When you discuss or ponder cancer death is always included. You would think it’s the main fear factor. It isn’t.
I am not scared of death. I spoke with another late stage cancer ridden friend recently. Same thing. Not scared.
Years ago I played poker in Vegas with a hospice counselor. He said the same thing. No one dies scared of death.
We’re all going to die. We don’t know when. Nothing changed! That’s why death isn’t scary.
I have had two deep desires which have come out since my diagnosis. First, I wanted to speak with people I’ve known a long time but circumstances caused us to drift apart.
It’s been nice to rekindle friendships over the past months. Video makes it even better. We’re back face-to-face.
Second, I really feel an urge to tell the guys I love that I love them. This is not normally a guy thing. So far everyone seems good with it.
I haven’t gotten to everyone yet. Working on it.
