For those of us who have read ‘Being Mortal’ it has been a good read if not a great read.
It is so easy to nod with what he has written. New medicines have not improved lives, they have PROLONGED lives. I seriously am ready to go TODAY. I am not willing to be admitted to a big hospital with revenue targets. It scares the hell out of me. Doctors I meet as friends tell me that it is mentally, physically, emotionally and financially abusive to be staying in a hospital for a long period of time. So, they tell me, when you are willing to go, go to a small friendly hospital which will tell you the truth. Do not go to a ventilator Subra, it does not help.
The more I see people who are bored (no not run out of money, health, or anything) – and have completely the willingness to live. Some of them have given up on eating, enjoying, processing information – meeting people, laughing…everything seems painful.
Is it not time that we let them go? let them decide…
I wish to die at home (not in a hospital). I am sure I may not have the guts or the mental power to do this..perhaps i may..or i may not…but this is how I wish to go…
