It's even more important to make your living will...and make your lawyer richer...
I agree too.
Ive had to do that nore times then i wish to remember, held each one till the end.
Its tearing me up as i am writing this.
But relieving the pain........
Have a will. Everyone knows what to do
I was sobbing as I posted. Why? Because it's good to get the grief out.
A Living Will..? You are better then me, I don't have a living one.
Oh yeah, no watching me wilt away stuffed with tubes.
And if i know its coming, i will help myself.
Oh yeah...temporarily forgot about that....:(
About what? That part of your post?
That part of your pain... You explained it so well but it seemed like so long ago...
My pain is with me all the time. It wont kill me, not soon.
But, when the time comes that it puts me in a position where someone has to care for me and its intolerable, im out.
If you cant find anything enjoyable in life, if it has just gone beyond your grasp, there is no sense in being here.
As somebody who supports local animal rescue groups. I tend to disagree. When somebody cuts off a dog's ears and nose. Leaves it chained up in a back yard when it is 10 degrees out. When the dog is then kicked in the face because it was being "too loud" or just wanted to be pet? Nope. It will remain on the chain until the abuse kills it, or it will be rescued, and maybe never trust humans again. Humans put in the same position could probably figure out a way to commit suicide. Just Saying.
Oh man do you have to say that... I'm squinting so my eyes don't read what you wrote...
I don't even know what this post was about...or even if it is mine...ha.
Now I remember...it's about being put down...
''Tis ugly. But true. And unfortunately common.
I feel their pain. Which is why my money is going to the Ferret Foundation. Some pets just get ignored.
I can't afford much. But I put in what I can to "no kill" animal shelters. I've seen some bad stuff.
I''m thinking of volunteering. Do you think that is a bad idea or a good one? For me.
I think it is good for everybody to do. Though it will break your heart and make you want to kill people. Not kidding.
I'm not sure if I can handle that. I'm pretty fragile.
It took all of me when my pets passed away in October...
Yup. It's pretty rough. I just think everybody should remember the thoughts of a Dog: "I will love you. I will be your best friend. I will be the one most happy to see you every day, even when you have a bad day. I like being warm, I like being fed, I like being pet and hugged. Please don't hurt me........."
Most animals don't have to worry about work or bills.
If we weren't immortal, I might agree.
