Traveling alone, ever worry about getting sick?

Worrying about anything is not worth the effort. Rarely is it fruitful.

On 9-18-2014 I posted a similar thread "Serious illness in a van" in Discussions that don't fit in other areas.

I've been asked by friends "What happens if you have a heart attack out in the desert?" I answer, "I die".

When it's your time to go, it's your time. Period. You can't quit living life because you are afraid. Everyone dies eventually.

66788 is spot on, today was my appt day with my VA shrink. Besides all the psychobabble and discussion of the mind altering drugs I take was the question about what I feel about dying. Best answer I could give her was I am ambivalent about dying. I've come close several times so it's not a new thing and it's not something I worry about. I stopped on the way home and paid a bill and decided to take the back streets and avoid the mess on the highway. At the first red light I came to a young girl, about 17, ran a red light and got t-boned. Her passenger died, also about 17. I am sure dying was the last thing on her mind but her time was up. I am not making light of it in any way but dying, is in fact a part of life.

Death happens. The only things that are as close to immortal as they can get on this planet have no awareness and don't care. There are things leading up to death that can be unpleasant. But you aren't going to be any more upset about being dead than you were about not having been born, yet.

Never hurts to do a self health assessment. Better if you have a good physical exam to have help. Next I would look at my family history health wise. Basically heart disease, diabetic, cancer. Then make lifestyle choices if you like to decrease risk. A doctor I worked with that ran ever day ate right and got regular physical died the same day he got a good report from physical. Things happen that you can not predict or avoid.

Getting sick is a major reason I don't get out much, and for not doing much traveling.
Over the last 18 months my health has improved to the point I thought I could do some.
But I was out last night for a couple of hours, and have been non-functional all day.
I had to increase my meds and cancel an appointment for today.
I don't know how long this exacerbation will last.
Being out alone and unable to do anything for days is scary to even think about.

Morning Ella!

I've been sick *all* my life, and one thing I've learned is that I can be sick or well almost anywhere.

If you're stuck at home 'doing nothing,' why would it matter if you're somewhere else? Perhaps somewhere you would like to be like overlooking the beach or a mountain vista.

I'm not sure what you do when you're 'doing nothing,' but whether you're watching TV, catching a kip, or reading a good book, you can do ALL of those things snuggled up in your van, trailer, or RV.

Don't let sickness limit you more than you need to. Remember, 'Living well is the BEST revenge.'

May God bless you!

Love,

Jesse.
