My family had this discussion years ago. Everybody said they'd pull the plug on me so I will pull the plug on them, no questions asked.and anyways if they experienced severe brain damage there's a big chance that if they do recover, they will never be the same and then you'll have to live with and take care of a ghost and you'll be stressed out and hurt. I've seen it happen. I'm sorry, but even if I'm not brain dead but am completely paralyzed I would want somebody to just end it because I don't think I'd have a good quality of life. I would just be trapped in my body, with noone to properly take care of me or braid my hair

If there was little to no chance the person would not come out of it, yes.  I have stated many times that if I were brain dead or I was in a coma and had less than a 50% chance of coming out of it, I would want my family to pull the plug.  They were not too thrilled about that and insisted I get a living will.

Of course, I pray that no one has to make that decision.

To answer, yes-- unless previously/legally directed otherwise by the person in question. I feel that if someone I loved couldn't be at the same or mostly independent level of functioning, I gotta let them go. To keep that way would be more for my selfish hopes of having them back.

This includes me. I have it clearly stated that if things like brain death or a persistent vegetative state should occur, it's a wrap. I am now a shell. Harvest my organs and cut the machines. Don't let me suffer. I'm gone and will hope to see you on the other side.




^^^^^alluh dat.  I made it known to friends and fams that I am not to be held here.  take my insurance money, cremate me and and celebrate my ascension.

I told them that we need to know where everyone in the family stands on it so there's little to debate later on...mom avoided answering and my aunt flat out said to keep her on. I feel that's selfish. Who is going to handle the day to day for you to be a vegetable for months, possibly years? It's just going to cause unnecessary emotional stress watching her like that...not to mention the cost. When it's over for you, it's over. They need to let that girl rest in peace. She's been brain dead for weeks.




This has crossed my mind.  I wouldn't want to be a burden...financial or otherwise.  It sounds good/PC/proper to say that folks will take care of people hand and foot out of love but...I wouldn't want to see my loved ones in that manner nor would I want someone to have to take care of me like that.
