone, it should be something kind.....you would hate for your last words to that person to be something hurtful.....well, most people would feel bad.....some just dont have any feeling towards others but theres nothing i can do about those folks.....just live and love the best you can while you are here because our time is short.

There are things you can do about disease, especially genetic ones. But one needs to be willing to look and try. Many aren't. If you'd like to know more, PM me and I'll send some pointers. (I've tried posting such before and get very little acceptance so now, I will wait till I am asked)

It is tough to deal with loss - I offer all I can, my sympathy for the upset you have had.

i see a lung specialist 45 miles from my home....i see another doctor 30 miles in the pother direction.......im doing everything that the docs have available......i have breathing equipment, oxygen, various other meds........im not really wanting to live longer anyway....people in this world are mean and hateful and misunderstand everything i say all the time.....its probably because i have lost some brain functions and have trouble elaborating properly at times.....i probably wont be here much longer anyway as i seem to have upset people by my opinions so.....well, thanks anyway........but i really dont care anymore.....this forum was a last ditch effort and all i have now is more grief and overwhelming sadness........maybe i will get lucky and pass in my sleep soon......sorry to have bothered you guys with my craziness.

Krazy , it is perfect that you are here on forum and thankyou for continueing to be here :) , there is a lot of new medical stuff available nowadays , also reiki if you have not tried it (is not so new age these days and used in many settings ) is usually very low cost and for some , very full on in it's balancing capacity with the emotional/spiritual/mental and physical bodies for some people , anyway i enjoy your presents here and your openness :D , lsol

I couldn't agree more. Family is so important and I value my time here on earth very much. You will never know when it's your last day. Nobody can replace family.

i know that keeping a positive mindset has helped a lot......also not worrying about day to day stress has helped......i used to stress a lot but now i dont have time for it.....anger consumes people and eats away at their insides until the inside is as ugly as the things they have done.........dad always said beauty might be skin deep, but ugly goes to the bone......and he wasnt talking about looks.....i keep hoping that this year will be the year that people learn compassion for one another and that maybe they could stop being selfish for a minute and see things from others points of view......i can always keep hoping for such a change even if i dont see it as often as its preached.....some people dont know how to say im sorry or know how to really forgive with their heart and some are too proud to admit a mistake....others just dont care at all......just the world we live in.

I agree. Society is long overdue a "reset" in the caring department. The advent of technology has made us as a species even lonlier. Don't kid yourself, facebook is NOT the answer. The average human can only recite 75-100 friends at most. Those of us with 5000 friends or more I question as true relationships take time to mature. There is very little actual "face-time" anymore and our senses to pick up good, evil, love, and hate is being dulled. Family is probably the only social setting that exists for us now. Without family in the 21st century, what do we have? Hmm... As much as I don't beleive anything catastrophical will happen in 2012, part of me wished it did reduce us to huts around a fire pit. At least we would get up in the morning look at our neighbor in the eye over fried rabbit and speak plainly as opposed to anonymously over the internet.

True Nano , i recently had the good fortune of meeting and have staying here at home a few days , a 2012forum member from another country . My intuition allowed me to offer them a stay/visit and also their knowing of themself/mind displayed here on forum was very close to what i expected during their stay . Agree with the family aspect of post very much also , lsol

I would rather pass from this world to the next in my sleep, much like my grandfather did. I think that is the most noble, peaceful, and beautiful way to transition. He actually had a smile on his face as paramedics carted him away. An image I will never forget so long as live. I would imagine that he was given an indication that "all was done as it should have" and that he left us a meaningful gesture that where he was headed would unfold before his eyes with grander experiences awaiting him. I know that part of this was due to the fact that he ALWAYS forgave. Regardless of who or what he never held malice. He always told me never ever to come home with soiled shoes, leave the trouble of the world at the door. Never go to bed with bad thought. Never to speak ill of people, and above all always always always forgive.

We were walking to a neighborhood park one day when a man approached from behind us, reached into his blue sweater pocket, grabbed his wallet, and punched him in the face. The man grimaced at me as if to say "what will you do about it scrub?!". I was insanely angry and had ill intent in my heart, but my grandfather stood up, nudged me to the side and offered the man the money he had hidden in his sock. The man snatched the money and ran. My grandfather insisted that I did not give chase and I was left bewildered, feeling ashamed, and angry... My grandfather seemingly unphased by this said, forgiveness is something bigger, older, and more powerful than you, me, and the thief. Someday you will come to know him as a kind friend. It would be years later when those words would resonate again with all the power implied.

I can say with tears in my eye.. I certainly undestand now, and try my hardest to live by it's principle.

I've had visions of four angels lifting me from a death bed. Put your arms out to their sides like your a cross. They will carry you towards the heavens by your arms.... Surround yourself inside of a sphere, you will be protected from evil...... there is more, but I can't remember at the moment. Each of us chooses where we go. My old dog told me these things, I wrote them down, she passed on a couple weeks ago, the messages stopped. I was ridiculed here as a schizophrenic, now I keep my visions to myself.

I'm having trouble with the written langauge lately.............. (the edits)
