I haven't come to terms with my own death even though I often act reckless because sometimes I honestly could give a shit if I got hit by a car and died. I am mostly scared of the nothingness of death; ceasing to exists at all makes me feel sometimes that my life here has zero meaning except when it comes to influencing others' lives.

I haven't and sometimes when I think it out in any great detail, the idea of it somewhat scares me but I know that it's something that will happen no matter what so I try not to worry about it. I think you only really come to terms with it once you come face to face with it, right at the very end when you have no choice but to accept it. I don't worry too much about what is on the other side (if anything) because I'm sure I'll have time to get to that afterwards.

I think the most about how I'll feel in the final moments (if I'm even aware of what is going on, that is). I wonder whether I'll see things like others seem to or if my body will feel different in any way. To put too much thought into it can be debilitating though and I try not to linger on the subject.

I realize that everyone must die and I also realize that people make the argument that living forever would be pointless, but I guess I am different because I would like to live forever. I really enjoy life.

but the mortality of our species extends long beyond our individuality. influence can ripple for millenia, maybe longer.

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away

If you enjoy life, that's a point to life right there. Not really any reason to worry about it further. Most animals don't even process their lives to the point that they recognize "happiness," they just want to survive as long as possible and reproduce. We're not so different really, having an expectation of influencing the universe just seems unreasonable and leads to the kind of crippling malaise you're describing.

It's gotten almost that bad a few times. Last night was the worst. But I hung in there. Cant let my mother win by dying first.

Side note. I think I made it worse by taking a Mucinex to break up the phlegm. I think the added froth helped block the swollen air passages. Could be just coincidence/ false conclusion but I am going to leave it as anecdotal evidence and not try confirming my hypothesis by taking another.

Have you heard of or tried the lung flute? It is designed to create a 15-25Hz vibration in your airways that helps break up the mucus as well as helping the cilia to transport it.

just because you die and cease to be doesn't mean your life is meaningless... unless you don't do anything to make it meaningful. IMHO that makes the time you have here even more special and precious. Are you wasting what time you have?

you wouldn't even fucking be here if the millions of people who live and died before you, who made it possible for you to fucking exist, had not done their part. you are not just an individual, you are a link in a chain extending back millions of years. will that chain carry on into the future? are you the weakest link?

you don't need to do something spectacular to change the world either, collectively individuals just honestly trying to be better people from day to day can be more powerful than any one person could be.

we could have been living in a utopia by now if we had prioritized correctly. instead most of our endeavours have involved finding a better way to kill or screw the other guy.

what a fantastic legacy we will leave. sometimes I wonder if we deserve to survive...

at any rate, quit your fucking bellyaching you fucking pussies. get busy living or get busy dying.

I am also on a death kick recently..

I hope to go out unconsciously from copious amounts of medication or something quick, like a car wreck or car target. The way we treat our old people in this country, I'd rather die sooner than later. This way I can haunt the cunts that pissed me off in the previous lifetime.
And none of this move objects around lightly shit either. I'd be a badass poltergeist, throwing shit around and waking them up at sleeping hours!
