My father has been admitted to a nursing facility. It may be temporary, or it may become a permanent state of living. He may be in some stage of dementia and is becoming very nasty. He has always expressed the fear of ending up living in a nursing home, and has made it clear he would rather die, from anything, than end up living that way. So, as his mental abilities deteriorate and I wonder what his future is, I find myself thinking it would be best for him (and us) if he died naturally at this stage of the game, before he falls apart and drags us all down with him. Anybody else ever feel this way? I'm feeling guilty about this.
