One of the things I would most “fear” losing is my ability to reason, learn, remember, process information, articulate my thoughts, and comprehend the world around me. Essentially, my mind and sanity.
In my mind, the magnitude of this loss would far outweigh that of losing my limbs or hearing or eyesight – which is saying a lot!
If I were to lose my mind, how would I communicate meaningfully with my family and friends?
How would I know what is real or isn’t?
How would I appreciate the beauty around me?
I suppose the one advantage to losing my mind is that I probably wouldn’t realize what was happening, so I wouldn’t really be present to experience the misery. 😛
What is the one thing you most don’t want to lose?
