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 old lady without any family. Who would find me if I had a accident or died in my house? What if I got to be old and my children basically ignored me? What if..

I'm sorry about your mother. <br />

I'm 21...yes, I do seemingly have a while to go :)

I watched my mother go through the various stages of Alzheimer's. She passed away last year. She was diagnosed in 1995. It was a long and painful trip from go to whoa. She was in a good place, but still... if I have the choice, I'd prefer to die before I reach that age.<br />

You have a long way to go before you have to think about it though. Lots of time to enjoy life. I hope you can :-)

that fear doesn't rule me..i really don't think about old age until the subject is brought up. <br />
but thanx
