I would put an end to my life while I could. Certainly wouldn't wait for the very end.

Get my affairs in order, spend as much time with loved ones as possible, make arrangements for my pets, and prepare myself mentally and spiritually for the next phase of my life. I believe in God's promise of eternal life and do not fear physical death.

^^ This. And, although I am not a person of faith, I do believe that people of faith, really strong faith, often are more at peace and acceptance with end of life issues because of it.

Empty all bank accounts and do some kick butt traveling! Roll around in the sand, lay in the sun. Plan my funeral and party like a rock star!

Well, I'm very sorry that you are having to face this. People tend to shy away from bummer situations such as this. My family has some experience with that. May I ask your age? I was just wondering how full a life you lived thus far. If ever you need someone to talk to, I'm all ears. I mean that.

Rent a Beach house and live the rest of my days watching the sun rise, and sun set with my husband of 19 years...slow peaceful walks on the beach, listening to the sound of the waves, and the gulls, nothing sounds more peaceful or more beautiful when you take the time to listen.
