I do not know how insensitive it sounds but out of compassion i can find more peace with a person passing away after beaten ''braindead''(it is kinda a srange term) instead of those that go years and years of possible feeling trapped in their own bodies before eventually dying.
Colleague of mine had a horrible accident and had about the same,not able to move anything and no chance to recover so trapped in his own prison with possible much pain and i pray not.
I feel the same way and was relieved for my mom and dad when she finally passed. She was stuck in a home for 5 years with advanced Alzheimers, didn't know who she was anymore, didn't recognize me anymore for at least a year before she had to go in a home (violent outbursts, walking away, not being able to take care of herself nor letting my dad care for her) and could only sit in a wheelchair for the last 3 years having to be fed.
The only consolation was that hopefully her consciousness had actually gone long ago and just the body kept going. Her ability to speak was also gone yet before that the moments of coherent sentences were already far in between. (Random bits of early / mixed up memories was the last comprehensible speech)
I also pray to be spared that kind of ending for anyone. So no, that does not sound insensitive at all. The stories about Covid19 patients trapped on Ventilators for weeks on end bring up a lot of emotions. At least they put most in a medical coma and don't remember the worst.
I was an Aged/Disability Carer years back and what you describe is actually extremely common... It's also one of the reasons why I got out of that line of work because you can see the breaks in families forming... And I am doubly glad to be out of that game during the COVID era.
It's not insensitive to wish for someones pain/suffering to end, it's extremely empathic, compassionate and humane... Seeing people suffer and being nonchalant about it... That is when you should be regarded as insensitive.
The USA is growing at about 120% change week over week.
Wasn't it supposed to maybe go away with the heat? It's summer in the North Hemisphere.
The incoherent ramblings of an idiot leader...
I would rather invest these $8 billion more in my own military if I would be Japan. Trump basically wants all costs for these soldiers and maintenance for the equipment to be paid even though a lot of these costs would incur without having these soldiers in Japan.
This guy and his blackmailing strategy around the world whatever it is about...ugly human being
Yeah. That is exactly what Japan should do, invest in their own economy and support their own workers rather than hand it over to the Americans.
If the USA demanded financial retribution for staying in Australia... I would say kick them out, then they can miss out on our training and support in the pacific region.
Sadly that won't really happen due to the looming security threat that China poses, so the USA can put that kind of pressure on and get away with it.
Wanted to say something here today. There was this lady in front of me in the check-out line not long ago and another lady asked her why she didn't wear a mask. The first lady answered "Because the president doesn't want me to and I'd look like a Democrat." I thought about telling her to go jump off a bridge if she had a death wish rather than taking other people with her, but I narrowly resisted. Selfish selfish selfish selfish selfish selfish selfish selfish STUPID fucking people like that!
Just pointing out that our level of political partisanship in this country comes with a death toll. We have GOT to stop thinking of every...single...goddamn thing in terms of ideologies and party alignments or it will literally kill us! And I don't just mean the irresponsible people.
It should be a bipartisan issue, not a democrat or a republican one, everyone is in it together.
But yes, she is selfish for not thinking about the health and safety of other people, her name is probably Karen.
But it's very interesting how a percentage of people will/won't do something unless their political figurehead says "it's okay" to do it, regardless if it's the right or wrong thing to do, it's like they are unable to make their own dynamic risk assessment and think for themselves... We should all have an obligation to look after ourselves and those around us.
