Mercy and Quality of Life vs Quantity of Life

Hi, bradmn, Brad, thank you for your response. Several years ago, I began looking into sites and states that allow Death with Dignity. At that time, TX, was not one but there were six or seven listed. Books have been written on the subject but haven't bought any. Don't have a ready reference for you but appreciate that I am not alone in my thoughts and desire for choosing how and when to end my own life. Told my heart surgeon son-in-law that I was depending on him to help me move to a state where residence requirements (it varies by state; some 6 mos) could be met and choice of "when and how" would be mine to make without penalty to others. My thoughts and best wishes go to you and your wife as you have traveled the path of cancer for so long. Hoping that her recovery from the stem cell transplant will be successful and that you and she can share many more quality years together.

@fiesty76 One of the reasons that I campaigned to move to the state where I am is because of their right to die laws. I don't believe that somebody should tell me that I have to hang on longer than I want to, if i am suffering with a disorder that will rob me of my dignity and desire to continue. Quality of life is a very different definition for each person. Try to live each day to the best that you can.
