You obviously have never seen the debilitating pain caused by some diseases. It is horrible and non-relenting. The best you can hope for is a day with less pain. Dr. Kevorkian was in tune to his patients and light-years ahead of politicians and clergy.
My comment was an attempt at sarcasm.
Yes, I have seen the debilitating pain caused by disease. You see, my sister has stage 3 congestive heart failure. So I watch her suffer. She's still young. And one of my best friends has multiple sclerosis. Another one of my good friends has muscular dystrophy and he already should be dead but isn't, thank goodness.
I have FELT debilitating pain. I was in a freak accident that was so severe most do not survive it and sustained a severe concussion and head injury, losing most of the hearing in my left ear. I continue to have complications from the head injury, most notably my short term memory and dizziness.
I do know pain and I watch my friends and my sister suffer. What kills me is that there is nothing I can do about it but support and love them as much as I can while they are still here, and to know I'm fortunate to be alive.
I did not mean what I said as an offense to anyone - I was just throwing in some sarcasm and I apologize if I offended anyone for what I said.
I knew you were being sarcastic, Az. F18 just needs to get to know you better.
