no stupid or biblical crap please... i have been thinking of this a lot over the last few days having spoken to another person in similar situation and looking at links if you have a chronic illness which causes you to live in pain 24/7 and the prognosis is not good or unknown, and you have had the condition for years would euthanasia be considered suicide? i have been thinking about this, adopting my kid out when born to someone who would be a far better parent than me, and going down the euthanasia route. ultimately yes it would involve killing myself but i would be doing it in a legal context i guess... possibly with a helper who assists in such things. i am pro life but i am also pro choice which is an difficult paradox. i believe suicide and euthanasia should be a last straw really, and i am currently awaiting a social services assessment for a carer. plus my midwife has pulled her finger out and got me an urgent physio referal and a pain clinic referal soon. BUT if these things go nowhere would it be wrong to off myself? my quality of life is zero. my house is a shit hole. i cant walk my dogs. i cant move half the time and morphine does not really help with the pain even tho i am on loads. i also worry about the baby with me being on opiates. would it be so bad if after trying to get services to help me i said fuck it all?
