I have always read the obituaries. And I saw her obit in the NYT . I was so moved I cut it out to keep. So happy to see a link to her story here at Death Café. Thank you for posting it.

I am so grateful for the link of this article. Many if my hours during the week are spend with people who are terminally ill, who are in chronic, crippling and all consuming pain and feel so incredibly isolated because the discussion of suicide is a taboo which they aren't able to break. I am not advocating suicide, have been on the phones of Lifeline for many years, preventing people from seeing suicide as their only option but must say that there are times when suicide is a rational decision and it needs to be talked about. With much gratitude for sharing this, Phoebe ❤️

I don't think anything can help me sometimes. But when I say help I don't mean 'Proffesional' help. only thing holding me back is my Dad. i know my sis will be ok but I think if i do it my Dad might have another heart attack. He's almost 80. I want indipendance but cant leave for fear of his heart failing. Although in recent years he has become VERY fit.
