    I'm seeking answers from those who genuinely, are no longer scared of death. I'm not talking about the act of dying; I think that's a different thing altogether, especially if it involves lots of pain.

    A few years ago, a patient came into the Emergency Department with terrible burns, he was, unfortunately, still conscious and alert. He knew, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that he was going to die.

    He was scared of death, he told us, not for himself but because he was scared of how his family would cope.

    His feelings have been echoed by many of the patients we have seen over the years. They are, often, resigned to their own death, some of them welcome it, but those who have voiced concerns are always concerned about the impact on loved ones.

    A friend and colleague who died after a, very brief, terminal illness was more concerned about his wife than himself.

    So, perhaps, that is the answer - we are scared for those we leave behind.
