This is a topic to which I have given many hours of thought over the past few years. My greatest fear in the world is to be incapacitated and at the mercy of strangers. I have no close family left and, yes, I have an exit strategy. Can I carry it out? I'll know when the time comes........

Jules, I have also wondered if "I could do it". When I see the condition mom is in and have faced the reality that I could follow in her shoes, I've often wondered "if". I still don't have an answer.

I found this blog in my web travels and after reading it I was so in agreement with the writer and had to stop to think if "I could do it" The meaning of this you will understand after reading this. A very thought provoking article.
