I’d like to kick off this week by thanking all my new followers – 14 this week I think! If I can manage to keep up this rate on average, then I might even make 600 never mind 500 followers by the end of the year! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
As for this week’s #TOTW, well I make no apologies for returning to a topic that I often tweet about…that of assisted dying:
Interesting article regarding attitude of Dutch doctors to
#AssistedDying *READ THE WHOLE ARTICLE!* @GdnHealthcare http://www.theguardian.com/society/2015/feb/17/assisted-dying-dutch-doctors-patient-law-netherlands …
I keep coming back to this topic, as I don’t think there are many more important topics in one’s life than how and when one would like to die, and that’s just my point. I believe it should be our choice as to when we want to shuffle off this mortal coil. This is a conversation we should all be having with our loved ones…NOW…not when it’s too late and we’re not able to convey our views as to how and when we should be switched off, injected with a lethal dose of something, or whatever method is most suitable!
Read the article – all the way to the end – then talk this through with those around you. Please share this with your friends and colleagues, and let’s spread the word! The best way to get over the issues that people have with assisted dying (and to dispel many of the myths that surround it) is to get it out into the open and to talk about it, and not to be embarrassed or afraid to.
Go on…you can do it!
