Death and dying, the though of it causes many emotions, and I can see from a recent post it has caused a great deal replies. I am not going to judge any of the responses as I believe we are entitled to personal opinions, and as humans we are not always going to agree with each other. I also feel that death and dying is not discussed enough amongst those who most need to know our wishes. In fact quite recently when discussing my own wishes should I be near death was accused of being morbid about even considering such a thing at my young age. Death regardless of our status, old or young, sick or healthy is a natural part of the life cycle.
I am not afraid of dying, having been forced at a very young age to discuss my death when my family didn't understand my illness. In recent years I have made my husband aware of what I wish to happen to my remains when I pass, and have told him how I feel about being kept alive when I consider my quality of life to be poor. The only thing I haven't done yet is make my wishes know officially, something I have considered, but not quite sure how to do it.,
And remember the process of dying and death is personal, what one might consider a poor quality of life, another might find acceptable. So what ever responses this post generates, please be respectful of one another, enough upset has happened recently on this community board.
Good night everyone, and have a good sleep Katina aka Daxiemad
