How are you gonna die?

[deleted account] ( 46 moms have responded )

I know this seems kinda morbid but have any of you ever thought about or had any indication of how you might pass? I've had the same reoccuring dream for years now and every time I die in a car wreck!

@Sarah,

I so did NOT need to know about STD's in nursing homes. Blech! LOL!



I'll make sure we take sanitzer around and sanitize everything before we have sex there. *Mental note to self* Check!

My MIL works as a RCA ( Registered Care Aid ) and she's walked in on many an elderly shag fest! LOL!

@Suzette
Old people sex in nursing homes is not all that uncommon. My husband used to work as a paramedic and often got called to the nursing home. He still shudders when thinking about all the STD's he saw there!

Hmm... never really thought about how I will die... but if it's possible to die from doing excessive amounts of laundry, that will sure be the death of me! Lol

Nikki, if you're not the type that likes longer movies, then it might not be for you. It's pretty drawn out. I have to be in the mood to sit down and watch it. My hubby didn't like it either and, though he doesn't like to admit it, he does like chick flicks. lol

I think I am the only person in the world who didn't like the notebook! However that being said I did watch it when I was pregnant and I was really not myself, so I may have to watch it again just to be sure.

@Dana,
"And re: The Notebook -- I snotted and bawled like a toddler."

I did that with P.S. I love you. But I love the movie The Notebook, then again I love any movie/book that Nicholas Sparks is involved with. LOL. Nights of Rodanthe also made me bawl. :)

@Gillian,
"I haven't seen the film notebook but Iain I say we are going to die when were both somewhere in our 90's lying together in bed holding hands - hopefully!!"

Josh and I were talking about how we're going to die, we believe we'll pass in a nursing home. We're going to give the nurses hell, chasing one another around in our scooters, demanding that our grandchildren bring us cigarettes (LOL) and sneak them to us, and give them money and stuff to do it. And terrorize our children well into our old age. He says that the nurses will likely walk in on our old perverted butts attempting to have sex (he's such a perv ha!) even though he'll have to pop a whole bottle of viagra just to try. He's got it all played out in his head that we're going to die attempting to have sex in our old age... LOL!

Holy shit Dana and Emma.. that's way scary. You're both very brave.

I've always thouhg that I wouldn't live to an old age, although the people in my family tend to live into their late 70s and 80s (my maternal grandfather just turned 90 last Friday). Despite the longevity there's a lot of diseases that run in my family, like diabetes, heart disease and cancer, so I'll probably die from one of those.

It would be nice to go the way Gillian described but, for me, I don't think it's in the cards.

Yip i kind of wish he had bought it as it was my Dads watch i kept it as a keep sake after he died, that's actually how we know it was the same watch i had my dads birth date, and the day he died engraved on the back,
my hubby only told me about the watch as those dates where my alarm codes at my flat and when i gave them to him he asked me if i used to have a watch with those dates engraved on... Freaky small world

WOW! That's super freaky.....kind of a sign or somethin?

@Gillian you have to watch it, with a box of tissues!

I swear Noah in it is so much like Jesse its not even funny! He'd like to think he is more of a tough guy, but every time we have a fight i find him latter either writing me a letter or having a teary on the couch watching the notebook lmfao!

I don't think he did much hopscotching. ;)



Yeah...the robe and sandals probably would make that difficult. Then again, we ARE talking about someone who was able to walk on water.



I bet he would have kicked ass at Double Dutch. :)

OMFG DANA and EMMA, I would have died of a stroke on the spot, you are both so brave, I am so paranoid of break ins, to the point I am a little obsessive and psychotic, I really don't know why, I wish I wasn't and I know stressing won't change anything. But anyway that's just me!
I want to die like Gillian said. very sweet.

Strangely im not scared of home invasions as ive been through one and survived with only miner injury.

