Average Life Expectancy

Average life expectancy is rising across the globe except for in the U.S. 
If you are living like the average American then you have to expect to be sick like the average American population. 
Also, these numbers are deceiving. For the United States the life expectancy is around 80 years old, a little less for men and a little more for women. However, most people are not actually living until they are 80 years old, they are just surviving. 
Many people start developing chronic conditions in their 40's and 50's and are not living life to the fullest extent because they are dealing with their health problems. In my opinion, many people in the United States are only living until they are 50 but are surviving until they are 80. 
Are you living or surviving?
