Charles Krauthammer has two weeks to live. If you had two weeks, what would you do with it (yes, I realize he won’t be doing anything due to his condition but I’m asking about you). You have a fully functioning body and mind. What do you do?

I would spend that time, making sure a detailed care plan is in effect for my husband. Where would he live? Who would take care of his daily needs ... medications, recreational activities, doctor appointments, finances and more? It would probably fall to our daughter, but I would have to prepare her, in great detail.

Hard question.
I wouldn’t want sympathy from family or friends so I’d be gone for a while.
I’d love to see a few old girlfriends but I don’t know why.
I’d apologize to everybody that believes I harmed them including that jerk I had a fist fight with in HS.
I’d love to meet Kay41 & EarlyBird face to face.
I wouldn’t sleep. It’d be crazy to waste those hours.
I’d sit alone in a field, on a hill top or in the woods for a while.

Put as much of my life in order as possible so my family was prepared for my death.

I would begin the Gerson therapy ASAP. It’s helped people that were told by MD’s there was nothing else that could be done. Many are now cancer free now.

My dad was given 8 weeks to live with his cancer diagnosis. He made sure everything was in order financially, said his goodbyes to friends and family members and did the best he could with the time he had left. I would probably follow a similar path.

I can’t think of anything I would do, because I already do pretty much whatever I want. Whether you’ve been given a date, or whether you’re just waiting to be surprised, you started dying the day you were born, and should live life and make your plans accordingly.

Probably take a few days to get everything in order.
Then spend time with my family and loved ones.
Finally, party hard - hookers and cocaine.

That makes me sad. Krauthammer is a decent man. If I knew I had 2 weeks, I’d spend that time with my family. I love them so much.

If it's certain (for the sake of the argument), I'd choose my own way to die - suicide. Most likely jumping from a great height.

Krauthammer is wheelchair bound. He’s often a reasonable voice in the media. I attribute that to his predicament and being an M.D.

thanks everyone. we are trying to stay positive. she honestly doesn't even look like she's battling stage 4 cancer, or even any cancer for that matter.

her next round of chemo starts Wednesday and then she goes in for a scan to see if the tumors shrunk.

Last year they gave my dad 30 days to live. He lasted 10. We spent our last days with him making him comfortable and feel loved. I shared with my Dad some things I had never told him (mostly from my time in the Navy) because I had not wanted him worrying about me. With two weeks, I would want the same. I would write my obituary. Spend time with the family. Say my goodbyes. Express gratitude to all the great people in my life. Forgive anyone that I may not have. Eat lots of ice cream & pizza. Screw the gym....

I'd go to California to train Karate with Sensei Oshiro and go to the beach every day. Or maybe, just take a flight to some island in paradise.

Actually, I'd put my ear to the wind, follow Tema's screams to you, and talk you into Unignoring @pof so you two could make nice.

She's accused you of sexually harassing her in PM, but I think she's mistaken.

Scuba diving to the very end.

I do. My family rented “a yacht” (yeah, what we call a yacht and what they did are two different things) and sailed and dive the Caribbean, the Bahamas and Cuba. Great trip. We wreck dived at night. It was amazing. It was the summer before we came here. St Maarten, St Kitts, Saba, St Croix, St Lucia, Turks and Caicos, etc. Cuba has great diving, oddly enough.

I think 5 autistic sons and a bi-polar son are enough to deal with. I really want to dry suit dive but my seizures are getting worse so my parents won’t let me take the classes.

Sorry to hear that. They should still adopt me. I’m not to hard to deal with. I come with my own house, wife and a granddaughter for them! She scuba dives as well!
