I hope to make it to 82, when my house will finally be paid off!  After that, it'll be a fight against Alzheimer's ... it's in the family Smiley Sad   So, I have to make the most of the next 15 years, if I make it THAT long!!

I agree. I am 62, and I feel 25. Can't imagine checking out for many many years to come.

Long enough to see how my 5 grandchildren's lives turn out. They range from 13 down to 5 months. I am not leaving this world until I see how their stories turn out. I am 62 now..so atleast 100.

Good for you to have the desire to live to 100! Most of us have the "usual" (pains, various problems) if over 70, but we try to find the joy in everyday living. You are doing great. And 75 is the new 60. Haven't you heard?

Yes. You do want to be around to be involved in many things like this. Think about the good stuff that is still with you. Sometimes it takes a lot, but try to find a little bit of joy in every day. Try to get a laugh every day (or at least a smile).

I get what you are saying. But still, unless there are some awful things you are dealing with, you really would like to have a long life....right?

I'm afraid once the Republicans kill/cripple Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security much of the optimism on this thread will begin to turn.  Of course they will delay this for several years (see their healthcare "reform" bill that was defeated by a single vote) so their voters will "forget" that the Republicans are the responsible ones.  And they will get rid of all of them/cripple them, or try like hell to get rid of them - see Ryan's proposed budget.  What better way to have a loyal workforce than to force your workers to work or lose health benefits as they're aging and need health benefits?  My father and step mother have benefited enormously from the current system, at my, my wife's and my daughter's (continued) expense, but are full throated supporters of this attempt. Hippocrites indeed.
