If I Get Alzheimer’s–Just Shoot Me!

Jacqueline Marcell Health Guide January 22, 2008
  • I have heard people say that if they are ever diagnosed with Alzheimer's, they want to take a pill (or worse) and exit quickly rather than endure living with that quality of life. I nod that I understand that fear, but that I actually think having a stroke and being paralyzed may be worse.  ...

    I sometimes imagine that I would not want to live if I have Alzheimer's. But it is harder than you think. When the time comes, you just cope with it. Unless you are very suicidal, most of the time, we just cope and live it. I am not brave enough to commit suicide.

    Well hope we can prevent Alzheimer's efficiently someday!

    Thanks Jacqueline - these points are so important.  Savor the present - whatever it is.  I guess one never wants to have regrets.  Loving and living for what is happening now is one way of accomplishing that.

     

    All the best, sue
