I watched the docu. Thank you for the link, Emily. I am still thinking about it and will be for quite some time. For now, I feel humbled. I had no idea that any country had legalized euthanasia for mental illness. And it apparently only takes three appointments with a psychiatrist; if you live in a certain place that is.

I don't know. I'm not sure what to say about it right now.

Yes, prior to seeing it I had been a big euthanasia proponent but afterward I had some lingering doubts. Goes to show how you can think something is good in theory but in practice, have some real doubts.

Yes, I find it very complicated. I have doubts too. I feel differently about euthanasia for terminal illness versus mental illness.

OP...... how do you know youíll even make it to 50 ? Iíve felt the same way many others have said. You can age physically but mentally stay young. In a way that kinda sucks because you canít physically do what your mind wants to !
I found mentalization , ( staying in the moment) , helps get me through.
I donít want to think about certain past occurrences and I certainly canít foresee the future. (Possible trigger: I just want to say one thing about suicide . I didnít create myself so what gives me the right to end myself prior to natureís calling ?)
Sometimes you just have to plug along in life. Sometimes YOU have to make good things happen.
Wishing you the best, in the NOW !

I don't have a set age. I guess for me it's more about being in decent shape physically and mentally. Also, it would be terrible to be old and not have enough money to support myself.



Our landlord who lives next door is well into her 90s, senile, going blind and is pretty much deaf. She can barely get around. She's been declining for years but is still alive. Honestly, she should probably not be living alone. I wouldn't want to be that age if it meant living in that state for years. Same with an ex-friend's dad who is about the same age and bedridden with severe dementia.



Then, on the other hand you have this guy that was a goalkeeper for our national football team, Sergio Livingstone. After his playing career was over, he worked as a sports commentator. He died at 92, and was well enough physically and mentally to work up until a few weeks before his death. Living long in a situation like that, would be okay, I think. It doesn't seem like finances were a problem for him either.

Believe me, 50 is young. I've thought that I at least want to live into my mid eighties.

I personally don't think we should pick a perfect age to die because we won't know how healthy we'll be then and what our life circumstances will be then.
