i say kill me now, but with my luck bein a veggie really means your consciousness is on a highr plane, and its gettin freaky with some damn fine consciousness' nonstop
Great Poll cjgallen
i have to go with pulling the plug. Its easy to say that now, but if i was actually in that situation i dont know. Its hard to tell because we dont really ever know what kind of mental state a severly brain damaged person has. This is no easy subject to debate.
the question to consider is whats worse. To sit in a bed the rest of ones life in a veg like state. Or to die a slow and mentally painfull death?
fuck i thought he meant vegitarian
either way i voted kill me now
haha I thought the same thing at first, but then I remembered that all of america is obsessed with whats her fuck
I'd rather tell my spouse and no one else in the world.........not even my parents. This way there wont be any court proceedings or media coverage.
dammit! I thought by 'veggie' you meant vegetarian, not vegetative and I voted keep me alive. then I read the rest of the thread!
so -1 for "keep me alive" and +1 for "kill me" because I'd want them to pull the plug.
I don’t associate being vegetarian with DEATH. I understood lol
I'm only not a vegetarian because I'm close to the fussiest eater you'll ever meet and I would love to be able to stop eating meat only I would starve if I did.
lol i less than three meat as well
Kill me! I want to be dead by the time I'm old and no long contributing to society!
Give me about 4 years, if I'm still out, pull the plug.
id want the plug pulled
anyone ever see the seinfeld where krammer see's the movie with the coma patient and want the plug pulled
meat > everything
I hope I never get too old to enjoy my death.
Keep me alive unless the financial burden is too much or I'm brain dead.
Couple sotries which might shed some light on this.
My good Buddy, had a serious Quad accident before christmas. He was put in an induced coma because his brain was swelling form the head trauma. A week later the swelling had went down, the took him off the drugs. He didn't wake up. The doctors said if he didn't wake up within a week, he probably never would. After a week went by, the doctors said he wouldn't ever wake up. A statement like that hits you hard. But 2.5 weeks go by and get opens his eyes. He has made steady recovery ever since, and is almost back to his old self after 2 months of rehab.
Another interesting story, my mother works in the mental health field, one of her patients tried to commit suicide by hanging himself. He was found, and revived, except his brain had been without oxygen for over 5min, and he was brain dead. Since he was an organ donor, he was kept on life support so his useable organs could be harvested. Well on the ambulance trip down to a major hospital, he woke up, and was talking to the attendant.
Those 2 stories are enough for me.
Never say never.
I agree to an extent, but there is a difference between 2.5 weeks and 15 years.
And there's a difference between a partially liquified brain and an intact brain. Comas are different. We're talking "persistent vegetative state" here.
It's all in the preparation.
