I'm not quite sure why I've been invited on this list. Most of you may
know me from my posts to talk.euthanasia.
My mother's `substance' was music. In that you find some people do not
understand your spiritual delights, you may not have understood hers.
When she was given a psychotropic drug in hospital - scopalamine patch, I
believe, for nausea which she did not have, it was most terribly
distressing having her seeing mice in the flower pots. It was the gravest
obscenity doing that to her at that stage of her life.
How can a sense of humour mentioned by the introducer of the list be any
other than a terrible insult.
