My great grandmother is 94. Except for being very religious, she's been of sound mind her entire life until very recently. She's having health problems and thinks she is going to die and really I think she's probably right.
She has been having hallucinations about death, interacting with the visions and freaking out. She spent one night crying and saying, "I'm old and I'm going to die," over and over again.
This is a woman who has been extremely religious her entire life. It seems like this would be a happy time for a religious person... doesn't it? I really don't understand. It just seems like she should be excited right now instead of crying and freaking out.
At the moment, there are things I fear so much more than death. I wonder if I will ever feel like she does or if I will embrace the end of my existence.
