    id hate to have people walking in my hospital room just staring at me with pity. id rather have a quick easy death. friends and family could mourn and move on instead of forever mourning.

      there was an experiment where people where completely isolated form everything. the test was supposed to last 42 days. The subjects went insane after 4.

      @CutiePie Well... That's a bad way to die, I'd rather stand loyal to the end and die while defending my friends.

      Why have you all chosen to die? That's the stupidest thing ever, litteraly. Let me explain: Imagine losing an arm, it would be bad right, riiiiight? NO! It's just a little less positive, imagine being in a world where everybody had only one arm, it would be no problem at all. If you have locked-in syndrome you lost a lot of positive stuff, but that doesn't mean your life has become negative.

      @mouwersor, we would rather die than sit still until death, not bieng able to ee, poop, or eat without tubes going in and out of our body. And anyways, (For me at least) I would rather ascend to the Heavens than a fate nearly worse than hell.

      @mouwersor It's not "a little less positive". You're a vegetable. You can't move, drink, go to the bathroom, talk, ANYTHING, without the help of tubes and other people. And the worst thing is: you're aware of it all. You're stuck, sitting there, trapped in your body, watching as all of this happens to you and around you. Can you imagine the humiliation of having to watch someone wipe your butt? Of drooling down your chin like a baby until someone wipes it up? And the worst thing is: you can't end it. There is no going "Oh hey, this kinda sucks, I don't like it, I wanna die now" no. Because you're technically still a functioning human being, you can't have the plug pulled. There is no choice of killing yourself. You're stuck.

    Well, assuming that we never find a cure, dying right away seems the better way to go. But in all actuality, we're getting pretty close to giving them a lot more power. Not restoring them to the way they were before locked in syndrome, but hooking them up to computers in such so they can type and surf the web.

      I guess you guys just really believe you'll be going to heaven when you die. Otherwise you must just not like life. By the way, a guy with this syndrome wrote a book, which was also made into a film: "The Dive Bell and the Butterfly", I believe it was called.

      A cure to cancer is "in sight" yet we still haven't made it. If a cure is not in sight, it will probably take longer than your lifetime to get it.

    Its not about the length of your life. Its about the quality. I'd rather spend 10 minutes with Emma Watson then 10 years with an ugly person. So this is basicaly quality over quantity.

    Why would you want to die?! Imagine all the things you have better than a dead person, basically everything you have and can do. You could enjoy life without being able to move or communicate.

      how? You can't move, communicate. The only thing you can do is watch or listen to people having fun around you. You can't laugh smile or express yourself in other way except perhaps blinking if that. And you can't do a single thing for yourself. Without other people constantly taking care if you you'd kick the bucket. I'd go mad...IN A DAY.
