Default a long life (no thanks)

This isn’t a suicide thread it’s just a why do people fight so hard thread.

I understand there’s a primal instinct to survive and death is scary but after you’ve done the things you want to do why not just get fat and have a heart attack or get diabetes or whatever?

You ****ed enough bitches. You’ve read a lot of books. You’ve seen countless great concerts. You’ve travelled all over. You enjoyed life when you were young.

What the **** do people want with these old as **** years?

People who work hard as **** their whole lives and then think they’re going to enjoy it at 65...what a bunch of suckers. I’m glad I got mine when the gettin was good.

OK so one of my old friends is now stage 4 and the doctors are like maybe 10 years but you’re a lifer. Chemo for life. How the **** could that possibly be worth it? Even when I see someone like 70 cashiering at the grocery store I think goddamn you must really want to ****ing live. But endless chemo? Then acting like cancer can hear you. Wear a t-shirt that says “**** cancer”. **** “cancer” doesn’t care. Cure my ****ing ass.

I think most people are so pissed they wasted their youth doing some pissant job they can’t accept the end. If you can look back and say you gave it a good run then what are you going to do? Do it again with less feeling like a Who reunion concert? No thank you.

Thanks for reading.

I flew across the US last month to help bring this dude back from the brink.

His wife, of over 50 years, posted this on Thanksgiving:






Be cool........

I bet deep inside he’s pissed you prolonged his agony.

Goddamn I’d be so pissed. Give an old man his peace.

I rarely post but , hey I will post on this. I personally want to live as long as I can. I enjoy my life. I have been living with / happily married to the true love of my life since I was 18 years old. I am happy. I am happy with my job. I don't plan to work till 65 but if I have to, so be it (because even if you are happy with your job, it still is a job..and not working is always much more fun to me).


Those people you see working at the cash register have different reasons for working there. Some for money. I know I have friends near retirement age who honestly don't know how they will afford to retire or how they will live on their pensions. My parents luckily have retired and will probably never have to worry about money. Are they enjoying retirement? No, to be honest, they are friggin bored. My father pretty much spends his time focused on his diving hobby but is already considering going back to work in some menial job just to work. My mother is considering the same. When you work your whole live and suddenly retire...it can be pretty darned boring to some.

Who are you to judge others about what they choose to do with their lives? If they want to live a few more years, so be it. Focus on your own.

Those two sentences are more depressing than every dark thought I’ve ever had combined. Goddamn, that’s ****ing brutal.

I think there's a saying that youth is wasted on the young.

I spent fifteen years working at the cash register and, yes, it was basically to survive. I ended up giving up when I wasn't getting the payoff for sacrificing my life (something I may have preferred to do, a wife and family- women loved me but not enough to date me, more of a platonic thing basically). I took two cross country trips before I totally hit rock bottom and now my health's gone to pot. Death is something I'm actually looking forward to, especially since I'm seeing a bleaker future for the ones that have to live their entire lives yet.
