After watching Plastic Memories end a few days ago, I seem to have realized what would I have done.
In reality some people have predetermined deaths by diseases or viruses, either way they know when they will most likely die.

My question for you is what would you do if you know you have 3 months to live.

First I am going to have a good talk with my family and close ones, quit my job and try and enjoy my life for as long as I can.
At least, that's what I say now, while I am still in good health.

In reality, I don't know how I would even respond if I were to recieve knowledge of when my life would end.

Hmm, that sounds pretty realistic considering most people would freak out knowing when they will die. Me on the other hand, I could see myself trying to deny it.

You're dying everyday. Don't wait for a diagnosis to tell you that. People blind themselves to death until it's right in their face. It's always there, every minute of every day, so live how you would in this situation every single day.

Like AiYumega said, we are dying everyday of our lives so we might as well go out and live like every day is our last. To answer the question though I would probably sell any belongs I don't need, pack a back pack with necessities, and go to the airport. From there I'd just take my money and hop on any flight that calls my name.

I'd say good bye to my family, and go for a swim.

Check out the Kübler-Ross model.

I would pre-arrange my funeral, write a will, set aside money for the funeral, and spend the rest in various (possibly illegal) ways.

I'd feel relieved. Probably wouldn't do anything though. I don't care now and I know I sure as hell wouldn't then lol.

Think this body got another 10 or 20 years left. Or in my worst luck... I'll live till 60+.

To answer the question, I wanna meet my fav celebrity (Christina Aguilera)... but in all my years of following her news etc... i've never seen her go visit a dying person. That's something Taylor swift would do... and I don't like taylor swift enough to want to meet her on my deathbed...

Maybe it's the culture I was raised in but I'm not that afraid of death. We talk about it constantly and most Mexican homes have pictures of their ancestors in their homes. My relatives know that when I die there is to be only sunflowers at my funeral because white flowers are way overdone.

If I had three months to live I would just enjoy the heck out of those months.

I think I'd be glad, I don't really care too much about it but I'd rather know when I am going to die.

Although in Japan, the idea of "cursed" inescapable predetermined death--like the promise of "You will die in seven days" from Ringu--scares the crap out of them.
It's one thing to talk about fatality when you're bragging yourself up, it's another thing to now have it as a fact with collectors at the door.
