On my other blog, I wrote a post about being with my father as he died. He was given the option for MAID, and he took it.
Note: Because I don’t know if wordpress terms of service allows me to discuss this form of death, please look up MAID dying in Canada to learn what it is. The people who read this and are in the medical profession, you most likely will have ideas and strong opinions about MAID.
Published by My Two Blogs : Christmas In The ICU and My Health My Blog.
I have two blogs:
www.christmasintheicu.home.blog which is about the Christmas of 2017. I spent that Christmas in an induced coma. The point of the blog is educate people about what being in the ICU is really like. No…. Being in an induced coma is not just like nothingness or like sleeping peacefully. I was left with PTSD from the things that I experienced while in that induced coma. If you want to know more, head on over there and read all about it.
myhealthmyblog.wordpress is about my cancer. I’ve had two cancers in less than a year. So many non-medical people are telling me what my recovery should look like based on the recovery people they know experienced. I just need a place to express my thoughts and feelings about my own cancer and not be told I’m doing it wrong. I’m very blunt and very honest. This is the blog I’m posting on the most right now but I hope to finish the other blog sometime.
Thanks for reading this.

I found you through the “serial likers” post. I “liked” (and liked) what you wrote, so I came by for a visit. I like likes, but love engagement, even if it’s just with a few kindred spirits that relate to my posts and find something meaningful in them. I’m a cancer and medical trauma survivor with c-ptsd, so I think finding your blog was meant to be. I support MAID as I would like that option in all of the states, but I don’t have personal experience with a loved one that exercised the option.

Thank you. My father was just days away from dying but he was offered it because he was in a lot of physical and emotional pain.
