It wasn't scary and by that I mean I didn't get any of the physical sensations we ascribe to fear nor did I obsess about it mentally, if anything it was interesting and induced an,"Whoa, I almost died." type of reaction. Guess I'm just a different breed.


I was almost hit by a car once when I was a kid too, it doesn't have the same impact as an illness because you don't have time to dwell on the possibility of death before it's over and you are safe.

When I was sick I had months of uncertainty and lots of time to think about life, death, everything I would leave behind, never get to do, etc. Before that I was quick to laugh off the possibility of death. Some of it has to do with age too I think. You can't really see the end-game when you are young and healthy. You can understand it in logical terms, but until you really confront it it doesn't seem real.


Well said, different situations invoke different responses. Can't say I have ever experienced any type of critical condition so I will admit I'm quite naive in that respect.Though the acceptance of the situation tends to take the edge off of things for the most part. in the Op's case I would much rather not worry about it since it's out of my control rather than living from a place of fear of what might happen, it's just more enjoyable.

I agree it's no good living in fear, but not caring if you die is different. It seems like bravado to me, but if it's really true then it's not very healthy.
