End of life is something no one likes to discuss, and don’t usually plan for until they have no alternative. It is certain, at least to me, that you can’t really plan too far ahead, because the details of the hospice care can vary with situation.
Being a former tobacco user back in the day, quitting was one of the best things I could have done for myself. It all started with chewing tobacco at age 11, bringing on smokeless tobacco and cigarettes later.
Even losing my mother (a two pack-a-day smoker) to lung cancer (and all associated diseases that tobacco use can cause) didn’t sway me none.
Moving to Japan when I was almost 31 was my chance to quit, and I took it.
Fortunately, my cancer was dealt with by surgery, pain killers and bandages. The latter was a tough one because I work with kids…and they have a million questions. Getting to the point, I was lucky enough to be able to do for myself, and continue my daily routine with no problems. Many aren’t so lucky, needing assistance and TLC sometimes. If u know anyone currently incapacitated, by any disease for any matter, this is a must-read article for everyone.
