With all the medical advances how long do you want to live?
Most of us answer, as long as we can have a good quality of life. That is easy to answer when you are in good health. But when it comes down to it, we just do not want to die. As I walk by lonely and mentally desolate men and women in a nursing home, sitting in a wheel chair, head hanging over mouth open and sometimes the tongue out, just barely existing; I say, I don’t want that to be me, right?
I’ll admit that in the past 20 yrs. I have paid more attention to my health, because I have seen so many die. This is my theory, opinion, or whatever you want to call it. (Some say it is stubborn). I don’t plan to see a doctor until I have serious symptoms. I don’t know of a person my age that goes to a Doctor, who does not leave with a prescription for something. And once they start seeing a Doctor, it never ends. The prescriptions never stop. Once the DR. has diagnosed you, you are afraid to NOT take the medicine.
Of course in this life I have learned you should never say never, cause you just might change your mind.
