This one may have no one or clear answer. Every one is different, each with their own experiences etc...
But I'm gonna ask it anyway.
Serious. And a tricky knot.
Some folks, when facing a serious illness, fight and fight for survival.
Some, faced with the same diagnosis, just give up and wait to die.
Sometimes the ones that give up, give in, they seem like the ones who would fight, always seemed so tough, stubborn, and strong. But they just... don't. Or they won't.
Sometimes, the one that fight so d*mn hard are ones you never imagined had that kind of fight in them. Not just hanging on through the pain , but actively fighting... pushing though and taking every step they can...
So... Why? Why do some fight, kicking and screaming, while others just give up and wait for death?
Yeah. Wicked heavy for the opening question.
Some are just that way...
