If someone you love has a terminal illness and he/she is in so much pain, would you take the risk of him/her becoming dependent to the point of becoming addicted to pain killers as long as you know you're helping him/her relieve the pain? If your doctor told you that your family member is so sick that there's nothing more he/she could do to cure him, would you graciously accept it and watch your loved one slowly die? What if you hear of an option that could wishfully cure your loved one's illness but has the risk of becoming addictive, would you take that risk even if it's not proven to be a sure cure? These questions have been on my mind for quite some time now ever since I learned that someone I know is dying of a terminal illness. The family is not losing hope of finding at least something that could extend his life even for a little more. Even the option of considering marijuana as a hopeful cure to his cancer. I know nothing has been proven about it but it's what's keeping their family hopeful at least for now. When they thought of giving up, they somehow found this answer. It's not a promising answer but they are hoping for a miracle. They say they have nothing to lose now because he's dying anyway. They might as well do everything to fight for his life rather than watch him die without doing anything. It might be irrational in the eyes of some people but I fully understand what this family is going through. Maybe if I were also in their situation I would also do something similar. I would go far to fight for the one I love.
