Just wanting some peace

This is why suicide is all that feels rational to me as it's the one escape from the hellish and hopeless fate of being tormented by old age, something that I'd wish to avoid no matter what. I find it terrifying how humans can potentially exist for so long in existences so incredibly futile where they suffer so unnecessarily just to decay and deteriorate as time goes on.

The immense suffering that extremely old humans so tragically endure truly is so horrific and disturbing, I'd always see the peace of eternal non-existence where all is finally erased and forgotten about as being preferable to such senseless agony. The fact that there is no limit as to how much one can be tormented as long as they are enslaved in this existence that was so incredibly undesirable in the first place truly is horrifying with most humans if they exist for long enough just ending up with dementia or some extremely painful disease causing them to suffer so immensley in an existence where they are just waiting around to die anyway.

Existence truly is just a process of slowly dying and I'd rather die earlier to avoid meaningless suffering and extreme agony that serves no function but to torment one until they are finally free from this existence that was so cruelly imposed in the first place. I find it terrifying how the human body can deteriorate and decay so unbearably to the point that one is basically dead yet they still breathe and they still suffer just desperate for the peace that only death can bring.

To exist really is the most hellish and harmful imposition that only death can bring me relief from, it'll always be so dreadful to exist and it's just so nightmarish how this could potentially continue for decades with only the promise of much worse suffering lying ahead. It's truly so abhorrent and the most terrible tragedy how humans are denied access to painless ways to escape from the futile and torturous burden of existing. Those who want others to die slowly and painfully from old age with no painless way to escape from the agony truly disturb me, I'd never wish to be tormented by old age and the fact that this wish isn't accepted just shows how hellish this reality truly is.

Here's what plagues me about this. I firmly believe that when we die our consciousness transitions to a new life. Could be any conscious being anywhere in the universe. And based on our previous experience with not being alive there will be no interim peace. So as we lose consciousness on the way to death I think we enter a dream state that segways directly to rebirth. And the most likely candidate would be whatever is the most plentiful and prolific sentient life form in the universe. And this cycle will go on forever. Some of these lives will be ok, many will not.

I feel like killing yourself to escape old age is, in and of itself, a good reason.
I think Hunter S. Thompson's suicide note was the best one I've ever read.
No More Games. No More Bombs. No More Walking. No More Fun. No More Swimming. 67. That is 17 years past 50. 17 more than I needed or wanted. Boring. I am always bitchy. No Fun—for anybody. 67. You are getting Greedy. Act your age. Relax — This won't hurt.

You are very unselfish for not wanting to grow old. Hundreds of millions of people all over the world are burdened with the obligation of having to take of the elderly parents that sefishly chose to give birth to them. And they're guilted into thinking it's a debt that has to repaid.

being old is probably not that bad if you're healthy and you reproduced, people do too much unhealthy things when not old and all that compounds later and they get all kinds of sickness, get disabled, etc.

Interesting. No one knows, but I have seen pretty many ndes (near death experiences) where people say we go to another place where we feel a lot better, and we have a life review and we stay there for a while and we eventually pick out a new life to reincarnate into. But why would I have a chosen a life this time with so much pain in it, people say it's for the learning, but I haven't learned enough to be worth all of this pain is how it seems, though maybe it will seem different later, who knows.

Not every old person suffers a miserable death, my grandpa died sitting on the couch and my grandma died sitting at the kitchen table, they were both active and in good health just prior to their deaths.

ive heard that switzerland offers a private euthanasia service for ppl over 60. its expensive, but u might as well just save for that instead of retirement, itd be way way cheaper than a nursing home. if life ever becomes enjoyable enough for me to even reach old age, i'd still def opt for the swiss method. i dont want to get dementia n then be denied euthanasia (legal in my state) bc im not of sound mind(!)

Not all elderly people suffer. It's abhorent to paint any group of people with the same broad brush.

Seeing and feeling your own body decay as you get older sounds pretty horrible to me. So many medical conditions run in my family that come on as they get older, I can't imagine an old death would be peaceful for me.

No matter how good life gets, as I get towards elderly age I'll probably just ctb anyways.

For most, being elderly is easier than coping with the problems that bring people here.
