      I agree. Not sure if petition is answer in this case though. This disease make us contemplate desperate measures. At low points I confess my mind has considered more radical forms of protest

        Presumably you would have seen a mental health worker when you were in hospital, given that you had attempted suicide, hopefully something positive will come out of it.

        Thanks to the person who found you too. xx

          In my professional life, I used to be that mental health worker. Strange what life does - I now completely understand both sides of the argument.
          It’s good to know you’re still with us Matthew, but I really do “get it”.

            These few posts highlight the dilemma successive governments have and will face on the subject of legalising suicide.

              Hi Matthew, really hope you can get some support as you must have been so desperate.It’s so tough for you not being able to speak.Hope you have a communication aid to share your feelings with a mental health professional too.
              Best wishes

                Oh mental services offered visits and drugs. What real help is there? 🤔

                • I am incapable of killing myself but an OT suggested a way using my bed control.

                  Matt had the opportunity but just didn't put enough drugs down. Simplez.

                  Why do we live at all??

                  Why do I want to see tomorrow??

                  Oh yeah, Manchester gonna win premiership, I love my carers, gonna make more progress on the app, gonna watch footie this summer, they might sort out a cure for MND, .................................................. ............................. life just bounces so don't you get worried at all

                      Hi Matthew, what help do you think would be beneficial to you?You say you have been offered support from mental health services and “drugs”.
                      I know from your posts it’s not the first time you have mentioned ending your life.
                      Hope you get the appropriate support needed soon.
                      Best wishes

                        To be totally honest Mary I have faced things in my life when counseling and drugs were given and neither helped in the long run. I feel like I am in the end part now so I will wait to die naturally. That way I won't offend anyone will I? 😉

                          I don't think anyone was offended just worried sick that you would be alone.

                          if it was legal this wouldn't have to happen it could be done in a more civilised way.

                          I know it's a difficult subject, and there are arguments for and against, but we should be able to come to some kind of arrangement. 🤷‍♀️

                            It makes me so angry that I have been able to do it for dogs and cats. 😠

                              I know Matthew I totally agree. I don't see why anyone has to get on a plane and go to Switzerland. They should be able to do it when and where they decide. It's not like it's a thing that's decided on a whim.

                              if I kept an animal and it was suffering I could be prosecuted and yet I am allowed to watch someone suffer and do what? It's madness.