I fell asleep on my couch and i sleep like the dead, I woke up for no reason as i opened my eyes saw my microwave walking past me, sat bolt up right and screamed the loudest scream only to have my microwave thrown at me thankfully deflected it form hitting my head stood up to chase the guy out only to get pushed back on my couch by the other two guys as they tried to get out i chased them screaming some of the most disgusting language you could ever imagine, I woke people up a block away with my first scream, every one came out of there houses every one with a panic button hit it, sadly to late to catch the guys but about 20 armed response cars arrived. the police took about 4 hours to pitch, but i was a very lucky girl. they had cleared out half my flat and taken the watch off my arm while i slept, The lucky bit was that i had woken when and how i did i scared the shit out of them just in the nick of time the police found my carving knife at the end of the couch where my head had been i had not realised there had been someone standing over me with said knife at the exact moment i woke up, we have a lot of robbery's that turn to rape and murder and it looked to the cops as that was what was in store for me.

Im not scared of home invasion but am scared of cars to the point where i don't drive im so nervous that im actually dangerous, so i only drive on Sundays to the local shop but i wont drive with my kids in the car. Most of the people ive lost have died in car wrecks.

I really would prefer to go quick and i really don't want to get all old and frail ,

@ Carol thats the funniest thing ive heard all day lmfao! :D

@Sara we both love the notebook thats why we named Noah Noah, because when the notebook came out every one we knew kept telling us we had to watch it because Noah in it was so much like Jesse and omg! He even looks like him! So then we had to name our baby Noah lol

I'll probably get pecked by a chicken in the shin which will get infected and require having my leg amputated. But the infection will spread and I'll end with flesh eating disease. They'll amputate my other leg, and then the left arm and then the right arm, and then my eyeballs... and the freaking chicken will have pecked me to my death.

Either that or sitting in front of the tv drooling in soiled diapers in some nursing home.

[deleted account]

Aww Sunny....I think it'd be nice to die like Noah and Allie in The Notebook! But my husband is 9 years older than me and doesn't have the healthiest habits. So chances are I'll be a widow in a few years.

Here are some possible explanations for Jesus H Christ.

Well i think im going to be hit by a car while walking! Im almost sure of it! I had always said that that was how i would die. I have been hit twice and had alot of near misses, you'd think i would be more careful lol. One of my close friends die while out on a run when i was 14 and im like, yep that will be me too. Although Jesse keeps telling me that we are going to die like the old couple in the notebook, pfft boring lol!

i'm pretty positive that i'd stand there like a tard and get killed or raped. the whole earthquake shaking my bed and me thinking it was a rapist showed me how spineless i really am. i am amazed by you dana!

I have no idea how I'm going to die, I haven't thought of it really. I'm also terrified of someone breaking into our home though. I'm planning on taking some self defense classes after my little one is born and I'm healed up though. I have no idea why I'm terrified of a home invasion, I just am. The whole thing creeps me out.



And Krista, is this what they mean "Jesus Hopscotching Christ" when they say Jesus H Christ? Sorry, i've always wondered but never heard the full version... lol.

Wow Dana!!! What a freaky experience!! So glad you were ok! Quick thinking!
Judging by the state of the lift in my building, I will die in that when the rusty rusty cable breaks. Or my stupid old hot water system will spontaneously explode. Sigh.

[deleted account]

Thanks for the support ladies; I was actually really surprised by what I did! You just never know until ur in that situation! I think I miss DC more than anything... ♥....he died Feb.13/08!

[deleted account]

For you gals that are a little apprehensive about gun use:

We have a gun hidden beside our bed on lock. When I was a kid my dad taught me how to shoot. We practiced and practiced until I got pretty good. He told me if I'm ever home alone and someone is breaking in that I should yell, "stop! I have a gun!" and if they don't stop aim for the knees. That way you aren't killing them, you are just stopping. But if they raise a gun at you, shoot! So now that I'm married, my husband taught me how to use his gun and it's right there by the bed where I sleep. My husband works nights so it gives me a little peace of mind when he's gone. Oh, and it's not in a place where Eliza could get it, even accidentally.

Dana, I'm very impressed with you!

