"How to die in oregon" is a documentary that will be airing tonight on hbo at 8 pm. It follows the lives and the struggles of quality of life over quantity of life. It is definitely something to see. Best documentary at Sundance Film Festival. Tell your friends and families unfortunately this is something we will all face. Thank-you

Hi tanker sgv,

Luckily I am feeling fine and live in sydney so I may skip this doco. We will all face death but my planned exit strategy is to be gobbled up by a great white shark while diving off some exotic tropical island or to have a heart attack while making love or to achive the deep diving record of all time . So I'll cross this bridge one day, but at the moment my head is in sand.

That said I am sure it will be a great doco to watch and I'm sure it will be up on the net to download sometime soon. If some finds a link post in this thread and I'll watch it when I am in a more sombre mood.

hugs,
Pete

My intentions weren't to say watch this sad documentry. I just know what happens when wishes aren't talked about as a good way to honor someone and preparations aren't inline. And I also know what happens when wishes are talked about but legalitys get in the way and put the burdens on family. My dad didn't talk about it and outta nowhere he had a sezier and passed away two weeks later from a malignant brain tumor. He was 37. My mom did talk about it and I had to fight tooth and nail to let the hospital let me bring her home to pass. Hospice was helpful as far as the laws allowed. She was 47. So now I sit here in my 20's knowing both sides of the spectrum. I have seen the last breaths of to many and never enough first breaths. I am not sad about that because I have learned that honoring someone coming into this world, someone living in this world, and someone leaving this world is all the same. It all boils down to protecting someone you love. Best wishes and I hope you don't have to worry about this for a looooong time.
