Apple co-founder and long-time friend Steve Wozniak said on "The Early Show" that Steve Jobs seemed troubled in recent months when he talked about his health.

Jobs died Wednesday at the age of 56 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.

Apple announced in January that he would be taking an indeterminate medical leave of absence. Jobs then stepped down as chief executive in late August, citing an inability to "meet my duties and expectations," stemming from his illness.

"Steve spoke to me of the illness more recently than a few months ago as something that really did bother him, that he did not like the fact that he had been close to death, and sort of survived," Wozniak told "The Early Show" from his home in Los Gatos, California.

"It kind of surprised," said Wozniak. "He's got a logical mind that understands, you know, as he is quoted as saying, that death is really an affirmation of life as part of the circle, and, you know, once you have a healthy thinking like that, you aren't necessarily bothered by that. But he spoke like he was very bothered by it."
