Have an opinion?
what if you change your mind in years to come? besides it will never be a legally binding document anyway
Hospitals are obligated to respect rhe tattoe. Legal documents are at many times ineffeificent because by the time CPR is done and if successful documentation is not found.
what country are you in?
But what country? :P
ok so different law there. so other points... will they notice a dnr tattoo or even know what it means? perhaps spell out the words. if you dont pay your insurance would they even bother to try to keep you alive? and finally as i asked before, what if you change your mind?
So, in America hospitals have to legally save your life, it is ruled by the government unless the person requests for a DNR. I am quite sure every doctor would know what DNR stands for, even if that is the case I can write it out below. Also, if I have DNR this will probably have the responders search for the legal DNR papers.
As for me potentially changing my mind, I highly doubt it.
so thanks for clearing that up but you seem to be avoiding the question of what if you change your mind? i mean loads of people had celtic bands in the nineties and now they are so out of date and unfahionable but they are not easy to cover. a dnr statement is more a matter of life and death than a misguided fashion statement though
What do I have to lose, when I am already dead?
ah i see you did finally answer that... any way ofcourse you doubt that at your age but let me tell you we all change over time
its not about you... what if you become a father. what about your kids? the ones that depend on you
My daughter died three weeks ago.
that is very sad and no one should have to deal with that so i understand your lack of desire to live but you still have the potential to be a parent again
She died along with my girlfriend. I don't think I would ever want to be in a relationship after all that.
life does go on but i know thats hard to hear right now
I would, if I may talk, suggest to carry on. I have, thank God, not yet been in such a bad situation as you have. What I have lost were only three of my best friends within a short time frame. I developed a depression and certainly shared some of the thoughts you have. However, from that I know that life goes on. I started having my own little project just to keep me occupied and I guess it helped me to craft something with my own hands. I'm not suggesting I know how you must feel or that what I did will help you. I merely am saying that you should hang in there until things get better.
I'm aware that life goes on, but I don't want to live in this world. I don't have any real goals to aim for besides to spend money.
I don't believe in a God, I have lived a good life, never done anything bad and have has all my intentions try to be good. But, of course I am somehow punished withour reason.
I highly encourage you to visit a Councillor. If you don't want to life you lose nothing but a bit of time.
I have a therapist I vist weekly
My mom has a Do Not Resuscitate tattoo. I mean I don't care for tattoos but sure why not
1) What's DNR?2) Don't.
Should look it up.
Being from somewhere else I don't get the same results as you, unless you're a diehard fan of the Deutscher Naturschutzring.
Do Not Resuscitate
Oh man, that would be an interesting dilemma if it happened over here. The doctor would probably get you back from the dead you anyway. I'd advise against it either way.
But y tho
Should be semf explanatory.
Yeahh itll just confuse doctors
This is nothing new, it is pretty clear what I want done if I flat line.
