I for one am 100% for it.
But my view is from a different prospective than most,
i am terminal, there is a slim chance things could change
but this would only buy me some time, 10 years or so..
possibly more, but in the end, there is no avoiding it...
I would like to think that when the pain and suffering gets to much
that i would have the right to escape it.
As it stands, it has been over 13 months since i have had a single day
without pain, and this is after my doses of morphine.
Life has totally changed for me, and not the better, but i still enjoy what
i can, but i know there is only one direction i am going to go, things will
get worse. According to my doc i have around 1 to 1 1/2 years left.
I am hoping to avoid what i have seen many suffer through with the same
medical conditions as i have. I would hope that when the time comes i will
have enough med's to escape the suffering once and for all.
I am not looking forward to it, nor is my family, but its a fact of life, we get
the cards we are dealt in this life and do with them what we can.
The fact that its not legal and practiced is a sad statement for our socitety.
We put our pet's to sleep when they are hurting to much, when we hunt
we try to make the shot that will kill the animal as fast and painless as possible
but when it comes to humans we suffer untold agony some times for years.
I think its time as a species we change our way of thinking, and allow the ones
that need and require a escape a means to do it.
Sadly, i know without a doubt it wont happen in my time.
