How To Live Your LIfe


Last night, my friend and I were sitting
in the living room and I said to her,
“I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just pull the plug.”

She got up, unplugged the TV, and threw out my wine.

She’s such a bitch…..

I don't know, Hope. I think it might be nice to be a broccoli...

Hope, I'm not sure I understand who said this. Were you quoting someone who comments on your blog or were you talking about a conversation you had with someone who posts here? I don't want to address something to the wrong person but I'm not sure who said it. :(

I'm a little sad whenever I hear people saying that they would never want to live a certain way when they don't really know what that state would be like. It's a tough issue because I believe that people should be able to decide when they will and won't receive treatment/care but I do wish that more people were willing to consider the idea that they may be able to enjoy life with the use of assistive devices.

Bint my Darling. It was a joke conveyed by a friend. It's a commentary on how silly American culture has become--dependent on TV and alcohol to get us through life.

I believe all people have the RIGHT to choose their own way with their own body and life.

I have had a tragedy recently (before Xmas,check archives) that continues still and this comment was mostly to cheer me up.

Thanks for letting me know of your confusion.
