They Seem to Live Forever These Days
by Generation Y
My grandmother is 87 years old and has been seriously on the wane for years now. Her husband (my beloved granddad) died ten years ago.
My grandmother was an abusive tyrant to her husband and children and was always waited on like some prima donna.
She's had dementia for years and was recently put into an Alzheimer's facility from her already expensive assisted living place. Her youngest daughter (who acts like a martyr) is her guardian and won't gift any of her mom's millions to her hard-up relatives who really need the money.
Yes, from my perspective, this generation of baby boomer parents has certainly outlived their quality of life. I think it also disgusting that the medical industry will not allow anyone to die nowadays, and will keep alive the decayed vegetables who should have died, so long as they have plenty of money to throw at the doctors.
My former step-grandparent is 98 years old and recently had a pacemaker installed! Ye gads, let these people go! Nobody can live forever, yet the doctors keep trying! I hope I don't end up this way in 50 years.
