Hello I would shudder to think what would have happened to mum had I not been there. I also shudder to think what would happen to me if I were to be an AD patient in the future. I have no siblings and no children. I have a lot of good friends but mostly much older than I am. If I were to outlive my husband and my friends and have AD.... ? Would it matter ? Should it matter ? I usually cross the bridge when I come to it but what if I couldn't see the bridge or didn't know how to cross even? What can one do now for this eventuality ? I know some of you have talked about living wills and the like but as I said, for someone like me - no siblings or children, how does one go about such things ? (This part of my question has now been deleted on request. DEAR MODERATORS/TP MEMBERS : PLS ACCEPT MY SINCERE APOLOGIES. I DEEPLY REGRET HAVING RAISED THIS ISSUE HERE.). PS: The capital letters are meant to emphasize and not to 'shout' Sorry if I offended anyone with my question. I am otherwise an extremely optimistic and positive person but I have been asking myself this question for some time and just thought I will post it here for a discussion. I don't even know if this is the right place or may be it should be moved to the Tea room ?
