I have been reading about this so-called "care" pathway which seems to me to put into the hands of my trusted carers - consultants, GPs or even nurses - the arbitrary power to decide to kill me by means of starvation or even worse, thirst, without necessarily getting my permission, or that of my relatives.
It now turns out that government has been paying medical institutions millions of pounds to achieve high levels of deaths via this "care" option, which has been the preferred method in most hospitals for some years.
This appears to be state sponsored murder, in a horrific way, and those of us with lung problems which are likely to take us into terminal situations in hospitals, sedated with large doses of morphine to ease our way (for whose benefit - ours or the medical staff's) are prime candidates.
I have always had a dreadful fear of thirst, and I completely fail to understand the hypocrisy of politicians who deny me the civilised form of termination available in Switzerland whilst paying medical folks to starve or dehydrate me to death, assisted by a mood altering poison.
I must confess that this week, having finished my PR without noticeable benefits, I seem to have become obsessed with this Liverpool thing since I feel it's getting closer.
Am I alone in my paranoia?
