Mine is dying alone. Meat Loaf was so fortunate to have his family by his side in his final hours. Yes, this is a depressing poast, but it reminded me to tell the people I love how I feel before something happens that deprives of that privilege.
Not afraid of dying, but do fear death before enjoying good retirement years. I’ve had an unusually high number of coworkers die very soon after retirement.
Curious about something. For many years after graduating college I had these recurring dreams that I was suddenly in class and was totally unprepared for an exam. Or I would dream I had skipped class all semester and suddenly realized I had missed a bunch of assignments. Anyone ever have college related stress dreams like that? I was a good student and never did that stuff in real, but still had the recurring dreams. I got old and finally outgrew them I guess.
and I have heard other people say the same thing so It is not unusual- mine might have some reality to it since I got food poisoning the night before my 1st semester exams started & missed the first 3 days
I have a very similar recurring dream. I have forgotten that I signed up for a class and haven't gone all semester, and it's too late to drop. The final is coming and I'm trying to figure out if I can pass somehow. I've probably had this dream about once a year for the 36 years since I graduated.

fed up with it pdq and returned to work when called upon by an old friend.
Our large family had a big laugh when we realized that only the oldest and youngest still work...The rest, including spouses, are retired, taking it easy.
Just have spent too many years in the business world, constantly dealing with people and money to give it up. Even at 75 I like the interactions, and the continuous dealing with a myriad of issues. My oldest grandson jokes about it, saying, "You work like you drive...full speed ahead." lol
