  1. When is assisting in suicide legal

    I think terminally ill patients should be taken seriously and their dignity should matter most. Ordering helium from some guy on the internet should not be the only option they have. 
  2. When is assisting in suicide legal

    There is a very good documentary called "How to die in Oregon". In Germany however it is against the law to assist someone with ending his life. Even though there are several treatments which come quite close to assisted suicide, but they only happen at the very end of terminal illnesses. One is called terminal sedation. It is a common and widely accepted way to prevent suffering at the very end of life. Another form of treatment is to give the patient increasing amounts of morphine to prevent pain until the patient actually dies of the effects of the morphine. 
  3. What made you laugh today?
  4. Why are you unhappy today?

    I recently returned to Toytown, after a long absence, and all I see is sadness and pain. My heartfelt condolences to Serenissima and Malt-Teaser. May your dear wives rest in peace.  And Fraufruit, as a mother of two now almost adult children, I can not begin to imagine the pain you feel for the loss of your son. My thoughts are with you. I have lost a dear friend and only since reading about his death 4 days ago I have realized how strong my feelings for him really were. I miss him so much that I feel like my heart is going to break and the tears are running down my face while I write this. The saddest thing is I am never going to find out what happened to him, and I will never be able to tell him how much he really means to me.

    My beautiful Mama and me. Happy Mother's Day to all mothers on Toytowm. ❤️
  6. I wish I could write to his family. I would like to tell them how much I enjoyed the conversations I had with Tony and how, even though I only knew him over the internet, he had such a heartwarming presence in my life ever since I first started taking part in his "guess the movie from the picture" thread, many years ago.
