Corinne Posted October 13, 2007 Report Share Posted October 13, 2007 Hi Everyone,I know it is a touchy subject but I need to discuss it. It was said in another post that people who take their own lives go to another place. (Please don't feel bad because I understand why you said it.) I cannot accept that because that would mean I would never see my beloved Jimmy again. Jimmy had terminal colon cancer and was in his last days per the hospice nurses. He was bedfast as he was so weak and had not eaten in 10 days. Christmas morning 1996 he asked me what day it was, I told him Christmas, he said not that what day of the week. I told him, he said OK and I told him I loved him and went to take a shower. While I was in the shower I heard a loud bang. I went running into the bedroom and there he was. He had shot himself with a gun we kept under the bed for protection. He was in so much pain and was a proud man and I don't think he could stand that I had to do everything for him. I do believe one day I will see him again. This brings me to another question, why is it that they allow animals to be euthanized to put them out of their suffering and pain, but do not give humans the right, when they are going to die anyway, to die with dignity? I never new what my opinion was on euthanization until I watched Jimmy go through what he went through and the fact that he had to shoot himself to end the pain quicker. I do believe that a person that wants to end his life before these horrible diseases take away what pride they have left should have to be checked by several Drs. so that there is no chance that there is something that can be done and that it is not just because they don't want to live anymore, but I do believe it should be allowed. I do not believe people should take their own lives because life is hard because I believe life is precious and sacred. Sorry everyone, I know it is a touchy subject but I needed to vent a little. I love you all!Hugs & prayers,Corinne Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
