How Doctors Die

A pet issue of mine: end of life medicine. Please read this article. I have known several people who have opted out of treatments they knew would make them miserable and simply used their final days to the best of their ability. I admire their decision. This desperate need to stay alive at all costs shows a complete lack of faith, and I don't mean religious faith necessarily, but mere faith that death is natural and it will be okay.
