Worried about dying

See also

The phenomenon of death is hard to explain, difficult to understand and scary for the majority. It is extremely psychological, mostly because the people who worry about it the most are living. Dead people do not care. It makes you think more about it when you have been given weeks or months to live.

Scientists and people who have almost died have worked together to understand death a little better. It seems our studies have only taken us right up to the edge. Do you know what happens to your body as it starts to die?

"During the dying process, the body's systems shut down. The dying person has less energy and begins to sleep more and more. The body is conserving the little energy it has, and as a result, needs less nourishment and sustenance. In the days (or sometimes weeks) before death, people eat and drink less. They may lose all interest in food and drink, and you shouldn't force them to eat. In fact, pushing food or drink on a dying person could cause him or her to choke -- at this point, it has become difficult to swallow and the mouth is very dry." -science.howstuffworks.com

Adventist News from Twitter, reports "Death will no longer exist. And sorrow, crying, and pain will no longer exist." - Rev 21:4
