*** ** MAJOR amendment to this thread!!! VERY IMPORTANT! Scroll down to my last post. It will save you A LOT of trouble! Seriously!!!! *******
I’ve figured it out! I feel like celebrating! I’m so happy and relieved!
In my heart of hearts, I believe people should be allowed the dignity and respect of deciding how long they live. To me, what drives a person to end their life is the devestating part; that profound suffering and internal unending pain. But not the actual suicide; that’s freedom.
For example, I recently had to have my 15 year old poodle euthanized. She had a million and one health issues and got to the point where she could barely walk across the room, so crippled from arthritis. No pain med helped her. The moment she was released from that suffering, she was at peace. I could feel it.
Being mostly an existentialist, I don’t believe in heaven or hell, or that we exist as “spirits” for all enternity, to be reunited with our loved ones, when we die. That’s just a bunch of hype designed to instill false hope in the living. But it works for the majority so that’s great for them.
I’ve figured out a peaceful way to die. After years of trying various methods, compromising the health of my body, undergoing the physical and mental torture of trying to overcome this disease, I finally figured it out. It’s so simple. And it will be me immediately falling asleep, within seconds, and dying in that state of deep sleep.
Funny enough, it’s put me in a terrific mood! I feel light and hopeful and free, just knowing I have this painless, sure-fired way out. Happy enough that I just wanted to share it with some like-minded folks. 🙂
