Hell no. I want to live to be 100. I want everybody I know and care about to live a long time. I want life NOT death. I'm Pro-Life. Anti-death.

I would much rather die than survive with lasting complications. Regarding myself, I’m much of the opinion that whatever happens happens, I haven’t been very attached to living for over a decade. But I’ve been fully vaccinated and boosted and have been taking precautions all along simply so I don’t get anyone else sick. I fully expect that if I was infected, I’d be a mostly/entirely asymptomatic carrier :roll: (and might be the only person who thinks that would actually be worse - in regard only to my own feelings about myself)

I'm not suicidal, but Long Covid has made me come closer to it than anything else in my life.
I think if I didn't have a child to take care of now, I might have seriously considered it.
But I like to think that I might get better, even if it takes a few more years.
I hope so, anyway.

Also, I believe in reincarnation, and I'm pretty sure this life is punishment for some terrible things I did in a past life(s). So I just have to accept that and serve out my sentence and try to make the best of it.

I wouldn't mind it. At least I wouldn't have to worry about aging anymore and becoming a vulnerable elderly and losing my skills I can do now due to much younger age. I will not worry about covid and never had because my body my choice. Give me the freedom to die from covid. My choice.

But yet I got vaccinated because I wanted this all to end and more that get vaccinated, the sooner things will be back to normal. But boy I wish I was given the freedom to use Covid as an excuse to end my life sooner.
I only got vaxed because Covid restrictions were supposed to lessen for the people who were but then places started enforcing the same restrictions for all regardless of individuals vaccination status. If the vaccines were really as effective as the US government & lots of individuals insisted they were in the begging, there would be no need to enforce restrictions for the people who got vaccinated.

I felt like total [email protected] the day after I got my 2nd vaccine. I was delirious & talking about blowing my face off with a shotgun. I don't remember it but my girlfriend did 8O I don't have any guns & I could barely get out of bed to use the bathroom so I was in no danger of actually killing myself. I haven't been suicidal or had suicidal idealization since my 20s with the day after my 2nd vaccine being the only exception. That said, my girlfriend is my main reason for living & if something were to happen to her that could very well push me over the edge.

The state of the world majorly sux right now between Covid & the potential of World War 3 starting any day & nuclear missiles likely being used. I really hope that all us hew-mon parasites kill ourselves before we can expand to other planets & f#ck them up the way we f#cked up our home one. As the Klingons say "Today is a good day to die" & I am prepared to die if everyone does.

the only reason i'm sticking around is that there is one vulnerable person who seems to love me [and another few who seem to get something out of chatting with me] and would miss me greatly, and i must honor them and do right by them and not just ditch them in leaving this life ahead of schedule. therefore i got my covid shots and will get the booster march 1 [when i am first allowed to get it] and stick to the covid protection protocols and live prudently, so as to maximize my time here with the people who grok me. it is the least i can do for them. :heart: :heart:
