Pray to get better. Have others fast, pray, or send vibes. Then go to the doctors who can verify if the prayers have been answered.
I didn't lose my mind - I have it backed up on a disk ... somewhere

I wrote out my living will when I was 16 or 17, right before my first brain surgery... Especially because with my Ehlers Danlos I can have a sudden organ rupture, or vascular event (basically a major vessel goes KaBOOM) and I happen to know enough that your brain can't survive without oxygen for more than 2 mins. I would NEVER want to "live" my life on a ventilator... As much as I admire Christopher Reeves, I could never do that.... If I can't BREATHE on my own, to me it just isn't living.
I was so confused by the whole Terri Shaivo (sp) case several years back... All of the pro lifers were saying to leave her on the tube... But isn't part of life death of the physical body? So if you were really pro life then you would also be against articfical measures to keep a person "alive"... Kinda makes you think, eh.
