I am on hospice have a terminal illness with just weeks left to live. I am weak and having trouble sitting up or typing -- made worse by a bad Parkinson's tremor. too.

So, last night I got on my computer and started deleting all my sites. Along with my sites, I have approximately 20+ ebooks I have written (my words, my authorship), hundreds of articles, and just started on my 9th magazine.

Question: I don't have the energy to search the internet to learn about selling domain names or domain websites.

I know I used to make a pretty good penny from the books but then as I progressed in my illness I just let things go. So, if you had just weeks left to live what would you do? I know it would help tremendously on funeral costs for my children

      Can you leave it for some close relatives who needs it, or that has always been there for you?

      Give it to anyone, your relative or kids etc. I am sure they will be able to figure out what to do with it.
      Maybe, this might not help with funeral costs but in future, the site might help your kids make some good money.

      Love and prayers to you Baby J.

      Be with your family. Spend time with them. Funeral costs, all that stuff, it gets worked out in the end. Money has zero meaning, and whenever it is needed, appears or some way is found. Love matters.

      I have been close to folks who've passed who left people tens of thousands of dollars in debt, and it all works out OK. Solutions are found. Payment plans, etc. Just focus on your fam and those you love, and spending time with them.

      buddy, i'll talk to you from my heart, the situation you are describing here, is something very sorrowful, but let's be realistic, i don't think the money in your situation is the most important, but for me building more precious connection with your relatives, so that they could have good things to remember after you will be gone. Make sure you spend more time with them for now, and it will be more better for them after you pass away dude. All my regards dude.

      Honest answer. Chances are the income now is not enough to generate much interest to buyers. If you have the energy, put all of your sites/etc into one package that a relative could access and perhaps sell. If not - just forget about them.

      I have a close family member in hospice as of last week. She has no interest in business, in her work, in finances. I'm surprised anyone in that situation would worry abut a business that apparently was abandoned some time ago due to illness. She fixates on certain issues that are not important in the long term. Her doctor says that is part 'chemo fog', part avoidance and part the fear of losing control.

      Your priority now is a good day followed by another good day....don't let anxiety interfere with that. Give yourself permission to let it go.

      I wish you peace.

      I'm so sorry to hear that. In the end, money wouldn't even matter anymore. It can be worked out. Just be present with your family. That's all that matters now. Leave your children good memories for them to tell their children and their children's children. Leave your books behind to someone who needs it. Don't worry about them anymore. Just be at peace and treasure the days ahead.

      I am sorry to hear this, but have dealt with 3 little old ladies (who I love dearly) who have gone through this,
      My mother-in-law left me her copy rights to her books, her business name and her websites. I am continuing the business where she left off. The income helps, so give it to the one who can appreciate it and work it.
      I share the profits with her son & daughter, wish she could see what we have done with her books, though.
      God bless you & care for you.

      I watched my mother-in-law take the slow slide from Parkinsons, so I feel for you even though I have no clue how it feels to experience it.

      The others are right -- time with loved ones is what's most important.

      If this truly eats at you, and you need to occupy your mind, simply make a list of what you have left, how to get at it, and a statement transferring rights to whoever. Then let it go.

      Like Kay said, one good day. Then another good day...

      I wish you peace.

    I understand what you're going through..........I was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer about 6 weeks ago. I'm already only 80 lbs so any of their "approved" chemo's are more deadly to me than the cancer. So I am just fighting it on my own. I'm thinking right now I can do this, but still have the same concerns about getting what I want to wherever I want it just in case.

    I am putting together a list of things for my niece to do for me. I have listed contact info for an online business associate of mine to be sent my ebooks (only one is online now) and she'll put them back online......part of the money will go straight to her, then the rest will be going to animal charities, so I can leave some value in my wake.

    I'm also giving someone my access info for my hosting, website, etc, so that if I check out before I have my site sold (preferably to a present member), then it can be sold and money appropriately split between the person doing this for me and my niece.

    My recommendation, though -- be really, really, really discerning about who you give your information to. There are a LOT of people online that would sell their own mothers for an extra dime or two.

      Yes, be careful who you give information to for sure, but these are not worries people at the end of their life should be straddled with. There are far more important things to be dealing with as you head into the light.

