Nightflight, I can hear your frustration, but there is a TON of help available here for you, to make this transition easier. And I must ask, because I hear this as well, are you being treated for depression?
I have to disagree on the dying thing. To go through the rest of my days feeling tired is a burden I can't handle. I've had some relief from the machine, but I am still tired. The thought of spending the rest of my days like this is a very heavy weight; its not like I had a lust for life in the first place.
No, I'm not being treated for depression. Been there done that.
