      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

self help for dying people

Recommended Posts

I need help dealing with my own end. I have a terminal disease and choose not to receive further treatment. I am running into strong opposition to this plan. I simply want the pain and suffering to end. Is this so wrong?

Digger,

The choice not to receive further treatment is yours, as long as you are a consenting adult. The opposition is simply a way of people telling you they love you. Have you considered taking part in a Hospice Care program in your area? Not only will they be able to help you manage the pain and suffering, but they can provide counseling services for the entire family and yourself.

Here is an article I got from the National Cancer Institute: Hospice Care

I wish you well. You are more than welcome to come here to talk about this with us,

ModKonnie
