How long would you like to live & how/when would you want to die?

Unread post by J0E » 06 Nov 2019, 17:20

Since Irina keeps wishing that someone would 'die', why not ask the forum members at what age when they would like to pass on.

Unfortunately, none of us lives forever.

So choose your age, how much longer you'd like to live, and how you would like to pass away.

Plus - Are you someone who will try to hang on 'til the bitter end?

Or - would you be willing to pass one sooner than that if your physical & mental faculties started to give out.

Let us know what you've learned by others who have passed on.

Discuss.

So far I have no fear of the Reaper, but I do fear the loss of dignity that so many folk must endure as the years march on. At some point I probably would feel obliged to take matters into my own hands. The one fly in THAT ointment would be waiting too long.

Apparently 'dubh, there are relatively painless drugs which can allow people to go peacefully.

But I've read the government outlawed them.

It's said Marilyn Monroe swallowed a drug which has since been banned. Nembutal

I guess the guv, corporations & insurance companies don't wanna make it too easy, eh?

Like, somebody owes them $10 million & he jes' decides ta nuke it, leavin' em holdin' the bag.

Nope, caint make it toooo easy. Otherwise many people'd just copy Marilyn.

I have no intention of dying any time soon. I just hope it will be quick and dignified. However, I don't think I would dare to do anything proactive in that direction.

Any day is great for dying. Death is the greatest of all human blessings.

Joe, I can guarantee you that, should my physical faculties start to give out, I'll be "passing one" sooner than later. If I'm lucky, it'll be a silent and deadly one and you'll be standing next to me.

Try as I might, I can't wrap my head around this.
I want to see my kids grow into adults....and how they will live their lives.....and the possibility of grandchildren and how THEY will do. I WANT TO SEE IT. I want to live long enough to see it.
Death just doesn't seem like a blessing to me, unless you are not enjoying life. :(

We feel what we feel:) I am so happy looking at my kids, but the minute things start to not work, I will pray for a quick end. I don’t want to be anyone’s responsibility.. cept my own.

That said, I wouldn’t do anything to rush things. We are here to examine life. Until the very last day.

I don't like to think about being old. I would like to live forever, just not in a physical form. I think that would be amazing.

If everyone you know dies and you are still around, that’s in my mind a pretty lonely place to be. Your kids are not a company. My kids are my favourite thing to watch and listen to but I don’t “hang out” with them. Not like I hang out with my friends or my partner. Ppl who remember the same things, technologies and events I remember.

But that’s the thing, my mind is the one that feels lonely not my body:)) body is just a shell. And a temple. But mostly a shell.

I believe one would become different, and none of those things would matter anymore.

It would be incomprehensible to explain.

You may be right. I hope we all get what we need and what we want for ourselves. Maybe that’s how it works:)

I'm pretty sure I don't want to live forever.

As soon as things start breaking down.....things that allow me to enjoy life....I'm done.

I don't want to ever be a burden to my children. I don't want them to have to alter their lives to look after me.
I have a pact with hub. I think physically...I could go on for a long time....but if my mind becomes something that doesn't reflect who I am....take me out. I don't want anyone to have to look after me, if I become a shell of who I once was.

Yesterday.
That's when I'd like to die.
I've lived too long already. I am past my expiry date.
The Virgins are calling me home.

And I've got everything done, too. So I'm ready.
Pilgrimage / Hajj to Mecca: Done.
Last Will and Testament: Done.
Funeral and Burial arrangements with the Masjid: Done.
Is there anything else? Did I miss something.
I can't think what it could be.

I'd probably want to die of old age (but certainly not from Cancer).
Problem is, I have so much vitality and zest for life, that it doesn't appear imminent too soon.

Make up your mind. Do you wish to have died yesterday....or do you have a zest for life.

The more you talk, the more it's evident how confused and unbalanced you are. I actually feel bad for putting you on the spot now.
