    Default You want to die in dominican republic ?

    Hola all residents.

    I love the DR. I live here for about 9 years. My spouse and I are very happy and we live in Santiago.
    We bought a solar and ¨we¨ will build a nice villa with pool. We are fully integrated, speak spanish and have friends all over the social-cultural level. The sky is blue.
    But : when I ask myself if i want to die here in the Dominican Republic, ther answer is ¨no¨.

    So, what are your feelings about this question ?

    Sincerely, Hiram.

    I'm with Badpiece, but if that concerns you just rent so that when you're old enough to consider death you can just leave.

    I don't think you consider death so much as it considers you...haha.

    My feelings are that I don't even think about where I will die, just live in the present. Maybe I'll have a different perspective in 30-40 years.

    Seems like people would want to die at "home"; for some, for many reasons, "home" is the DR, while for others "home" will always be back where they came from.

    If you feel strongly about this, better leave now. Few have the opportunity to pick the time and place of their death.

    I tend to agree,
    with all that transpired last Father's Day, when I had a massive stroke (almost died), I certainly do not want to go through that again, TPA Clot buster that worked(65% do not work) and back on my feet in a few days, followed by major surgery (carotid endarterectomy ) and now I am almost back to normal.

    I will do all I can to pass death by.

    Why not die here?! When you are dead- you are dead. It dosent matter were your body is rotting, you are not around to enjoy it more anyway.

    I rather enjoy life while i can, and let those fanatical religous locos worry about if they are welcome into uncle jesus`s very empty heaven.

    In all honesty, I've considered the possibility that I might become seriously ill, or have a heart attack/stroke in DR, because we are there months at a time - and it scares me. Because we don't live in SD or Santiago near anything resembling a great hospital/clinic, it's a real possibility that if that happens to one of us, we will die there before reaching SD.

    However, like minerva_feliz, I like to live one day at a time, and not dwell on what 'could be'. I'm a bit of a fatalist too, so I figure I should just enjoy my life as it comes, because none of us know when our time is up.

    And let's face it, when it happens, who cares where it is???
