Writer's Block: Every ending is a beginning

If a loved one got diagnosed with a painful, terminal illness and asked you to help them terminate their life before they deteriorated, would you do it? If so, would you want to be present during their last moments?

....well, I don't know if I could do it. I know they'd be in pain but... I think that would be too much of a burden on me in either direction, whether I helped them or not. if I helped them, I would always have a sense of regret that there may have been a possible chance for them to get better, which even though they may have a terminal illness, you never know when a miracle may happen. and then if I did not help them, I would feel responsible for leaving them in such pain when they had asked me to help terminate their life... and knowing I was responsible for that would eat me alive.

I do know for sure that no matter what, I'd be by their side during their last moments if I chose to help them end their life. at the very least, I could give them all the support I could as they passed on...
