Most likely I would live the rest of my days in bliss thinking that I'm lucky... Until be run over by a truck and my days end.
Having been there, the answer is a resounding NO. You do always wonder if it will return, but you look forward to the future with much hope and want to live as much as you can. Since I had mine, I have done so many more things than I would ever have done. Live life to the fullest. The illness serves to remind us that all of our days are numbered, those of us who have experienced this situation are reminded of that. So, instead of worrying and being depressed about it, we life our lives the way that makes us happy.
You're not living life if you're fearing death. Would seem pointless.
I would think one should save the fear and depression for when they are NOT spared.
No, I would value life even more because I could look at the life that I have knowing that it was almost taken away from me. Now I am lucky enough to still have the one thing that means so much to me.
No, because that's no way to live your life. You have been granted the greatest gift and that's life. Don't ever take advantage of it and live it to the fullest!
i lived through a major health problem. The drs said there was no good explanation why I am still alive, other than a miracle. But i didnt come out of it all happy happy. I still have a hard time dealing with this. Its hard to live when you are scared of something happening again. I cant stand to hear you dont know how lucky you are to be alive.
I am not sure how far out of your ordeal you are, but I can say that the longer you go, the easier it gets.
Live as happily as I am able, but accept some fear is probably to be expected.
No, but I would experience a moment of fear every time a symptom of the former returned until I had it verified that the ailment had not returned.
Already do that now.
I figure because I made it through, then it wasn't my time. So why worry about it. I won't die unless it's my time and if it is my time. Nothing will stop it. Just enjoy your life.
