    #7 @Jason Baudendistel as Matt wrote, it sure does take a lot of courage to write about subject matter like this. Matt and other men write for the Goodmen Project and have shared personal struggles too. Much of my writing is about my anxiety disorder with ensuing depression on occasion but like you, it does not define me. I've always hoped when people read my material that they realize, I am not my illness and I too, am high functioning. So, I totally understand what you meant. I've written many articles with the hopes of touching another that may be going through something similar so they understand, we are not alone. My goal is to be part of ending the stigma. Again, thanks for this!

    your story is sad yet, nicely translated about so many's pain and sufferings, not able to cope up to the adverse situation one may confronting with @Jason Baudendistel! but, suicide is the only resort will surely narrow ones vision and that cannot be an axiom for many to follow. however, it is certainly heart rending.

    Hi Jason, I concur with what @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher said and trust you have the help required to stabalize your situation. I talk with experience when I say that adversity can be incredibly challenging at times, that life can have mysterious ways in presenting itself at the best of times. This experience and the fact that you have been so transparent with the truth tells me that you are comfortable with yourself, you will have strengthened yourself through the process and perhaps you will go on to help others in similar circumstances?

    Short and to the point @Jason Baudendistel. I'm sorry things got so bad that suicide felt like your only way out. Did you get the help you needed after the 72 hr suicide watch was over? Keep focusing on the plans that lie ahead and the idea that plans can change but that's not always a bad thing. Through struggles we either swim or sink. I'm glad you are still swimming and ended up back on shore! Thanks for sharing this, there is no shame in sharing when the brain becomes ill.

    Great tips for healthcare providers. Many times people become frustrated because they feel they aren't being listened to or even feel as though they are being treated indignantly. Also, many patients are scared and they may neglect (not on purpose) to reveal vital info and that's why it is important to gain the patient's trust because they will feel more at ease to share if they feel trust.

    I love the idea of this technology to improve patient flow @Jordan Barta, it reminds me of ER and triaging. One thing that has changed and I'm not sure what the answer is- the fact that many Dr's practices are now owned by large hospitals, they no longer run their own ship and they must meet a certain quota per day. This makes it difficult on the Dr., staff and patients because they are not afforded the time they used to be. Now, if a patient visits a facility like UPMC and see's a Dr. who also does teaching and research, he/she is not expected to meet a quota and you do get much more quality time. In the meantime, this is a great idea.

    #47 You were all so young @Louise Smith. We ranged in age (myself being the oldest) from 10 yrs to 18 months old. Everyone in my family dealt with dads death differently. My brother had night terrors after dad died and his memory became blocked of any memories he had of our father to this day. My brother and I are only 15 mos apart in age and we spent SO much time with my dad together. As an adult now, I cry for children who lose a parent too, they can't understand. I really thought dad would return, at least for a while. I think that was my way of coping or not??? I'm not sure of your age but when we lost dad they didn't have Hospice, or other programs available to children and their families back then. It was as if we were all to stay hush after the funeral because death was a topic you certainly didn't touch back then.

    #15 I think that's what frightens so many of us @Jordan Sands. I have to hang on to all my strange experiences and keep believing that our physical bodies die but our spirit lives on forever. I honestly believe the less we (as a society) talk about death, the more fear keeps building. For me, it feels healthy to talk about a part of life that is just as inevitable as birth.

    #44 Hi @Aaron 🐝 Skogen, Isn't it nice to feel that feeling, that we are never far from each other even after death? I'm not sure if I missed your blog about your NDE and accident, what happened? I have had 2 dreams about my dad since he passed. They were dreams like no other. It's hard to explain if a person hasn't experienced dreams that are more like an encounter. I never remember most of my dreams and if I do just small fragments. One dream- my Aunt had the same dream on the same night. I began to tell her I had a dream of my grandparents (her parents) and from that point on she cut me off because she was so excited to tell me she had one too. Our dreams were identical. The scenery was the same down to their clothing. i also saw my dad on a dock fishing off in the distance. That's the only part of the dream that differed. Thanks for your comment, appreciated!

