Just how long are we supposed to live? Is living longer better?
On the discussion board there is an article on seniors taking incredible amounts of drugs. Seems like so many people are on big time blood thinners with bionic pacemakers that last a long time. If you study the Bible we are promised 70 years, 80 if in good health. Please do not take this the wrong way, but when we artificially keep people alive with drugs and technology, at the end they still can have poor quality of life. As shown on this forum, so many people are outliving their life savings, living longer than their children and caregivers. Is it really worth it? I have a 94 and 101 year old in my life. These are 2 of the most miserable creatures ever. I have to look at them and think about if that is how I want to be at the end. I don't think so. I wonder if at the age of 90 I would stop taking blood thinner, heart drugs and turn off the pace maker and let nature take its intended course.
Folks, I have no intention of offending anyone. Each person's life is their own! But I am interested in what this group's take is on this subject.
