I laughed so hard. It ticks me off when I FINALLY sit down after 8 hours and a family member walks by and says "since you aren't busy, can you get so-and-so a glass of water?" as they walk by the machine themselves.
ditto Joy Tomkins: "I do not want to be half dead, I want to be fully dead. I’m afraid the medical profession will, with the best of intentions, keep me alive when I don’t want to be alive. I don’t want to lie for hours, months or even years before dying. I do not want to end up as a vegetable. I don’t want my family to remember me as a lump. That is why I got the tattoo. I don’t have a death wish I just don’t want to be kept alive in pain.”