Honestly I don't know how I'll die and don't really think about it often. I do have a few heart fluttering moments during any hurricane, because like Jackie said they cause tornadoes. And the wind can blow trees on a house. During the last hurricane, Gustav, a friend who was inside had a tree fall on her and it broke her neck. The same hurricane also destroyed my childhood home that my parents had just moved out of. Luckily, no one was living in it yet. But the tree that fell on the house was right on top of my sister and my bedrooms which is scary to think about because we've gone through many hurricanes in those rooms with nothing ever happening like that. So yes, I do get scared during hurricanes but I'm not really scared of dying in one.

By the way Dana.... You're a strong chick! Luckily we have guns in our home (Jons a hunter) and fully intend to use them if I have to. Shoot first, ask questions later :)

Yet another great topic...



I am Terrified of tornados. I just know that it is going to be the death of me. I live on the east coast and tornados are few and far between but I just KNOW that when a major one hits... it's going to hit ME! I think it may have something to do with the fact that there is really now where to hide. You can't run from the SOB... where ya gonna go? Basements aren't common in this area. We have hurricanes. But GUESS WHAT hurricanes produce? Thats right... TOR*EFFING*NADOS!! The fear has gotten worse since Allison was born. If there is a storm coming on a hot summer day, my anxiety level skyrockets and I lose all sense of composure and reason.



I have nightmares about them ALL the time (that and spiders but that was another thread).

OMG, Dana!! that soooo freaking scary!! i have the feeling that i will die in a car crash, but i'm terrified, very unrational fear of a home invasion. i often play situations in my head about what i would do, how i would react, what would happen with my kids, what if the guy used my kids against me? anything. chad even suggested today that we get a gun (again, grr) and i just know i would panic so much that a gun would be useless for me, and the guy would end up getting the gun somehow and then i'd be screwed. i live in iowa, no earthquakes happen here, although there is a small fault line. one happened in 93, i think, and i didn't even feel it. well last year another one happened in illinois, and i felt it here. in fact it woke me up at 4:17 in the morning. i awoke to my bed shaking. the very first thing that popped into my head was there was some cracked our whacko under my bed fucking with me before he raped me. i was paralyzed with fear. i don't know how you got through it. strong woman!!

[deleted account]

I definitely don't think it was funny.....I still have anxiety about it but I was reminded of what happened when LaCi spoke about her fear of being murdered during a home invasion! I'm just glad I survived!

P.S. Bear spray FUCKIN hurts! I couldn't see properly for days...

Jesus Hopscotching Christ, Dana -- if that's your idea of "funny", you've got one seriously dark sense of humour.

Honestly, I have no idea how I'm going to die. I just hope that I'm at least in my 90's and that it somehow involves a torrid fling with a cabana boy.

[deleted account]

Funny story: ( or not so funny, depending on who you ask?! )
When I was in my first trimester, Chad was away overnight for work and I fell asleep on the couch with my dog ( minpin named DC )......DC started growling and whimpering around 4am but I didn't pay any attention to him and tried to get back to sleep when I suddenly heard this, " BANG, BANG, and by the third BANG " I realized someone was breaking into the house from the basement patio door! I had grabbed my phone to try and call the police but it was off and wouldn't turn on quickly enough and the man in a mask was standing at the top of the stairs.....DC ran past him just before he took out bear spray.....while he was fussing with it to try and spray me I grabbed a vase that was beside me on the end table and ran at him while he was spraying me, hitting him a few times to get by him.....I ran down a flight of stairs completely blinded by this point and ran outside screaming at the top of my lungs, " CALL THE POLICE! SOMEONE JUST BROKE IN TO MY HOUSE! ".....the neighbors were out there instantly and the police, ambulance etc. arrived shortly after! The guy didn't take anything because I'm pretty sure he was covered in bear spray himself but he was gone the same way he came in before everyone got there......my house was a fucking mess and DC had ran out of the house and got hit by a car running scared across a busy road! Very traumatic! Crazy, right?!

water. I've always thought it has something to do with water. Drown. Drive off a bridge. Something like that.



Lately I also have a fear of being murdered during a home invasion. But I think that's just the cabin fever/paranoia.
