Hello all.... Smile

One of the topics up for discussion on today's show was .."What illness do you dread?"

My reaction was "What?"

What a peculiar subject!......the majority of the news is depressing enough without choosing a subject matter .......that hasn't even happened yet ......to depress further.....

Was wondering ...and that's why i joined..... if anybody on here found it an interesting subject?


I'm not always a negative poster .....honest.... Smile

Hello Becky Smile

I didn't listen to that part of JV yesterday but I can imagine it was pretty depressing listening.

I listened to JV yesterday- it was an interesting but unusual subject. Not sure that I fear any illness, if I contracted a bad one that would lead to a long lingering pain filled death - I'd choose my moment to pull the plug.

Life is the illness we all suffer from every day.

I have been blessed with good health thus far in my life, but, having witnessed the pain, suffering and frustration endured by a couple of close family members, who eventually died, fairly recently, I cannot help but be a little fearful of anything serious that might befall me in the future.

There is little point in worrying about it, though; just hope that I shall be able to carry it with dignity and know when it's right to "let go" / pull that plug.

I thought it was a depressing subject and not entirely sure of the point of it. Was there lack of material in the news to use for the show?

Hi Becky Very Happy

Really good to see you again and Welcome.

I found it a very bizarre subject and wondered why an earth they did it too. Very depressing when one grandparent has died of MND and another Dementia . Mother of Caner.

Do we need to be reminded?

I turned it down half way through as I was feel lousy at the time with a flu type bug and it was enough to make you think.......did I have the plague?!!

Hello Becky! Razz

I agree, very depressing subject and for what purpose?

Like Ron, I appear to have enjoyed good health generally although I did have Asthma as a scrawny kid.. didn't bother me much really and luckily, I hated football and long distance running anyhow!

It came back with a vengeance when my dad died back in '79 and landed me in hospital. I really couldn't breathe and I thought I'd had it..
With the new drugs available today it doesn't seem to bother me much but that would be it for me - not being able to breathe very well when I'm older.. it's terrible.

But, as I tremble at the thought of going to the dentist for a check up, I reckon any illness would worry me. Confused
