Planning Your Own Death

Dear Brother Ron

Is it wrong to plan your own death? I plan to die at age 50-55, I am in my mid 20's now. I chose this age because given my genetic history, that's as long as my heart will last, and it leaves 30 years of relatively good health with which to enjoy life. I don't want to live longer, and will take my own life at 55 if it doesn't come naturally. Is this wrong?

Imhexed

Dear Imhexed

I am 65. My father died of his third heart attack at 69. He outlived two of his brothers. I can understand where you're coming from but your genetics don't always dictate your life. My most recent cardiogram came back good despite the fact that I have been smoking since I was 12.

Don't worry about thirty years from now. Live each day to the fullest. You may live to be 80. You may get hit by a truck tomorrow. Today is all you have. Make the most of it.

Best always
Brother Ron
