I am in my 60's, happily married, no kids. I have minimal family contact, though I have made frequent efforts to stay in touch, every way I can afford, telephone internet mail and occasional visits ---do you think anybody has come to see us over many many years??? No.(Interestingly, BTW, most of the family are repubs and I'm a dem-- is that why they have chosen to hardly contact me at all, though I have tried to stay in touch with them?) I would definitely prefer to lie here at home even on the floor, as opposed to going for medical help. My state is notorious for elder institutional abuse and replete with lawyers who like to make money- that-old-people-don't-have, going after such sbuse. If I want to, I should be allowed to choose to decline medical care. I already have a living will in place. Most likely she knew she was in bad shape, loved her home and her hubby, and did not want to die with tubes and stuff attached to her in an unfamiliar ugly accomodation which costs would force her husband into the streets. I fully understand. She and her husband should be left alone, just the way they were while she was alive.

You're just angry because that was your mom in that story. Now your friends know the truth: You're just like your dad. That must hurt. Have a nice NorthurnLife, Paco.

I totally get what you are saying - next thing you know social services gets involved and their whole way of living is gone. It is sad. I think my Mom would do the same thing, if I didn't have a key to her house that is

You seem to have a scatological fixation. I bet I know what Freud would say about that. Ick! You sick!
