I do not want to grow old, get dementia and wallow in my own shit and pee. That is why, I wish I have the right to die in the way I want before I wallow in my own shit and pee. And, I would like to do it in the way Honorable Socrates did some 2,400 years ago.

 

I would like to die like Socrates. I shall invite a few friends and relatives to my death party. We shall sing and drink (soft drinks). I shall sip hemlock or some thing better which tastes sweet and nice. Entertain the family, friends and relatives and then lie down and die. I wanted to die at the age of seventy. Unfortunately, now I am seventy three. I go to the gym and worked out 90 minutes a day, two days a week. I never felt healthier before. That is pretty stupid.

 

In 1977, I almost die from malaria at the Death Valley of Burma-India border. Again, in 1990, I got serious malaria at Thai-Burma border. These malaria infections left behind a weak liver and heart in me. These are my trophies from my jungle life as a Burmese rebel. Ultimately, I nearly died from a left heart failure when I was fifty six. I survived.

 

Perhaps, it was my willpower. I was not ready to die, then. I still had a job to raise my kids. Now, I am ready to die because I have done the job as a parent and am satisfied with my job. I do not want to grow old, get dementia and wallow in my own shit and pee. That is why, I wish I have the right to die in the way I want before I wallow in my own shit and pee. And, I would like to do it in the way Honorable Socrates did some 2,400 years ago.
