Karen -  Of course you have sympathy and plenty of it for those who elect to terminate their own lives.  I've read too many of your love inspired posts to think anything to the contrary...and so I don't.  Best to you this morning.

Graflexmaster,

 

I didn't accuse you of anything.  In fact, I didn't even mention you (or anyone else for that matter).  However, I seem to have struck a nerve.  If you need help discerning the difference between right and wrong, just ask and I'll be happy to help.  I do know the difference between right and wrong.  For example:

 

It is WRONG to take heroin and cocaine, not because they are illegal, but because these drugs almost always cause serious damage to those taking them.

 

It is WRONG (and selfish) to commit suicide and often greatly hurts those left behind.

 

Right is right.  Wrong is wrong.  It's just that simple.

Well, now Dr. Rob Schneider (NOT!) is saying that his PD drugs made him commit suicide.  Way to go a**hole.  Get a whole bunch of people scared to take their meds, despite the fact that the suicide rate of people with Parkinson's disease is similar or lower than the general population.

 

Also, if you want a political discussion, can I request you create a separate thread. I do not want to go over the Michael Brown stuff here, as we've seen in other threads, that many of us have very differing opinions when it comes to politics and I just don't want to get into that here.

PatrriotM,
There's no discussion when you pull out straw man. When that happens, it all becomes ridiculous. If you are going to do that, why not change your name to Moral Police or Mr God Man, you know, just to save us all some time for the next time we need to know how to think or conduct ourselves.
Age 47
Dx 9-14
Rigidity in shoulders and back. Left foot/toe cramps, but right at times too.
Primary left tremor in thumb index finger (wrist intermittent)
Spasmodic Disphonia with tremor
Jaw and tongue tremor
REM Behavior Disorder
Mirapex ER 0.375 nightly
Zonisamide 300mg nightly
Clonazepam 1mg nightly
Sinemet 25-100 (3× daily)

Preferably in a different forum
