Considering my mother’s situation, I have learned something new about death. I think people imagine their passing will somehow be painless. They think they’ll die suddenly or that doctors will be able to control their pain and ease them on out.
My mother is not in physical pain but she is feeling anguish. She is feeling extreme anguish, from which she can find no relief.
I don’t think she ever imagined she could end up like this. Who sits around and thinks that their death will be excruciating? Anyone? Yet clearly some people suffer in agony waiting to die.
This may seem gross to write but you know what? If you think about this for even just a few minutes, you may see how senseless it is to complain about your life.
The fact is your death may be much worse.
Do you expect to die peacefully?
