I am tired, this is punishment — World’s oldest woman cries out


The ‘world’s oldest woman’ claims to have never
lived a happy day in her life.
Koku Istambulova is
apparently 128 years old so that is a long time to
be miserable.

Her birth date of June 1, 1889, was apparently
confirmed by the Russian government on her
passport but it’s still hard to believe considering
the oldest person ever documented was 122.

Despite possibly being a record breaker Ms
Istambulova, who lives in a village in Chechnya, is
not too happy with her life.

‘I have not had a single happy day in my life,’ Ms
Istambulova said. ‘I have always worked hard,

digging in the garden. I am tired. ‘Long life is not
at all God’s gift for me – but a punishment.

‘Looking back at my unhappy life, I wish I had
died when I was young. ‘
And now I am not living, I
am just dragging through.’

Ms Istambulova has lost all her children, with her
last surviving daughter Tamara dying five years ago
at the age of 104.

The pensioner says she has no secret to living
long but admitted she loved fermented milk and
didn’t eat meat or soups, which may have helped.
She added: ‘

It was God’s will. ‘I did nothing to make it happen.

‘I see people going in for sports, eating something
special, keeping themselves fit, but I have no idea
how I lived until now.’
