    A "dead man walking" is someone who is in great trouble and will certainly get punished, lose their job or position, etc real soon.

        The expression refers to people in prison awaiting execution.
        Although they are alive, they have nothing to live for.
        Although part of your body may in a sense be dead, you have everything to live for.

          Yeah, like "fat chance" and "slim chance" meaning the same thing!

              The simple fact that you are here and interacting with others shows that the most important part of you is working just fine, in spite of all the shit that has happened to part of you.