      Yeah - I was a little stunned myself, Kay. I was extremely sick and getting sicker but could not get the symptoms to fall together to make any sense.

      Anyway - I just took off for 10 days when getting out of the smoke. It rained and cleared for 3 days when I went home, but came back extra force in a few days (to the extent you expected to feel heat if you opened the door.)

      I was so damned sick when I moved (first of december) that I didn't expect to make it the 500 miles to my sister's alive). But - I'm an ornery bitch, so here I am. I had to move anyway and my sister and niece wanted me to come down for the xmas season, so I went -- ended up in emergency where I was told that I was anorexic and it was all in my head. A month later back in emergency, I got a doctor that wasn't a testosterone fest and actually took the CT scans in the right place -- and they tell me there's nothing they can do for me but give me a form of chemo that would kill me before the cancer (I only weigh 80 on a good day right now).

      I don't have any form of insurance that will allow for alternative treatments. That's where Ken Strong bit it...........he was on a recurrence of cancer that had been "cured" before so it was pretty nasty to start with.......but he would get an alternative treatment that would be helping, and get cut off at the funding and they'd just drop him off. His family forced him into hospice and that was it. I've been sick over my last conversation with him for years.

      Anyhow -- I'm on my own so we'll see just how able I am to figure it all out.

      So I've gathered up all the information I had when I cured my pup (remember Ricky?) of cancer and browsing new, and I'm hammering this crap. It's ticking me off and I'm not gonna let it sit here and hammer on me without one huge damned retaliation.

      We'll just see what happens. I have to say -- if anything goes wrong, I've had a hell of a ride on this planet and am sure things stay interesting beyond the divide so nobody has to mourn for me.

    Sal sorry to hear what you are going thru.. Look up the Alts there are lot that can help you feel better for awhile. Lost someone who had lung cancer, ended up going that route when they said Chemo would not help. To much cancer at the time. However the quality of life improved for a few months.

      Familiar with alts. I killed my dog's bone cancer so have a good starting base of alts. Not sure how much I can do as it's so late in the game, but I am a little stronger than when I was diagnosed. I can go longer without pain meds, too......even though they've increased my dosage so I won't be "uncomfortable". I'm taking the same amount as I was....but sometimes can hold off a few extra hours so I figure it's stepping in the right direction at the very least.

      I am also living with my sister now and she and my niece make sure I have everything I need or want so I don't have to shop unless I feel like it.......or cook - we eat all organic and all 3 are great cooks, so..........

    Yes, I remember Ricky - ended up a good, and healthy, dog for quite some time. Remember Munch (?) too. Is your sister in California and will you stay with her for now?

    I recall you listed what you had given Ricky....maybe double the dose and try it again? Good luck, kid, keep us informed if you can. 80 lbs? Geez, Sal, that's a stick figure!

      Stick figure.......lol.......I look like an escapee from the Nightmare before Christmas.

      I am using everything I gave Ricky. Those were all for humans and I had to research if a dog could take them or not. I have about 3 more supplements I need to supply yet - but I'm using the best things known to science. If I had 15 more pounds on me I wouldn't even sweat it, but I have to be really careful, and I don't have the ability to eat much at one time so.... Then, too, I have to juggle. I eat to kill cancer for several days, then I eat for weight for a few (have to limit that because it feeds the cancer). Those days I'm still eating my supplements, though. It's pretty tricky.

      I'll be staying with my sister until I'm well......or the rest of my life, whichever comes first.

      This is kinda spooky. I didn't realize that so many people I used to know here are still here. I haven't been here in years......just got a bee in my bonnet and when I saw the OP I felt the need to show some support. Didn't think anyone who remembered me would see this.

    Devastated to hear about what's been happening with you. I hope you manage to beat whatever it is you have.

    I got a phone call from my mum on Monday telling me to get back to the ancestral home on Tuesday for some important news. When I got there the whole tribe was present, brother, his wife, nephews, nieces, uncles, aunts, cousins - the whole lot. This was strange as it's nearly impossible to gather all of us in one spot at any given time.

    It turns out my Dad has been diagnosed with a particularly aggressive form of cancer. The doctors have given him 2 months or less. Of course that could also mean more, but I doubt it.

