Have faith, be strong, encourage yourself.  They really can do anything they want; if there’s a will, there’s a way.  There’s so much out there.  The technology is progressing so much, and there’re so many people out there who are willing to help.  It’s tough; I’m not saying it’s not tough.  But, I think there’s great light at the end of the tunnel, and to be able to see someone who has suffered so much make a life for themself.  Encourage your patient.  What I’ve seen or heard of is that there are some patients who were just so terminally depressed.  They don’t want to go out; they don’t want to leave their home.  Go out. The world is out there and it’s wonderful.  Go take a walk, even if you have to take the vent with you, and if you have to take the feeding tube, and the whatever.  Life carries on, enjoy it, it’s great.
