    No One In My Family Has Made It to 80 ...

    That's what I consider an old age ...  and it would be unrealistic of me to think I'll see my 80th as well :) ...  Being resigned to the inevitable has lead to a bit of a haphazard attitude toward life, in that while I do try to be as health conscious as makes sense to...

    I Don't See It

     When I was a little kid, I could see myself living to be very old. Now I don't think so. Most likely, I will not live to be very old because of all the damage that I have done to my body now. And I might kill myself soon like in the next couple of years or earlier than that...
