    about my kidney disease. And you have the balls to say that I'm making it all up? Oh how I could wish I could HR you for such a dickish comment. But I expect that from Authoritians- Attack the commenter,

    Afraid that your authoritian side will show?

    •  You're confusing the heck out of me. (3+ / 0-)

      First you talk about your case and I ask a question. Then you say it isn't true but if it was true what business would it be of mine. Now you're saying it's true again and start calling me names.

      I have no idea who you are and have never read any posts from you other then these. So, I hope the best for you regardless.

      If you have something to say about end of life care, maybe you should write a diary on it. I'd be happy to comment there.

        and I stated it did not matter. So back to the question..

        If I am told I will not get a transplant, I may very well choose to end life. Either by stopping dialysis, gun or some other manner. What business is it of your how I do it? Or are you only concerned if I use a gun?

          As I understand you now, you are not facing that question. But you might given your current condition. Got it.

          I hope you don't face that question, and I hope you consult with health care professionals when going through the process if you do. My opinion is that end of life care and decisions need to be addressed in the United States to shift from lengthening life at any cost (in dollars or quality) to focus on quality and the sound wishes of the patient.

          So everyone, not just you, should make their wishes known through an Advance Health Care Directive while they are legally able.

          None of this has anything to do with the topic at hand, and my advice is the same as I posted above... if this is a topic that moves you then write a diary and start a discussion on it. This thread is about returning to a rational basis for dealing with gun violence since the flawed Heller decision.

          We were not ahead of our time, we led the way to our time.
