After the last two day food and booze bender, I'm surprised I woke up this morning.

 

I think quality of life is more important than a number. Probably better off checking out once you're sedentary in front of a TV all day and don't have all your marbles.

I'd like to say 90+ but it seems like people in my family check out around 85. I did have a great grandma who lived to be 104 so you never know.

The non smokers in my family live a long time, a few into the 100s and most of the others well into their 90s. That's living on a Lithuanian diet where everything has bacon grease as an ingredient.

We'll see, put 70s-80, but with my stress level at work, who knows. I did do a home EKG thing and all looked good, so have that going for me.

My mother turned 88 this month and is pissed that she survived a serious illness in the spring, especially since she knows that she lost a couple of marbles.

An at-home EKG?
Sounds legit ;)

I hear you. My grandmother reluctantly lived until 97. Buried 2 husbands and 2 children. It was not fun for her or anyone else around her.

Does anyone "anticipate" death?  Unless someone has a terminal illness, I don't know.  If the question was "how long do you think you'll live?" I might say 81-90.  Both of my grandmothers lived into their mid-90s.  My mom is 86 and my dad is 91.  My dad still bowls, golfs and drives.  We appear to have good genetics.  We have no cancer history in our family except for an uncle who smoked 4 packs a day which resulted in lung cancer.  There was an aunt on my mom's side who had a stroke later in life.  My mom has smoked all her life and still smokes.  My dad also smoked his whole life but quit about 12 years ago.  I have never smoked but I may drink more than my dad does and my diet may or may not be as good as his.  Lots of variables.

I’d genuinely be shocked if I died earlier than 85. I guess that’s why I consider it anticipation.

It’s all because I drink a lot of water and always have. I expect that to keep me alive for a long time.

No smoking, occasional drinking and no street drugs. I also express myself very well. No bottled up emotions...

Also, take a look at DD's signature.  There are probably a thousand different ways to say that but it's a good idea.  "Letting things roll off your back", etc. is really important because you don't spend time getting snagged on the small stuff.  This is my dad... simple, flexible, happy, blissfully relaxed, generally speaking.  Everyone has tense or anxious moments and that can't be helped.  But others seem to look for things to wring their hands over time and time again even when it seems like a small thing.  That will kill you early.  :P

Agree with you, Pemb. All that said, I always had a concern that my ex would die in his 50s. Lifestyle, but a majority of it was that he keeps everything bottled up. Stress will absolutely kill you.

I hope I’m wrong. I would not like to see my children lose their dad in the next 12 years. Too soon, for sure. Maybe things are better for him now.

The trick there is... try your best not to let there be anything to be bottled up.  I agree about bottling it up... probably not healthy.  My point is to do your best not to let things bother you and thus... nothing to bottle up.  That may be easier said than done and it might be out of one's control.  My wife gets snagged on everything and it consumes her.  I simply don't sweat the small stuff.  She may look at me as lazy or uncaring but that's not accurate.  I'm not lazy or uncaring, I just assess things and determine what's important and what needs to be addressed and what is not important.  She always seems to have a hurricane of uncertainty around her but that's how she's wired.

Growing up, I told a lot of people I wouldn't live past 18. When I was 18, i coded twice, was brain dead for over a day, and in a coma for several days. I dont play that guessing game anymore.

Based on some of your responses, Some might say your brain is still dead :P
