The right to die with dignity?

Do chronically ill patients has the right to legally end their own life? My heart and mind always split into two directions when this question is posed to me. 2 years ago I woke up screaming out of my sleep from unspeakable pain in my left knee and hip. I’d screamed with the slightest movements. Orthopedic doctors cancel my appointment before I could even see them, because there was nothing they could do surgically for my leg. Some doctors had the audacity to say that because I was unable to walk my pain wasn’t a high priority compared to someone who could walk. There was a point during that time where I just wanted Jesus to come and take me from my misery. My knee and hip made a weird popping sound and I feel better, but I still have pain from time to time. What do you do when doctors and physical therapist don’t want to work with you because you are non-ambulatory? What if there’s no cure ? To be honest I’ve had this pain throughout my life because of surgeries of the past. This last time was the worst, I didn’t think I was going to survive it. That pain seeped into my brain and change my Outlook on my life. A big part of me says that only God has the right to end life. The other part of me says I am a hypocritical jackass for judging somebody for not wanting to live through unspeakable agonizing pain.

New wheelchair

I want to be sure that this new wheelchair will be right for me. The last couple wheelchairs when I exactly a good fit. I need a wheelchair for how I drive and live. Everybody wants to push the q6 edge on me, but I know that’s not that wheelchair for me. I think Pride Mobility must give salespeople really good incentives to sell their chairs, because you don’t hear the other companies’ wheelchairs. I am currently looking into the wheelchair that quickie has out.

Sometimes I think my life would be easier if I had a penis

The things you have to go through when you’re a non-ambulatory quadriplegic. I needed to get this urine test for my doctor. I did not want to do the usual method of having a straight Cath done at the hospital, because evidently Hamot hospital doesn’t know the correct location to put the catheter. In the past my private area will be sensitive and sore for a couple of weeks. I had to call around to all of these different Laboratories and not an easy task. Try to explain to a lady why a 37 year old needs a cath beg for an infant.

My dessert alternative

Tonight I’m a cherry strawberry and spinach with some honey. Added some water with ice and Ninja blender. It kind of came out with the consistency of sorbet, it was delicious. I made a new discovery flavored protein powder, I might be the only person that didn’t know about this product. Tomorrow I am sending someone to the store for peanut butter protein powder to add to my homemade concoctions.

An act of kindness

Yesterday I went to the pharmacy to get some body wash and a prescription refilled and the lady in the next line paid for my stuff. The crazy part was that I had to borrow money just to get those two things and here I didn’t even need to. May God repay her act of kindness in her time of need.