    #45 @Lisa Vanderburg """The strain of it all must have brought about his final event as his eyes rolled back.""" Not possible to attach to that. You are not part of that equation except in circumstance. You are not of any responsibility, though the attachment through emotions is a heavy fog. I remember when the Sargent came to our door and informed me, 7yrs old, that my father was dead, I asked what is dead because reality of any kind was not communicated to me, so that shock I am so familiar with. Perhaps your father had cheated death many times and never told you. Our mortality is not a choice and we view life as a series of choices. I can assure you of one thing. Your father was very blunt and appeared even cruel though he was just over compensating because he knew there would come a time when he could no longer protect you and he needed to know that he toughened you up. Take peace in knowing you and he did the best either could with the awareness you had at the time. Perfect is 100% effort though we cannot be of perfection or flawless.

That had to be so tough. I have a 14 yr old Boston Terrier and he can be such a pain (said like a mom) but I love him. He loves to be covered up like a person, will even cry until you cover him with blankets and I DREAD when that time comes. I lost my cocker spaniel in 2004 and it took me a while to get over her loss. It's weird, my boston will stare and keep looking back at me in the same area my cocker always lied down. Animals have a much stronger sixth sense than humans.

    #36 I love this statement @Lisa Vanderburg "Death is at least as deserving of every honor, dignity and sanctity that birth should be" How true, we should go out with the dignity we come into this world with. Birth is just as much as a mystery (life/soul) as death is. We understand how babies are made but not how life truly comes to be, same can be said about death.

    My father died when I was 6yo. We did lots of things together. My sister was 2yo & my brother was 1yo. I remember some of the things that happened at that time but can't write about them.
    While studying psyc at uni, I did Lifeline Telephone Counselling to get some specific knowledge and practical experience. It took me a while but finally realised why I cried when young people called to talk about the death of their parent/s or someone close to them.

    #41 Thanks so much @Kevin Baker; my apologies; disrespect was directed for the dead, dying and those that watch and wait and suffer. But I see the distinction you mean...maybe it's my own spiritual bend alongside the author's perspective to think that even those who have been found alive some time after being termed deceased still do not take the same 'path' as those who truly leave for good.
    Just an aside here, when my dad died, it came as a bit of a shock. Not because he was old and terminal and had been for the past year or so, nor because he had just been moved into his palliative bed at home. It was 'my night' to give my step-ma some sleep and the first night of oxygen and morphine should he need it. We all knew it would be soon. Yet that evening a few hours before, he'd been barking orders for his brandy & ginger, telling us all off for being 'wimmin' and holding court for the males - the usual. During the night he slept for a few hours (I kept vigil in a twin bed next to him) and he began to wake. I asked him if he needed anything. He waived an arm in irritation and told me to get him up NOW! I was faffing with the bed-controls and he was struggling to the point of trying to get through the bars - kept pushing me off. The strain of it all must have brought about his final event as his eyes rolled back. I ran to get ma who took over and came back after getting my hubby and called the fam.
    I digress - it was a shock because he was such an intellectual giant, Master of all he surveyed and his last words to me were typical; 'oh SHUT UP WOMAN!' If anyone could've cheated death, it would've been him:)

    A wonderful and difficult topic @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, thank you so much for sharing. I know our loved ones are present after they pass. I touched on that topic a year ago in my post about my grandmother. Her hand still holds my arm, years later. . .

    I am a spiritual person, and I believe our time on earth is but a brief period in the journey of our spirit. I too have had a near death experience. I don't remember much, except a brief ( I think, but who knows) and overwhelming sense of comfort, despite my body being severely broken. In the end, its a simple reminder to take each day and be present.

    #17 If you ever 'buzz on' by my neck of the woods @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher I will show them to you in person;-) It seems we have shared a common experience with 'seeing' the otherwise unseen...That is very precious indeed.

    I have to say my most poignant moment with the realms of the unseen was when my kitten died years ago...Her picture still hangs on the wall in my office...The loss of a beloved pet has a way of bringing a grown man to his knees in agony...and a baby kitten...well dear God...just shoot me now.

    She used to jump up on the foot of the bed and crawl up my body to curl herself around my neck at night and purr me peacefully to sleep...The night she died I was a 'puddle' of a person...holding her collar in my hand and wailing like a baby...as I exhausted myself into a state of 'in between' ...I felt her jump on the bed and make her way up my body to my neck as she had always done...The sense of peace I felt was so overwhelming I thought my heart would leap right out of my chest.

