grinding_journalist: It may sound callous, but seriously, just execute this person

After seeing dementia happen to my grandfather on my mom's side and my grandma on my dad's side, I gotta say that you better hope and pray that it never happens to you.

And meet your new status. Bye. Forever.

bubo_sibiricus: And meet your new status. Bye. Forever.

I get that this person put me on ignore for taking something way too personally, but after seeing dementia take relatives of mine, I wish they could have passed peacefully in their sleep before it set in. I wouldn't wish dementia over death for anyone. I can't see how years of life with dementia is superior to the alternative. I know I feel the same way- if it's ever clear that I'm losing my mind and don't know it, pull the plug, please.

She can't keep a house, kill her off. Just send her out on the ice flow like all of the other elders, amirite?

As someone caring for an elderly parent I would be the first to sign up. My mom is in constant pain, is hospitalized regularly and has just enough mental acuity to understand her mind is slipping away. I don't know why she doesn't eat a waterglass.

Hey, someone who gets it!

/better pull it now hurr hurr

Forgotten Lady, the only crook Columbo didn't put behind bars.

Family's defence is that she's endured decades of abuse? So nice of them to step in and try to stop it by legal means before, particularly since she had some level of dementia.
