Interesting question. I'm 48 years old now and it has only really be in the last year that I have really thought about what it would be like to be at 'death's doorstep'. Being a nurse and having looked after so many people who were dying and also the 'aftercare' you would think I would have thought more about my mortality than many. But this was not the case. But I think I accept death, along with many other health professionals, a bit more than some people?
Excellent question... I take it you've recently had this epiphany? If I remember, I had thought I felt it around my early twenties... 22 23ish? But I don't think I truly grasped it until later on, 27 or 28, maybe. It's still sinking in on some levels, but once it kicks in, it definitly has a profound effect on a person.