    In that moment a sliver of light appeared in the darkness of my room...like a door opening ever so slightly...I told her it was time for her to go now and I'd be okay now that I knew she was...A light brush of her tail and she was gone...and once again I fell into a peaceful sleep. Blessings to you love;-)

    Thanks for sharing possible causes of dyspnea @Michael Ghalchi. Many causes which should be looked into by a Physician as you listed above. My husband had increased SOB in 2011 and it appeared it was not Asthma related. He had asthma for years. After many trips to a few Dr's and tests- it was determined he had Sarcoidosis. He also has chronic Tachycardia and was put on Cardizem which did not help. It lowered her BP too much, so he's not on it at this time. The Dr. feels he may have something called PoTS Syndrome, so more testing is needed. Definitely a reason to see your Doctor. @Sandra 🐝 Smith, thanks for tagging me. Yes, a person can feel short of breath during a panic attack, it's a physiological response and it eases up as the panic attack begins to wane. It's scary because the person feels like they are possibly having a heart attack due to other symptoms that may accompany the panic attack. Thanks for tagging me!

    Charlie Gard... why people need to think before they 'like' or 'share' on social mediaI'm seeing a lot on social media about Charlie Gard today. Some of it is very negative towards Great Ormond Street, some of it calling the parents 'selfish' (really?  Try their situation for an hour!)  Much of it is just plain uneducated nonsense....

    #5 "Here's another shocker - 80% of mental and emotional wellness in the US is treated by prescriptions originating from non- specialist practitioners! Not a healthy situation." @Ian Weinberg
    In Massachusetts, the mental health system is fairly corrupt, so it doesn't matter. There are only 550 beds in Massachusetts, and going to the ER for placement could be a death sentence. http://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2017/06/10/arbour/AcXKAWbi6WLj8bwGBS2GFJ/story.html?p1=Article_Inline_Bottom. Unfortunately, there are many places in Mass where a patient could go in fairly healthy and end up dead. No one is ever charged in their deaths.

    I remember your story https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ian-weinberg/the-shameless-and-the-damaged. This demeanor is prevalent in the field. How a group of people gained such power is beyond me. Reminds me of the Holocaust.

    #17 I always figure my story is one of many. This attitude did not magically erupt because of me. I am nobody. This has to be happening large scale, and as @Ian Weinberg informed us, 50,00o died in one year because of medications. The problem lies in doctors are seldom charged with negligent homicide. If they were charged, watch how quickly this would subside.

    #14 Yes people simply are good and/or bad. Fortunately the GPs who refer to me are good - caring and vigilant. I ask my new clients about their relationship with their GP. If it is bad, I suggest they find another who is good. It can mean the difference between life and death as you and I both know.

    These days each individual needs to be able to research their own health problems and respective healing and medication. Unfortunately most people still just trust the Health Professional without checking.
    People are starting to become more aware esp when there is a major possibly terminal health issue and get 2nd & 3rd opinions. Also checking for side effects etc.
    But this takes literacy & computer skills, logical analysis perseverance and time. Not everyone has these !

    Thanks for another brilliant buzz, Joyce. Alas, I have some good news...
    As you may know, futurists, scientists and bio-medical researchers say that fast evolving nanotechnology and quantum computing will ultimately allow nano-robots -- which are infinitesimally small -- to enter our bodies, seek out and kill the bad DNA and bad cells which cause cancer and ALL diseases. Obviously, this won't sit well with Big Pharma and the drug community which robs ill Americans in desperate need of their drugs. But the future does look bright, at least in that respect. That is, at least once we get there!

    #5 I was encouraged to challenge my mind and I have.

    As far as deaths go, two of the drugs I was put on could have had fatal consequences when they interacted. You would think that should be negligent homicide, but no. At least I am aware of some things, but I should be able to trust my doctors with my life. Not so for that either.

    Prescription drugs have become more than big business and unfortunately are a product of the greedy trying to make money off of the needy. I agree - there are no ethics or false ethics.

    I'm not sure about MS aggravating or accelerating dementia @Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee but we do know that the 'fogginess' of mind experienced in MS would definitely aggravate the cognitive deterioration in the dementia's. Just out of interest 50 000 people died in the US in one year directly as a result of prescription drug problems. Here's another shocker - 80% of mental and emotional wellness in the US is treated by prescribtions originating from non- specialist practitioners! Not a healthy situation.

    A little diversion for a moment. Prescription medication is so expensive in the US of A compared to Europe and Canada. The US of A is part of the World Trade Organization(WTO). Why cheaper drugs can't be imported from Europe and Canada?. They are claiming the European drugs are not safe. If so, why American pharmaceutical companies are buying up European companies and moving their Head Quarters to Ireland and other European countries? Greed!!.
