Death & Anger Updates

I just stupidly clicked on an ad that asked “Why so angry?” and ended up here. UGH, now I’m even angrier! Fuck you, happier.com! If I wanted a bowl of flowers, I’d go get one.

That’s the anger part.

Death has been a topic of debate, in the news and over here, regarding the right of parents to withhold medical treatment from their children. Jump in, if you have strong feelings about this.

Also, I am finally getting some feedback on something I wrote about euthanasia nearly three years ago. How come now? I don’t get it! But I’m still interested in it, and in hearing other opinions.

    I went back to that euthanasia post and realized that you wrote it like three years ago. WTF automated Sister Wolf emails? It was a good read, in any case.

    So glad I got to read your 3 year old piece! Brilliant. I can’t get my head around do gooding of the assisted suicide type thing – personally I’d rather hang around and annoy people with my disorderly bowels in such a condition. I keep thinking my parents are going to do this to me – I’m not looking forward to administering bed baths but I’d rather do that than kill them! however cigarettes and champagne are the preferred diet in case of horrid drawn out illness or dementia, we’ve all agreed on that even though no one smokes but it seems the right thing to do and also live off cakes.

    As for the praying bit without medical intervention – how can people be so stupid. Ok plastic surgery for those who haven’t suffer disfigurement or burns is essentially indulgent medical crap but life saving help for a young girl – geez these people need to go to hell.

    As the parent of a child with Type 1 diabetes I can’t even read that story, it’s so upsetting. It takes a long time to get to the point where high blood sugar will kill you, and this child must have suffered with the symptoms for months. Just heartbreaking.
    Also, the website you link to mentions that diabetes is “curable.” That’s inaccurate; Type 1 is manageable, but there’s no cure. People who have it are insulin-dependent for life, regardless of diet or exercise.

    I’m Type 1 diabetic and my ultimate death fantasy is Death By 3 Cakes, thou expert opinion is that 3 cakes are not enough to put one in hyper coma.
    Death is OK.
    Happiness, in the form purposed on happier.com, sucks! So tacky!
    (I’m not depressed, I assure you)
    Challenge and struggle make progress, too much happiness is numbing!

  5. Sister Wolf Says:

    Danielle – Aha, server going crazy. Thanks for explaining (and for reading)

    Make Do – Hahaha, yes, straight to hell!

    Iheartfashion – Shit. I’m sorry. I understand the parental Fear Mode – nothing is worse. xo

    dust – “Death is OK.” I love your take on this! Very refreshing.

    And then there was that bitch who neglected her son’s cancer treatment. Whether it was because she was mentally ill or because he had autism. I do meet parents both in real life and online who act as if autism was worse than death. Well fuck them and the horse they rode in on.

    In both cases;
    (not reading the link Sis as you know I avoid the Durm und Strang of some realities)

    but it defies belief that someone didn’t intervene and take the child into competent care. And get Mom into a mental institution.
