I’ve given this a lot of thought. I’d like to think I’m brave enough to wait until I’m given a fatal diagnosis, backed up by a second opinion. Or if I were given a diagnosis that would cause me to be a burden on those I love most in the world. I’m sure there will be disagreement, but I really do want to be able to love and hug. If I can’t love and hug, pull the proverbial plug. I want a DNR at that point.
How about you? Under what circumstances would you like to have a DNR, if at all?

I believe in humanity. I am an Egalitarian. I believe that we should help and take care of one another as a family, as a community, and as a country. A woman's body is hers just like a man's body is his. A child should never know hunger, neglect, abuse, or be denied education. Likewise, our elders should be given the respect they've earned while the generations below should be actively looking towards the future.
I am liberal in political views. I am a feminist. I am extremely vocal against sexual assault and domestic violence. I am not classified as a Christian although I believe in the teachings. I will probably piss you off at some point and that's okay because you'll probably do the same to me. As long as you are respectful I will be as well.
