All my Paternal & some Maternal relatives lived to be well into their 80's/90's. Being a smoker who knows how long I'll get!

Re: Life Expentancy

Not knowing when your time is up... is the reason l donít spend too much time sleeping, than the six hours, l sleep at night.

I want to be awake to appreciate and savour every second of the time l have left, as at some point l will be permanently asleep!

Re: Life Expentancy

My mum died at 47 and she'd had cancer twice by then so I went through a stage of not really sure whether I'd even make it to 50 or not! Especially as my old dog died around the same time and I got really bad depression for a period.

Luckily I had another younger dog who got kinda of dragged me through the other side and before I knew it I'd made it to 50!

I think watching a TV program about elderly people who were really fit (over 70's doing body building and marathons etc) that kind of gave me hope especially realising at the same time I had nearly made it 50 without getting cancer. Since then I did loads more research and my physical ability has improved (and the depression) and I'm definitely feeling fitter and 'more able' now in my 50's than I was in 30's and 40's!!

so hoping 'the only way is up' (health improving-wise) as the song goes!

I don't know what the stats are, and they're always wrong anyway.

Well I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my grandad did, not screaming like his passengers

Re: Life Expentancy

As long as I make to 66 I'll be fine. Don't like the idea of being denied my state pension after I've paid in all these years.

I don't like to think about it.
It scares me.

Re: Life Expentancy

The shortcomings of Numerology have worked well thus far.

Re: Life Expentancy

I was sickly kid. Some thought I would die but I didn't. I got ill aged 40. Some thought I wouldn't make old bones but I have. I'm now mid seventies. I've got energy and expect to go a few more years yet.
