decided to use my Askville avatar here,and so you all know it’s a sunset on the mountains behind our house here in B.C Canada that Mrs Squeeky took.

There have been people who suffered with great terminal illness, and then lived.
But I understand what you’re saying.
I knew 2 terminal women, both hospice patients who were told they were going to die. One was young, and one was old. Both were given morphine any time they asked for it so they wouldn’t have any pain.
The younger woman was early 40’s and told she would die the night she was sent to a nursing home to die. She would stay medicated day and night so she wouldn’t have to think about leaving her children behind. She had kidney/liver failure. There was no limit to the morphine and sleep aid and anxiety medications she requested. Though she was told she would die the night they took her to the nursing home, months later she was still alive because her doctor said her kidneys and liver had begun functioning again.
The older lady was late 80’s and she came home to die and in two weeks had family and friends bid her farewell. She too had morphine given to her by her daughter so she wouldn’t feel any pain. When she said her goodbyes, she told her daughter she was ready. Her daughter gave her extra doses of morphine to allow her to die.
So that would be an assisted type suicide, though she was old with cancer.
