““Death & Dying Part Two — Death and dying part two is now that I have finished my tests and my doctor called and said to call him I am thinking about my life. My life has been quite the adventure. Really it has. I am glad to have been here and glad that I got the chance. I am glad of all that too. I seem to have had quite the luck and quite the chance at life. I have done much. I have done a lot. I have even given some back. I did like collecting. I did like philanthropy. I did like music and I do like movies. I wanted to do a play but I never did have the funds. Maybe now that I am getting a new place with my Section 8 housing, I may. That would give me a couple hundred more bucks a month. My payee said today that I might even be in a higher category now that I’ve turned 65. He said that today. I like that. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a thousand bucks a month? I will have to wait until April 3rd to know or maybe this Friday I will know because he’s going to check and see and then when we meet that day, he will tell and show me otherwise we have to wait until I get my social security check on the 3rd of April 2015.
Death and dying part two means that soon my life will end. I have already faced that. I know my body is dying and giving into the disease. I can’t keep my food in and it looks like blood when I have my movements. I have a lot of pain and nobody ever addresses that. I have pain all day long. I tire easily and run out of breath. I hurt. I am dying and I know it and so do my doctors and friends. So I am dealing with it okay they said today, I am dealing with it okay.
As far as regrets go, I have none. I did everything I set out to do and more. Isn’t that great? I think so. And now I tire of typing and must stop.
Kindest regards me.
PS: I wrote this and finished at 5:56 p.m. today March 25, 2015.”
