Life has become increasingly difficult. The only thing I can do for myself is smile. All four limbs are useless. My lung function is greatly reduced. All my food and water goes through a tube into my stomach. So long to the 5 o'clock vermouth!
We went to see the Richmond Hospice last week. It is very nice, and the staff were friendly and informative. I have decided if my disease doesn't take me before, I will stop feed and water in October and go into hospice.
I am not afraid of death. It makes me sad. I have so many people I don't want to say goodbye to. I had so many more adventures I had planned.
I will make sure to vote in the early polls (I am my mother's daughter).
