I'm 62. My mom died 8 months ago and my dad died when I was 11. My mom was my best friend in the world. I was her caregiver for the last 3 years before she passed. Her death really destroyed me. I have no family left now. I have no spouse or children. Of course I have friends, but basically my death won't leave any truly devastated with grief the way my mom's passing did to me. I am a very religious person, but not of fan of any organized religion. I firmly believe in an afterlife where I will be, finally, reunited with my family. I am planning to get N. I won't use it unless I become disabled or get a terminal diagnosis though. However, I have some health problems so this will probably be sooner than later. I completed my advanced health directive forms because I don't want ANYTHING done to save my life. I spoke with my primary care doctor and he said, you don't even want anything done if you're in an accident?! I was like, hell NO . The good thing is he said, well it's your body and your life. He respected my wishes.I have to be honest and say I do get very sad when I read about some of you younger people wanting to die. I'm NOT JUDGING , but it does make me really sad. Anyway, thank you for reading this.
