PADDLETON ON NETFLIX

JUST FINISHED WATCHING RAY ROMANO AND MARK DUPLASS IN THIS VERY MOVING AND NICELY ACTED MOVIE.  ITS ABOUT A GUY WITH STOMACH CANCER AND HIS DICISION TO TAKE THE "PILLS" TO END HIS LIFE.

VERY HEARTWRENCHING TO WATCH TOWARD THE END....I CRIED AND DID NOT KNOW WHY.....

THANK YOU MR. ROMANO FOR BRINGING SOMETHING THAT IS STILL IN THE CLOSET OUT INTO THE OPEN...

WE NEED PAINLESS, SIMPLE AND EFFECTIVE WAYS TO BRING THE FINAL PEACE.....IT ANGERED ME THAT THEY HAD TO SIT THERE AND EMPTY 100 PILLS INTO A GLASS.

WISHING ALL A PAINLESS AND PEACEFUL NITE

GEt a copy of Last Wish by Betty Rollin, describing her effects to help her mother, dying of stomach cancer, attain the death with dignity that she was begging for. Powerful read.

Hugs to you.

I will look for it. thanks HELEN
I believe that God has the final answer when we shall die.. I do believe in pain medicine when needed but to deliberately take pills to die is suicide or murder if someone is giving them to you..Have to remember that this is the short life and the next one is eternal... Taking care of our spiritual life is even more important than this physical journey we have here on earth. I know myself I was brought closer to God and have a much more closer intimate relationship with him..I know now I am stronger than I ever thought I could be yet I know where I was at my weakest...I feel more mature in my thinking about so many things on what is really important in life.. and I feel a closeness with God and others.. I truly have a way of comforting others that I didn't have before.. knowing what I really needed when I was going through it.. I feel I know God better for what he went through for me, suffering on the cross, the way he did for me and for us all..There is strength in dying that is passed on to your loved ones for when it will be their turn... There are many good things about dying and suffering even though we may not understand it or want to go through it .. in the end we all will. Have to be careful about euthanasia and if you believe in God you know he has the perfect plan and can lean into him and know you are covered with his blessing. God bless you all hugs and love and always prayers Sabina
good afternoon Sabina, this is the 2nd time you brought your belief in your God to "sweetly" tell me that my way of thinking is not the correct way---last time you did it in private and this time, you couldn't help yourself and brought it out into the open.
fine and dandy...but now that its out and about....always remember that your beliefs are your personal beliefs based on your inner faith/etc.

BUTT IT IS NOT FINE AND DANDY TO COMPLETELY DISREGARD ANOTHER PERSONS BELIEF SYSTEM.

I NOR ANYBODY ELSE SHOULD HAVE TO SUFFER JUST BECAUSE OF SOMEONE ELSE'S PERSONAL BELIEF SYSTEM.

I SURVIVED THIS CANCER CRAP NOT BECAUSE I BELIEVED IN A GOD..... NO--I SURVIVED BECAUSE OF MY STRONG INNER SOUL/SPIRIT AND THE MEDICAL HELP OF COUNTLESS DOCTORS, NURSES, AND OTHER MEDICAL PERSONNEL.

IN MY PRIVATE RESPONSE TO YOU EARLIER THIS YEAR, I TOLD YOU ABOUT MY JOURNEY WITH GOD AND I THOUGHT WE HAD THAT SETTLED.

I AM VERY HAPPY FOR THOSE ON HERE WHO SEND ME PRAYERS AND OTHER POSITIVE VIBES. I ACCEPT THEM AS A CARING GESTURE OF TOGETHERNESS.

BUT I AM IN NO MOOD IN MY "NEW" NORMAL TO PUT UP WITH OTHERS WHO JUST CANNOT KEEP THEIR BELIEFS TO THEMSELVES WHEN THEY KNOW THAT THE PERSON ON THE RECVEIVING END DOES NOT AGREE.

I DO NOT PREACH MY BELIEVES TO YOU OR OTHERS. EVEN IF I COULD, IT WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE BECAUSE MY BELIEF IN MY SPIRIT IS ONLY ABOUT MY INNER SPIRIT AND CAN NOT BE GIVEN TO OTHERS....



AGAIN, I AM HAPPY FOR YOUR FAITH IN YOUR GOD....JUST UNDERSTAND THAT EACH AND EVERY HUMAN BEING HAS THE RIGHT TO DECIDE FOR THEMSELVES HOW TO LIVE/END HIS/HER LIFE.

WE SHALL NOT HAVE TO REVISIT THIS AGAIN.

HAVE A WONNERFUL DAY SABINA.

I have to say I agree with you Richard that these are personal decisions based on the individuals beliefs. I think I f a person feels strongly enough the freedom to act provides dignity and a level of control. I don't know if I could ever be that strong but respect the right to choose. I used to think we lived in a free country but with politics that are happening right now it seems more people are expecting everyone else to live by a single set of standards, not their own. I'm afraid we are not going in the right direction.

life is soooo strange....here we are talking about euthanasia for humans and just yesterday, i had to call my inhome vet to come to my home and euthanise my oldest doxie-Doobie. it all went so peacefully and then i put him and my remaining doggie-Baby in the van and drove Doobie to the cremation company. will get his ashes back in like two weeks.

IT ANGERS ME THAT WE ARE VERY HUMANE IN THE WAY WE END LIFE FOR OUR PETS, HORSES, OTHER ANIMALS AND YET, WE JUST DONT SEEM TO WANNA GIVE HUMAN BEINGS THAT ARE SUFFERING A PEACEFUL, LOVING AND CARING WAY TO EXIT THIS LIFE.
I need to watch this!

a week after having completed my PSA and urine tests(5/22/18), i noticed blood in the toilet and completed the F.I.T--fecal immunochemical test.... I forgot to mail it in and drove to the VA and had them give me another one, did it and that afternoon i returned it...two days later i received a call to schedule a colonoscopy for June 04, 2018. results came back positive for a ployp that was excised and also a 4-5cm malignant growth on the dentate line of the anus--right smack in/around my spinchter muscle. T3N0M0...prognosis seems to be really good as it has not traveled nor gone into nodes. scheduled to start chemo/radiation with 5-FU and mitomyacin first 4 days and last 4 days using a PICC line.

AM NOT USING THE 5-FU....INSTEAD ITS CAPECITABINE 500MG
