Me too Candie I was forced into swimming lessons in Grade one. My swimming teacher who used to call me Dorothy,had to jump in one day and save me, I was drowning in the shallow end, and I did not realise I could have saved myself simply by standing up, oh the shame, will never forget that. On a serious note, (although that is true) drowning would be horrendous!!. Can't imagine how bad.
Me too. My first swimming instructor threatened to LET me drown if I didn't mind her. I was too frightened to put my ears into the water. Needless to say, when my mom found out, I was pulled from there. But, my mother continued my lessons over the years. Finally, I got brave enough to walk off the end of a diving board in the deep end. Everything was great until I forgot to swim and panicked. Had to be rescued by the lifeguard. It is a horrible feeling. I can swim, but I don't like being in water over my head so that I have to prove I can. Over the last few years I've forced myself to more just so that I can get over that apprehension.
On a serious note I have to agree totally. I saw someone in my family die from cancer,my step-father, he was a strong fit man, and after been diagnosed I watched him slowly dying, becoming a skeleton of the great man he was all in a matter of four months. It broke my heart to see some-one go this way,to see the suffering so great from another human being.
How would you know the worst way to die until you have tried them all? Thinking about it is only going to raise your blood pressure and up your anxiety levels. Personally, I have put in a request to the Universe to die peacefully in my sleep as a healthy 112 year old surrounded by my loved ones!
I don't really care how I die as long as it is swift and painless. I am not into suffering, nor do I like seeing/hearing others suffering. I just want the black curtains to fall for the last time as if the rope dropping them broke.... fast!
Ok I am at my end! I seem to be having an issue with HP. Everytime I flag something I end up getting flagged. Yesterday I published my 2nd part in a 3 part series on Jeffrey Dahmer. Ads were taken and I was fine with that considering he killed people, even though I see plenty of serial killer hubs...

One such proof is as follows:Let it be noted that though Christians believe that Jesus (peace be on him) after his arrest through the betrayal by Judas Iscariot, and crucifixion -- and...
What is the way that you would least like to die?Caught in the path of stampeding raccoons? Murdered by your imaginary friend? Catching rabies from your favorite teddy bear? Seizing up all brain function after watching one too many reality shows? Anything involving an erection lasting more than...
