alzheimers news-would you

would i
if i could

here is an article  from the ny times
the last day of her life
about a person who planned her death
early in her course of the disease
then carried forward with the plan
when the time came

read and weep and think

in the movie still alice
alice planned her suicide
even had all the drugs ready to use
the problem was she couldnt follow the instructions

my thoughts are
yes i would like to do this
only after i had extracted every bit of cognitive time
i can from this life
when there was no more to extract
it would be the time
