I only have a short time left to live and there's so much I regret not doing

DEAR DEIDRE: THE doctor has told me I have only a short time left to live unless they can get me a heart transplant. I am so scared.

I am a 58-year-old man so being honest with myself, there will probably be younger people who they would choose to give a heart to over me if they could find a donor.

I’ve got coronary heart disease. I’ve been overweight since I was a teenager and finally, I’m listening and trying to lose weight, but it may be too late.

There are so many things I wish I’d done with my life.

I’d love to drive a racing car. I love watching Formula One.

I’d like to go up in a hot air balloon or take my missus to Las Vegas but I fear it’s all too late for me now.

I would love to know if there is anything I can do to make my remaining time any happier.

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m so very sorry to hear your sad prognosis and I hope that they can manage to find you that wonderful donor.

It is not a time to regret what you haven’t done but do your best to think about the terrific things you have done – marrying your wife for one.

I’m sure you have many achievements.

You can also find support through a charity that may be able to help you with fulfilling some ambitions (bucketlistwishes.org.uk).
