I have made my feelings known to my family

I had the conversation with my spouse.

Anyone who knows me, knows how I feel about the "end of my life." Do not put me on life support. PERIOD.
 Anyone who knows me, knows how I feel about the “end of my life.”    Do not put me on life support.  PERIOD.  My daughter and husband have known this FOREVER.

My Mother told me that she never wanted to live if she was incapacitated.  I told her I would OBEY her wishes.  I was out of the country when she died on the operating table and my brother said to “try to save her.”  She was saved and lived in agony for a few years — no life whatsoever.  Sad time in life.

My end of life rule is “If I cannot do what I do now, I do not want to live.” Period.  I have no religion or beliefs.
