Slow Death

One Survivor’s Experience
  • Dorothy Paulay
Part of the The Springer Series on Stress and Coping book series (SSSO)


Each of us is destined to be a survivor. Death awaits all of us, of course, but for practically everyone death will be experienced first as a survivor, as someone near or known to us dies. Our reactions to these deaths, along with the culture, race, mores, customs, and ethics of our times, will help to shape our feelings toward our own death. While much has been written recently about the problem in our death-denying culture of coming to terms with the fact of death, for the most part discussion has been in terms of adjusting to the death of a loved one which has just occurred or to one’s own death which is imminent.
