    yep. hip problems all his life with replacements and then amputation of one leg at a time.

    A person should be allowed to decide when enough is enough.

    I agree as well we allow people to suffer greatly much longer than they should.

    "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, champagne in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming.
    WOO HOO!!, what a ride!!!"

    As horrid as it might sound, they were actually rather optimistic about dying instead of pessimistic about living so it didn't amount to a series of crises. I might be kind of odd that way in that I don't freak out when someone implies death might be pretty okay.
    The old folk's you're hearing this from are most likely baby boomers (my generation) that has always been the goingest & doingest generation of all. Boomers don't like not being able to do what they want , when they want, since age always slows down the human body.

    Boomers don't take kindly the aches and pain and the diminished abilities of their bodies so they complain.

    I've accepted that I can't do all the stuff I used to nor run hither and yon like I used to. I now am calmer , more quiet, than at any other time in my life. For me a hot time on Saturday nite is a good supper, a pipe or two, and a cup of good coffee afterwards then off to bed.

    Life can be either conflict or peace it all depends on what you choose.
