Cremated. I don't like the idea of being stuck in a cold dark hole. Also potentially dug up or built over in the future. I'm going to be cremated and made into fireworks!

This is a tough question. I’m claustrophobic so I’m scared if I choose to be buried and the doctor has it wrong, I’ll be buried alive. And what if the doctor has it wrong and they put me in the furnace while I’m alive...ouchies...

Lol you know it's impossible for them to make a mistake about this anymore right? Back in the olden days when all they had to go on was holding a feather under someone's nose, maybe.

Ummm do you read the news stories about people waking up at their funerals or in the morgue? It happens, mainly in India, lol, but it does happen and it could happen to you.

In any western country it could only happen through extreme medical negligence. They go through a very thorough series of checks including brain activity scans and reflex tests, blood oxygen etc. The reason it used to happen a lot in history is because they didn't understand comas.

If it does still happen today it would be in slums where they can't afford to call an ambulance when someone dies and basically just guessing whether they're dead or not.

Are you planning to die in a slum in India? No? Then you'll be fine.

Medical mysteries, that’s life special....people who woke from the dead. And not all from India or slums.

Whatever your wishes, make sure they are known. I was executor of a close family member’s estate recently. He passed away suddenly and didn’t make his wishes known in his will and it was a conversation we never had. These decisions had to be made by me and it was very difficult and stressful in an already very stressful time knowing what the right thing to do was.

^ burial plots are very, very expensive. The decision I made was cremation.

ANSWER

Whatever is cheapest and most convenient for my family, don't want to burden them with expensive or difficult decisions. I don't care at all either way but specified cremated in my will cos I hear it's cheaper.

I don't like cemeteries or believe in going to a place to celebrate someones life just because they are buried there so I would say cremated. But there are more environmentally friendly options out there that I have been looking at recently and hoping that by the time I go there will be a different option.

When you're cremated, your 'ashes' aren't a fine dust. If I had to compare it to something, It's more like shell grit. I got a huge shock when my mum was cremated 💔

Cremated and sprinkled into the water at my favourite beach. I've planned my funeral- well i've told my husband. I had someone pass away recently it made me really think about what i want.
