I don't want to become old and decrepit and have to rely fully on the help of others in order to function.
I would rather off myself.

I know what you mean about not wanting to be looked after
maybe one day they will give us that choice
but the way things are now
your doing something nasty
might hurt family or friends ?

if it were a legal option
then it could be discussed with family and friends
and not done in a horrible way

and you sound like you have plenty of life in you yet !

:hug5: :love:🕯

I've come to the point where I realize that might be me one day (and I'm only in my 30s). My fear is that I'll have no one or no means to pay for such help? :(

In some countries you can pay to be legally euthanized.
I will decide when I depart this world whether my family likes it or not. Especially if I get too old and am in pain.
