No one should have to live with chronic, unrelenting, debilitating, soul-crushing pain. I am glad she is at peace and no longer suffering.

Powerful. Sad and moving. I support her decision, but that doesn’t make it any less painful.

One should have the right to end one's own life in a dignified way, to be understood, and to be respected.
