    weather to try a new treatment (if I'm a candidate) or just let it take me when the time comes.

    Decision Point

    I just got out of the hospital where they tried to put me to sleep but it didn't work they messed me up badly emotionally and physically. I have no support system except for professionals no one close to share with and I'm sad and scared.

    My mind/Sense of Humor

    Loss

    My family has turned their backs on me. My friends are distant and don't want to deal with me or my dying,

    Relationship

    Loss

    After saying goodbye to my 5 children my 2 sisters and my 2 friends and then NOT dying, no one wants anything to do with this anymore, or to have anything more to do with me, I lost all my supports. I am giving up on everything because without people who care if you're alive or dead, I feel and am totally alone and helpless. I hate my life.
