    Would you want to know the exact day you were going to die?

    Watching bucket list on itv 2 and morgan freeman just said it and it got me thinking about it.

    i wouldnt want to know when i was going to die as i would then be paranoid as to how it was i met the maker.

    what about you other misc users would you want know?

    yes and then i could say what i like on here and not worry about the life time ban

    if i was as old as morgan freeman then id say it would be fine

    but as im not i wouldnt like to know

    I would like to know so I could do all I wanted to do before I died but I would obviously be really nervous as it got closer to the day

    100% agree

    i would love to know since i have been ill i watch my friends and family worry i will die especially when i have surgery or treatments so it would be good for them to know and it would give me a date i know i will be pain free lol

    Well I think some people know when they are going to anyway, My dad knew what age he was going to die, he said it for years and he did. He was in a RTA where a lorry jackknifed.

    I have always said I know when I will as well and my OH goes mad at me for saying it, but I think some people just have a six sense, so I would like to know for sure, not the exact time etc, but the age. The main reason is for practicallity, so that I can have everything in order, will sorted out, insurances sorted, funeral planned, anything to take the stress and worry from my love ones.

    I'd hate to know. Whether it's in 1 year, 5 years or 50 years, I can imagine that it would end up consuming the rest of your life with forever thinking along the lines of 'I've only got X days left now' and so on.

    I know already, that is - unless I get a pardon by 1pm tomorrow???

    if i knew i would be strong enough to deal with it and make the most of what time i had left then yes of course i would, but i am not sure i would be as i am really frightened of dying and leaving my kids without a parent

    Nope live everyday as your last.

    Looking forward to it !

    No, as I would be sure that it is impossible to predict the day of my death and so it would be an utterly useless piece of communication. Much like reading my astrological prediction for the next when-ever in a tabloid newspaper.

    Even if it were possible, I wouldn't want to know.

    It is, however, wise to make a will etc and to make the most of your life as you live it.

    How depressing

    This question all depends on the age group you ask.

    My father in law is a very fit and active 86yr old who has the sharpest mind of anyone I know. His friends have all died and since his wife died last year I can see that he is becoming depressed very gradually.

    We are in our fifties and hoping our twenty yr olds are soon to venture off into their own paths (to you twenty yr old us "rents" also want our space!!).

    The only people I have ever known who want to know are those that are terminally ill (I am a nurse). The romantic idea that you are diagnosed with incurable cancer and then told how long you have to live, persists.but is totally unrealistic. It is just not possible to predict how long someone will live, even with a devastating diagnosis.

    Those that have been given a time (by some idiot) e.g 3 months, are often devastated when they have tied everything up, said their goddbyes, and are still allive 6 months later...(one case I know of, they then committed suicide). Equally as damaging, are those that die before the three months, sudden deterioration maybe.

    The point is nobody is in a position to predict...it is like pissing in the wind, pure guesswork. Which is why all good terminal care teams do not to make such predictions and instead, try their hardest to provide support for the person and their family and guide them through the horrific path they face.

    The other romantic notion is that we drop dead suddenly, or die peacefully in our sleep. Yes of course this happens but they are the exception. The majority of us mortals, gradually decline to where the individual parts begin to fail gradually. Most adapt and cope with the changes without noticing. It is only when we reach the terrible milestones e.g loss of mobility or loss of bladder / bowel control that many can no longer cope and need more support.

    This may be depressing but it is all about quality of life and not how long we have left. I want to be fit and active for as long as I can, not housebound and lonely for the last 20 yrs of my life.

    Depends...... if you knew you were going to heaven or hell. I suppose if I was HELL BOUND, I would have a chance to change that. In fact if I knew when I was going to die I might be more focused on life and make sure Hell was no longer an option. LOL!oO

    You go in the ground, or to ash. Not that you will know anything about it. Why do people still assume they can think.........once they are dead ?
