If I'm bed-ridden in my 80s then what's the point?


I agree. Once I'm no longer able to live independently, I'm going with euthanasia. No "congregate care facility" for me.

My FIL has been sick for three years. House/wheel chair bound. Now, for the past three months bed ridden. He continues to demand that his wife take care of him personally. Feed him, change his depens, ets. I have been heard to mutter what a pity it would be if he "accidentally" suffocated in his own pillow.

If it were me, I would ask the Countess to help me do that. Or move to Oregon.
