  • Loss of hope

    http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage...cle1826583.ece


    The grieving parents of paralysed rugby player Danny James last night told of their decision to help their beloved son die — at the heartbreakingly young age of 23.
    "His death was an extremely sad loss for his family, friends and all those that cared for him, but no doubt a welcome relief from the prison he felt his body had become and the day-to-day fear and loathing of his existence.”

    After only 18 months? At 18 months my co-workers were still expecting me to return to work soon, some I think may still feel that way now.
    please . . .test what you already know; and give us what you have. we may not be dying, but we certainly are not living either

          Sad news. Sounds like he was probably a C4-5 injury?

          Too bad he gave up so soon.

          I'm sure that his parents are heartbroken.

                Maybe there's more to the story...
                I hope that his story wont be forgotten, and be a constant reminder for people who research in SCI and people who oppose the very same research, what challenges, as survivors, many of us face - everyday.
                My heart goes out to his family.

                  You can't judge that guy or that family. One thing I've learned is that no one can tell someone else what there limits are. whats hell for me or you may be bearable for others and vice versa. i find it annoying when people tell me how i should feel about things...

                      His life, his decision. Why so many harsh feelings?

                      It reminds me of Ozymandias. Sure he was loved and is missed, but there wasn't anything in this world that was keeping him with us. His mother cried and pleaded with him. He had support from all around, but just didn't want to live in his condition.

                      At least in the end the rugby player was able to have his parents with him when he died. It's a terrible situation and I hope his loved ones can find peace with his decision.

                            i guess everyone feels he took the cowardly way out.
                            I don't agree on this.

                              Some of you People sure are Something. You may not agree, But NoOne should critize His Descion!! Even Those with Similar Conditions, Because Everyone is Different. Only He Knew what he was Going threw.

                              His Descion is Very Admirable. Prevention of wear and tear on his family alone is something of a selfless act.
                              Shame soo many are too Stupid and Greedy to realize what truly matters in life.
