I'm in the same position you are. I'm 33, have multiple sclerosis and doctors told me I can look forward to the next 50 years slowly becoming more and more disabled. My grandmother (has MS too, can't figure this out) sends me magazines showing MS patients in wheelchairs and in the disabled olympics (skis specially fastened to themselves).
This kind of thinking scares the *&*^ out of me... I guess according to the left I'm not worth the time and effort. Maybe if I had breast cancer they'd hold a rally for me?
According to some of them I should have just been murdered in the womb, if there was a way to predict who would have MS or CP or anything else some of us end up with. Thank God my husband doesn't feel the same. Both of us pray for Terri and her family.
And pray that we are able to maintain the sanctity of life position over the quality of life position in our society. Who is anyone to tell me what my QUALITY of life is? Or you?

Because since you are not 100% perfect in some eyes you can't possibly know that you life is meaningless. When I was growing up I kept hearing from adults that to become parents it should be licensed. The problem I saw was who decides who should and should not be licensed.
I am the parent of an autistic child who can drive dead people to drink He is now 12 and has COME further then I ever thought he would. His "normal" school gave up on him. Now he is doing math problems where he has to borrow.
Our society has become expedient and if you hold us down you got to go...IMHO.
Thank God you and your Grandmother are part of this life :)
