|From a story about a guy with Lou Gehrig's disease who's opted out of treatment and is preparing for his inevitable end:
If I let this run the whole course, with all the human, medical, technological and loving support I will start to need just months from now, it will leave me, in 5 or 8 or 12 or more years, a conscious but motionless, mute, withered, incontinent mummy of my former self. Maintained by feeding and waste tubes, breathing and suctioning machines.(via Kottke) #lifestyle
No, thank you. I hate being a drag. I don't think I'll stick around for the back half of Lou.
I don't worry about fatty foods anymore. I don't worry about having enough money to grow old. I'm not going to grow old.
I'm having a wonderful time.
