I would if I thought it would help SB.Think Spain brought it in a few weeks ago.I genuinely think we treat our dogs better than people when it comes to end of life.

It does SB.....and makes you step up in sometimes very difficult situations,i think it's important to get all the family on the same page,friction can add to an already difficult situation.

Ireland is a country full of garglers.Some sort of dementia is coming to us all in the end.The human body was never meant to be kept around past middle age.Most of us peaked 20 years ago.Holy fuk I hope they bring in Eusthnasia by the time I have to go.And I also hope I'm lucid enough go ask for it.

I imagine getting old is like an extended lockdown that you never get to escape.
Survival, our strongest instinct.

My mother didn't get it, and died at 92 in 2017, but her sister, and mother got it. Her 2nd husband has it, and is in a nursing home since last September, having been with me for the previous 3 years. It was ok when he could still go out, walk around, and come home, but he had a heart attack about 2 years ago, and since then he could not be let out of the house on his own, as he would make a bee line for the house in which he was born 89 years ago. At first the lady in that house was understanding, but got irritated  after a few times. He wouldn't stay in the house, and I had to drive him around Dublin, and Wicklow for 2-3 hours every day, heavy going after a night shift.

Looking at all these guys who headed the ball (headtheballs) getting it, I'm wondering if the 2 bangs which I got on the head to date will have any consequences. Aged 18, I came off the motorbike and, though wearing a helmet, the bang I got on the head was enough to damage an eye muscle/nerve, causing me to tilt my head to 10 past 6 until I had surgery recently. The second bang was when I was helping some GAA training for kids, and the trainer gave me the block pads, and he proceeded to demonstrate the shoulder tackle for the kids. He lifted me 6 inches off the ground, and I came down with an unmercyfull whack on the back of the head.

I wonder about the consequences for my, not so young, young lad, who fractured his skull, and was lying for 11 hours with blood compressing his brain. 4 hours of surgery saw him fine after coming out of coma 8 days later, and 18 years later he shows no ill effects.
