Even when he tried to stay optimistic, fear and anxiety set in often in Schwartz’s mind. He experienced fear and anxiety related to impending death. Worries of missing out on his son growing up and not experiencing romantic moments with his wife ever again filled him with both terror and grief.
For instance, hematological malignancy can include symptoms such as fractured bones, recurring infections, and ongoing contusions. In reality, this patient would try in every possible way to fight the disease but once they hit a dead end, meeting death in a dignified manner would be the simple solution rather than to die in a hospital bed unrecognizable to even yourself. Once a patient is diagnosed with a terminal illness, life, as they know, it is hard to live. In many cases, euthanasia appears to be the more suitable answer. In my o... ... middle of paper ... ...illness to die because of the emotional burden that succeeds death.
This shows that people understand and sympathize with the pain a loved one can feel. It is for the reasons above that I believe that euthanasia should be legalized under the premise that the patient must have terrible quality of life and be suffering from a terminal illness and that a physician will administer the injection under the direction of two other physicians as to stop the possibility of misdiagnoses. I also believe that a person who has been in a coma or on life support but still has no chance of survival also have the right to euthanasia. Euthanasia is a hotly debated topic as it can make someone questions their deepest belief into what they believe is the meaning of living.
Also, when Mr. Woodifield mentions the boss’s son’s grave, there was “[o]nly a quiver in his eyelids [that] showed that he heard.” Through Mr. Woodifield mentioning the grave, the boss had memories of his son flood back into his thoughts. His eyelids quivering are an indicator that the memory of his son is surfacing after being buried for so long by his work. The boss is obviously upset, because he states that he’ll “‘see nobody for half an hour’” and “‘[n]obody at all.’” He needs this time to recover his mind after the memory returns. Also, in this half an hour of down time, he “picked the fly out of the ink” as if to help it, showing that his grief over his son is resurfacing. When he drops another drop of ink on the fly, he buries his grief until it resurfaces again after all the ink is gone.
In the story “The Swimmer,” author John Cheever successfully shares the reality of alcoholism using symbols and imagery relating to his main character, Neddy Merrill. Merrill’s social status declines the further his journey goes. In addition, the pools Ned swims through represents the different stages of drinking. Cheever unfolds Ned’s life by connecting it to the “The Lucinda River,” named after Ned’s wife (727). The river starts out steady for Ned, much like the beginning stages of alcoholism, as his journey progresses, the current sweeps him away causing Ned to become delusional in his waking life.
He went to the emergency room and discovered that his heart developed and arrhythmia because of how much alcohol had gone through his heart over the course of years. He was given two options in order to survive this ordeal. One was to take medicine and wait to see if it fixed the problem or they would have to shock his heart and re-shock it to reset it. My father was lucky the medicine worked. His eyes became yellow because his liver could no longer keep up with the amount of alcohol being consumed.
Alcohol had always left an impression in his life through the good and the bad he was known to be an alcoholic. Alcohol intoxication was clearly the cause of death for Edgar Allan Poe. Poe was found delirious off in a ditch almost a week after he had gone missing. There is proof that Poe was an alcoholic the letters that were found between him and his cousin stated that though he wished he could, he wished that he could stop drinking but it seemed as though he needed alcohol in his life. Another cause for Poe’s addiction was definitely concurring due to the loss of his parents along with the loss of the love of his life, his cousin.
Carver provides a bird’s eye view of life at an alcohol treatment facility. The alcohol treatment facility illustrates two characters who struggle with alcohol, listen to and encourage one another as they struggle to dry out and make a fresh start at a rehabilitation facility (Messer 54-55). Not all of the alcoholics that enters Frank Martin comes out alive or even “cured” of their illness. Jack London for example, was killed because he couldn’t handle alcohol (Carver 526). The narrator admits his sickness and his failure and is constantly reminded throughout the story of his personal adventures.
Grieving is the body’s healthy way of getting over extreme mental blows. It can happen quickly or over a long period of time, but in the end, grieving is always realized. In the book Wave of Destruction: Erich Kruass, the movie The Impossible: Juan Antonio Bayona, and several news articles grief can be seen through death, loss, and depression. Death is an obvious event that causes grief. People cope with death through denial, crying, and anger.
His father is an alcoholic who is very malicious while drunk, his father was admitted to a rehab center, their family doesn’t have the most money in the world, and his best friend was murdered by his insane mom. From these things, Mike lost his innocence, but he also gained the gift of maturity. While most wouldn’t consider his childhood remarkable, Mike made the choice to learn from this. He learns that “in the gray, churning turmoil of human conduct there could be love-as constant and powerful as the movement of the earth, and as tender and delicate as a child’s prayer” (Roers 180). As one can see, from all the harsh and grueling things Mike endured while in the process of diminishing his purity, he became mature.
