    It'd Be a Blessin But..

      I think it would truely be a blessing from God. But-when my grandmother and aunt was at the nursing home, I would look around and just think. What if I was here-would I truely be happy? What if I had to depend on somebody to wait on me and care for me. What if I was a...

    Statistically I shouldn't be living much longer. I've already outlived my father and my mother was killed by the VA. I don't smoke and have maybe one drink a day. I don't do drugs. I am overweight but my blood pressure and cholesterol are OK. My job has a lot of stress but I...

    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...

    So How Should We Be Treated Fair

    I think almost everyone would agree, we do not want to be living very old, that we could be a burden to our loved ones. Once we come to realize that we are getting old comes the idea of fears from getting old. Fear, mostly of becoming to be a burden. But who knows what would...
