Frozen as Time Passes by.

It's been one month since my little and only brother took his life. Over the month I have had time to reflect on all our time together and have come to accept and forgive him. He told me he would do it years ago if he was pushed too far. He was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis last year in May and the doctor said it would be years until it affected him. Upon ex-ray for viability of organs (donation) we discovered his condition had progressed more quickly than in any patient with AS in his age bracket. It would have been a matter of months before it killed him. He was in a tremendous amount of pain, his spine was fused, and millions of nerves were being severed as his spine fused around them. He could not get medical help thanks to the Obama Crap. What else was he supposed to do? He said from the start that he was never going to be in a wheelchair, that he would die first. Bravo*