    I've no idea what's going to happen from there on. It may mean Mum sells the ancestral home and moves in with me (I'm the only one with room to spare), or it may mean I sell my place and move back home. I just don't know.

    Anyway, I feel for you (and Kay as well). I wish I could say something with my trademark cheek and snark to make you laugh or at least smile, but I got nothin'.

      You're still here, too? Whereveropedia.

      Sorry to hear about your dad, Whatty. One thing I'm learning from being sick is that it seems to be harder for the loved ones than the one who is dealing with the cancer. My sister freaks out over everything and anything. It's hard to watch.

      I hope things work out with your housing issue. What some people with a little land are doing in the US is putting up tiny houses on their property for a parent that needs someone close by but wouldn't be comfortable under the same roof 24/7.

      As far as your "old tongue and cheek" -- bet you didn't think it'd be HeySal that would be able to gobsmack it out of you, eh?

      Kay -- just saw that your family has been hit with cancer, too. I'm sorry for that. You're a pretty level person, so I know you can maintain through for her. Peace and strength to you.

    Sal - you'll understand this one:

    Last year a friend was fighting cancer and we were talking about what might lie ahead. She said she was curious to see what the 'next path' would be but then cracked me up with this:

    "If there's a fork in the road and one path leads to the Pearly Gates and the other goes over the Rainbow Bridge, you'll know where to find me. I'm taking the Bridge."

    Needless to say, she was an animal lover...

      I love it, LOL. I've got 5 boys waiting for me across that bridge....and a love for exploring so you know where I'll be off to. Dogs are patient - they'll wait for me.

      I am convinced, for many reasons, that our intellect survives death.......and if there is a way to come back across the dimensional divide, there's a couple of people I really, really would love to haunt a little bit. I promised my niece to leave her a sign of some sort, too so, if this goes otherwise than I'm trying to point it, I'll have a few things to do for awhile.

        If it comes to the worst Sal, (and I sincerely hope it doesn't) Then I have someone in mind for intense haunting. The initials are CW.

          As much as you talk about dimensions, time, reality, etc -- you should understand by now, there is no better or worse, just variable is's. I'm trying to stay in this is for now.

          As far as hauntings.... I've got a pretty good list of people that could use at least one visit myself. I don't want to hang around too long. I'm sure there will be other things going on a little more interesting - after all, it's unexplored territory after this.

          If there was some irrefutably sure way to collect whatever the appropriate form of payment would be cross-dimensionally, perhaps I'd think about it, but I'm not volunteering for any freebies.

            A totally freaked out Claude Whitacre coming on the forum and begging for forgiveness and expressing his sincere belief in continuation after death would be more than enough compensation.

            But I'd rather wait another 20 years or so if you don't mind.

              I don't believe in ghosts. But my wife does. And I told her that if there are ghosts...and I become one..I'll guard over her ....and protect her from malevolent ghosts. I meant it, and she knows it.


              20 years wouldn't be long enough, unless I suffer serious brain damage.

                  There you are Claude, gastone believes in ghosts and if it's good enough for gastone, it should be good enough for you!

    No, Sal you are too spiritially advanced for any of that ghost haunting stuff, a short visit is possible though..

    My Grandmother paid me a short visit, and my Father, etc also tried, but it is not an easy thing to pull off up there apparently, (have to pick the right place and time, and do it without freaking out the target).

    But my intuition, (l know sixth sense) is pretty sharp at the moment, so l do see a full recovery for you, but it will be a bumpy road ahead, but the important thing is it is headed towards the light at the end of the tunnel, (no, not that tunnel, one of our,....never mind, you will be ok).

    I would probably engage someone to run things, such as my best friend and give him the autonomy to make decisions like hiring writers to sell my products (especially since you have so much content) and to contract that 50% of the profits would go to my children's future while he gets to profit the remaining.

    We'll just see what happens. I have to say -- if anything goes wrong, I've had a hell of a ride on this planet and am sure things stay interesting beyond the divide so nobody has to mourn for me.
    Sal. sorry to hear about this. But if anything will beat it, getting pissed off and fighting will do it. If Big C is gonna win, make the mofo earn it.

    Oh, if and when you do cross the bridge, and you see an old black lab with a gray muzzle and a scarred up head from a fight with a pair of coyotes, give him an ear scratch for me...

    Wishing you the best possible...
