3 : I Don't Want to Die

Thank you for sharing your story with us. I am here becasue my father 77year old, has been suffering from dementia for 8 years. Dementia came after surgery, probably wrong anesthesia. Lost memory, speech, doubly incontinent, bed ridden for 7 months. Now is finally on morphine by mouth every few hours. He has not had food or drink in two and half days, we had to give morphine since we saw distress in coughing and clenching hands. doctor decided to keep giving morphine next day. I wish we had stopped and see if there was any recurring pain before giving morphine again. What disturbs me and my mom is that his eyes are open staring toward the ceiling. I feel like we are killing him and want to stop morphine. It is the most horrible feeling in my life.

There may come a time when you feel you want to discontinue dialysis treatment. You may feel that dialysis is no longer maintaining or improving your quality of life. If this occurs, it is important to know that you have the right to make the decision to stop dialysis. However, before making this decision, it is important that you discuss it carefully with your loved ones and treatment team.

Yes, dialysis patients are allowed to make decisions about stopping dialysis treatment. You are encouraged to discuss your reasons for wanting to stop treatment with your doctor, other members of your health care team and your loved ones before making a final decision.

The members of your health care team will want to have a clear understanding of why you made this decision (worsening health, specific treatment problems, depression) to determine if any improvements might be made that could affect your decision. Your doctor, social worker and nurse may all speak to you and encourage you to talk openly about your feelings.

You might. If your health care team is concerned that you want to stop dialysis for solely emotional reasons or because you are suffering depression, you may be asked to speak with a psychiatrist, social worker or other counseling professional. Depression may be treated successfully with counseling, medicine or a combination of both. The team may also want you to speak with a mental health professional to make sure you understand the full impact of what stopping dialysis will mean.

Your wishes about where you want to die will be honored as much as possible. Many people choose to die at home, where they feel more comfortable in familiar surroundings. If you choose this option, your social worker can assist you and your family in making any special arrangements for your care at home. A nursing home may be another option for some patients. A hospital admission is not always available, depending on the nature of your insurance coverage and your overall medical condition. Your health care team can help you decide if hospitalization is an option for you if you wish.

You can name someone (such as a spouse, adult child or close friend) to make medical decisions for you, such as stopping dialysis, in case you are no longer able to make these decisions for yourself. This is done by filling out a form called a health care proxy or a durable health care power of attorney. The person you name to make medical decisions for you is called a surrogate. It is important to make sure the person is willing to act on your behalf and that he or she knows your short- and long-term goals, values and what treatments you would or would not want to have if you were not able to speak for yourself. It is helpful if you complete a form called a treatment-specific living will, which will give your surrogate clear directions about your wishes regarding stopping dialysis and/or other medical treatments.

In some states, including Oregon and Washington, people can get naloxone without a physician prescription, after consulting with a pharmacist. The medication can be distributed to people at risk of an opioid overdose as well as to people who want to help others who might overdose.

The responsibility for treatment decisions lies with doctors, but they will always try to work closely with family or carers to try to make sure that the choices are made in the best interests of the person needing care. Those around the patient should work together to consider what the person would have wanted, if they are not able to take part in discussions about their treatment.

In Northern Ireland, like in Scotland, if you set out what you want to happen in an advance decision document that is signed and witnessed, it will make it much more likely family members and medical and legal professionals will be able to understand and carry out your wishes if you do become unable to make decisions about your own treatment.

Soiling the bed. Muscles that control the bowel and bladder weaken. Your loved one may wet or soil themselves. Ask if they want to use an adult diaper or ask if a catheter can be inserted to drain urine.

If you're not sure whether you want to take any mementos of your baby home, it's usually possible for them to be stored with your hospital records. If your hospital doesn't keep paper records, you may be given these mementos in a sealed envelope to store at home. This means you'll be able to look at them if you ever decide you want to.

A post-mortem can't go ahead without your written permission (consent), and you'll be asked if you want your baby to have one. The procedure can involve examining your baby's organs in detail, looking at blood and tissue samples, and carrying out genetic testing to see whether your baby had a genetic disease.

At the beginning of the game, if the player examines the mirror in the mall bathroom, Heather mentions that she dislikes mirrors as she feels her reflection is some sort of a false image. Heather says, "I don't like mirrors. It's almost like there's an unknown world right on the other side. And the person staring at me isn't really me, just an imitator." Heather's mild spectrophobia (fear of mirrors) is emphasized by the fact that the mirror in her bedroom is covered, and she doesn't have a mirror in her bathroom at home. The game's infamous scene in the mirror room at Brookhaven Hospital is Heather's fear becoming a reality. Her spectrophobia may be caused due to her subconscious understanding of who she really is and what she has the potential to become, even though it takes quite some time in the game for her to begin recalling her past as Alessa. Many spectrophobics claim they fear mirrors as they are a "portal to look into the soul". Heather also has an aversion to fire (pyrophobia) because she sustained significant burns as Alessa. As the game progresses, it can be collected that Alessa's original personality traits and memories are surfacing in Heather, though Heather considers herself and Alessa separate beings.

In the "Normal" ending, Heather returns to Douglas at the amusement park, who is alive. Heather shows her rather dark and twisted sense of humor when she plays a frightening, cruel joke on Douglas, which made him believe she was going to kill him. Heather comes to terms with her past and ostensibly returns to her normal life. She also switches back to her real name, Cheryl Mason. Cheryl is then seen kneeling while visiting Harry's grave, having given him the decent burial she wanted. Because a memo in Silent Hill: Homecoming states that Douglas Cartland exposed the Order, the "Normal" ending is canon.

The creators of the game were attentive as to how "[Heather's] eyes spoke to the player", as they wanted to convey a feeling of anger and exhaustion. Shingo Yuri, the game's character designer, stressed that he wanted to retain the essence of physical flaws that are seen in Silent Hill characters, attributing to their attraction and appreciation by the player. Shingo continued to say that Heather was "no exception" to this, stating that although she was portrayed as a strong-willed character, she was still just a teenager, and her facial features were instrumental in portraying a heavy burden weighing down on the shoulders of a youth.

Not all end-of-life experiences are alike. Death can come suddenly, or a person may linger in a near-death state for days. For some older adults at the end of life, the body weakens while the mind stays clear. Others remain physically strong while cognitive function declines. It's common to wonder what happens when someone is dying. You may want to know how to provide comfort, what to say, or what to do.

If the person loses their appetite, try gently offering favorite foods in small amounts. Serve frequent, smaller meals rather than three larger ones. Help with feeding if the person wants to eat but is too tired or weak.

End-of-life care can also include helping the dying person manage mental and emotional distress. Someone who is alert near the end of life might understandably feel depressed or anxious. It is important to treat emotional pain and suffering. You might want to contact a counselor, possibly one familiar with end-of-life issues, to encourage conversations about feelings. Medicine may help if the depression or anxiety is severe.

In other words, you don't have to do everything on this list in order to save both races. Though the number of points awarded in quests can vary depending on their outcome, too, so really, it's probably wisest to do everything - just to be safe.

We're covering all three ship upgrades here, even though the potential casualities for lacking Heavy Ship Armor and Thanix Cannon don't include Tali and Legion. We just figure you might want to know how to, you know, save everybody from this gruesome early end. 041b061a72
