    • I need help

      12 years ago

      VBSetter

      So i am writing a huge research paper on Physician Assisted Suicide and I would like to get some opinions on the Death With Dignity Act. So if you could say if you voted for or agents it (or which way you would have voted if you could) and why it would help me a lot! Below i will list some facts about the Death with Dignity Act if you do not know much about it:

      NOTE: Physician Assisted Suicide is when a doctor prescribes a lethal dosage of medication for the patient to fill and take themselves on their own time. This has nothing to do with "pulling the plug"

      Requirements:
      patient must be:
      -an adult (18 years of age or older)
      -a resident of Oregon
      -capable (defined as able to make and communicate health care decisions
      -diagnosed with a terminal illness that will lead to death with in six months

      Steps to receive a prescription for lethal medication:
      -the patient must make two oral requests to his or her physician, separated by at least 15 days
      -The patient must provide a written request to his or her physician, signed in the presence of two wetnesses.
      -The prescribing physician and a consulting physician must confirm the diagnosis and prognosis.
      -The prescribing physician and a consulting physician must determine whether the patient is capable.
      -If either physician believes the patient's judgment is impaired by a psychiatric or psychological disorder, the patient must be referred for a psychological examination.
      -The prescribing physician must inform the patient of feasible alternatives to DWDA, including comfort care, hospice care, and pain control.
      -The prescribing physician must request, but may not require, the patient to notify her or her next-of-kin of the prescription request.

      Facts:
      -during 2006, 65 prescriptions for lethal medications under the provisions of the DWDA were written. Of those 65: 35 took the meds, 19 died of their underlying disease, and 11 were alive at the end of 2006.
      -since the law was passes only 292 patients have died under the terms of the DWDA.
      -participants were more likely to have cancer (87%) and around the median age is 74.
      -the most frequently mentioned end-of-life concerns were loss of autonomy (96%), decreasing ability to participate in activities that made life enjoyable (96%), loss of dignity (76%), and inadequate pain control (48%)

    • My Semi-life Update/Song about Poop

      12 years ago

      VBSetter

      Once again, I am SO sorry for not being on as much, i'd thought i'd update you as to what's been going on in my life since about december when i was last really on here. It's actaully quite boring: I've been working, my dad informed me that he'd like this graphic design project done by the end of this month so i've been working my butt off trying to get this done, but it's not looking good because the guy that is training me took a week to look at files that ended up not exisisting because of a techical error. So i'm oober behind on that. I've worked i think close to 90 hours this month. I also have a math final this week.
      Oh and last week i did this presentation on Rock Climbing safty, and it was awsome, I actually like giving speeches when i'm talking about something i know and care about. I've also been climbing a lot, it's been really fun and i'm perdy sure i'm getting stronger. Although, I can only make it up a 5.8 for those of you who know the yosemite grading system, but i'm getting better.
      Also, Tyler turned 18 on the 16th. We went to dinner on his birthday but he had to work that day to so we didn't see eathother much, but it was still fun smiley0.gif .
      I also got accepted into OSU and i've found a roommate and i also think i've figured out i might want to be a math teacher cuz i like math and they get the summers off so i can climb and travel.
      Sorry this was so long, I'll leave you with a song about poop:

      On the very first scrub's christmas special, they created this song to discribe Turks Christmas Eve:


      Twelve Days Of Christmas: Sacred Heart Version:
      On the first day of Christmas
      My true love gave to me
      A drunk who drove into a tree

      On the second day of Christmas
      My true love gave to me
      Two shattered skulls
      And a drunk who drove into a tree...

      Twelve beaten children
      Eleven drive-by shootings
      Ten frozen homeless
      Nine amputations
      Eight burn victims
      Seven strangled shoppers
      Six random knifings
      Five suicides
      Four beaten wives
      Three O.D.'s
      Two shattered skulls
      And a drunk who drove into a tree

      Hey! So I noticed you're from Eugene, nice to see a fellow Oregonian! I thought you may be interested to know about a Rooster Teeth event based here, in Oregon! It's called RvBOR, and we'd definitely like to see you there! Any/all information can be found in the Oregon RT user group.

      I know this is a long shot, but I've been going through some old, old stuff and I kind of remember you. If you make it this far to sign back onto Red vs Blue maybe you're willing to make a bold move and check up on me after all these years. If you have facebook add me: Joshua Le... I'm the asian guy standing back to back with a little kid.

      Because you opened this you will get kissed on Friday by the love of your life. Your crush will ask you out. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't send this to at least 10 people by midnight tonight you will have bad luck in your love life.Every night, someone thinks about you before they go to sleep. At least 15 people in this world love you in some way. The only reason someone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you. There are at least 2 people in this world that would die for you. You mean the world to someone. Someone that you don't even know exists loves you. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it. When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look again. Always remember the compliments you received. Forget the rude remarks. So if you are a loving friend, send this to your friends, including the person that sent it to you. Tonight at midnight your true love will realize they like you. Something good will happen to you at 1:00-4:00 pm tomorrow, it could be anywhere. Get ready for the biggest shock in your life. Copy and paste and Send this to 15 people in 15 minutes
