Agrippina wrote:I watched my sister slowly deteriorate due to breast cancer. She was diagnosed and for two years went through the hell of chemo, and other treatment, and eventually landed at hospice. She spent two weeks there, waiting to die, and didn't so they sent her home. She spent another week at home, not able to eat, battling to move about, couldn't bathe herself, and eventually two days before she died, hospice let her back in. Then she starved to death. I won't let that happen to me. I want dignity, which is why I wholly support assisted suicide. If I can't get it, I'll stockpile sleeping pills and do myself in when the moment is right.

My late girlfriend went through that but luckily we live in a country that allowed her to end her life.
