Well, no matter what the law says, if I decide that the time is right, I'M GOING!! NO WAY am I sticking around to suffer the indignities of Alzheimer's, stroke, whatever.  Even if I have to take that long, scary jump that I so fear/desire. rip  :cussing:  rip

I think that it can only go so far. Let me explain when I was three I took four Ib profen pms out of the "child proof" bottle that was up in the top kitchen cupboard and slept for a few days and pucked most of the time I was awake and yes no nobody thought to take me to the hospital at least that I can remember. Every body just thought I was sick. Then in sixth grade I waited for a train to come and get me luckily my friend decided to come and find me during recess, then in eighth grade I decided to take an entire  bottle of ib pms... I just  needed some one to talk to.

We're not talking about suicide, specifically but- EUTHANASIA. Death with dignity.

I agree, Burzum, but don't you think that there is a difference between taking one's life because of despair, craziness, etc., and realizing that the quality of life has deteriorated to such a point that a person may as well be dead, even if that person is yourself?  My husband and I had a conversation about this just last night; we agreed that the one would help the other, should one of us pass a certain point, but what about someone who is alone? I would consider a suicide under those conditions a "death with dignity." What about you? rip  :color:  rip

Yes, yes- I appologize. I wasn't paying the strictest attention- I realize now what was really being said.  :doh:  :banghead:

Like when people are forced to remain alive while they spew out their own bile.  Or the pain is so bad their minds go into another time warp.  Or they're hooked up to a respirator in order to breathe..... and a catherer in order to unrinate.....or the cancer creeps through their body anihilating each and every organ cell by cell.  I definately believe in

  "DEATH WITH DIGNITY!!!"  

Love,
 darky
P.S.  That's ok Burzum.  I'm sure we all have misinterpreted semething @ one time or another.   Forgive me, I was venting above. :alarm:

Yeah, gawd forbid we should rob the drug companies or the HMOs ! Did you know those creeps charged TEN DOLLARS for a pill that it cost them 10 cents to make?  (This was during my chemo) And of course they're in bed with the political-religious complex. :cussing:  :shake:  :bash:

Well I know that everything is charged way out the a$$ at hospitals. The bill for my mother's life support alone was over 16,000. and that was just for a few hours. She was brain dead at the scene of her accident, but they kept telling us that they were waiting for some sort of test to come back to show brain wave activity..
We all knew that she was gone. There was no way I would have kept her on that awful machine another second if I had the only say there.
The entire bill was over 65,000. and she wasn't even in the hospital for 24 hours. THere were 3 surgeons listed on the bill, countless amounts of morphine and fluids, the ole helicopter ride for 3 miles was a few thousand. It makes me sick. They think they can rob you blind because you could never put a "price" on someones life...but indeed they are!!!
The insurance almost flat refused to pay any portion of the bill because my mother had a TRACE of THC in her system..ugh.
Tried to say she had some sort of clause about accidental death and drug use.. DRUG USE?? For a trace of THC??
Good grief.

The corruption and ignorance that lies behind the actions of ‚Äúdeath with dignity‚Ä? and euthanasia adversaries seems endless. The right to die requests that are inspired by the hard reality of old age and painful illness, that will eventually lead to death anyways, should be championed. It‚Äôs shocking that there are actual factions that support the unbearable pain and suffering of others so vehemently.

Should I ever be in the situation where I need to make the choice, I would definitely choose to pass on then to live a life where actually living has become impossible.
