    Some people can only take so much before calling it quits and I would never tell anyone thats the wrong decision if they truly are sane and know what they are doing.

    My mom currently has a very bad blood infection which caused her Dialysis arm to literally explode so they might have to put a port in her neck so she can still do dialysis. She was at the point where she said enough is enough and I honestly could not tell her not to feel that way. She's been fighting death since the day I was born.

    If she died tomorrow I would be sad but also relieved she is free from this world who takes shits on some people lives and lets other live their dreams.

    The oddest thing is they put her in the intensive care unit in Erie, the exact same room in the ICU that I was in when I broke my neck. Pretty freaky considering they live no where near Erie but thats where the blood specialist happen to be.

    Goodluck Julie

    I always get a kick out of the "You have no balls" crowd.

    They could never see it as a logical, counseled decision. Must be the whole "fight or flight" that extends their arms so that they drag their knuckles. Chairs or no.
    And the truth shall set you free.

    Hellava first post. If you are refusing treatment for breast cancer it is a passive form of suicide, and I urge you to rethink this. Living with a spinal cord injury is far, far preferable to not living at all, and breast cancer is quite treatable these days. I think you need some counselling and I hope you reach out for it.

    I'm in my fourth decade of SCI life and happy to be here. I don't know where your at in life's journey that makes you consider death a desirable alternative, but give your decision some additional thought. Talk with your doctor to make sure your treatment options. Whatever you decide, you will be in my prayers.
