When I Stop Living

By arlene
Posted on

I had the conversation with my family members.

I've had a glorious run, most of it pain-free, I would appreciate a pain-free and good finish.
My older son, his wife and I had the conversation.
I am an active, involved, and “starter of projects” in my community.
When the time comes that my health prohibits me from continuing to
enjoy the things I do, the friendships I cherish, the fun I have and I am on a continual round of doctors, medications, pain, please be kind and let me go. You’ve had me for 80 years and I deserve peace.
I chose a trusted friend to make my health care decisions. Not because I don’t trust you, but because I wish to remove that burden from you. I think we all will know when my time is no longer a life but,
a simple marking of time.
I’ve had a glorious run, most of it pain-free, I would appreciate a pain-free and good finish.
