For all my myLot friends - I would like to share some advice that some of my friends on myLot told me about. I thought I'd share it with you, since it can really multiply your earnings on myLot. I have been informed that, when you post/reply to discussions, if you write at least six lines, you will be paid a higher amount for that, than if you were to just write one or two lines. If you can keep your sentences short, then six lines is not a lot ! So friends, try to keep this advice in mind for your future discussions and the money start to add up quicker than it was before.

Easing the pain and suffering

    I had posted the following post some time back and wanted to repost it since it is still relevant today as when I had posted it long back. People need solutions to ease the pain and suffering and not laws which tie their hands down and cause extreme hardships not only for the patients family for also for the patient. I hope people and the lawmakers out there realise that we need to modify the legal system so that people can exit this plane of existance with dignity.

    I was talking to a friend of mine sometime back and it really got me thinking. She mentioned to me that when she recently visited a hospital, she had noticed that some people were hooked up to machines which kept them alive. They were completely dependent on the machine. It was because she had gone to visit a close family friend who was hooked up to the machine. She visited her daily, without fail. All the time she had either stood by her bed or sat next to her bed watching her waste away into someone she didn't know, her eyes would fill with tears and look at my friend in a way that said, "I know I won't be here much longer and I am in pain:...her begging eyes to help her was overwhelming sometimes. She could not walk, could not talk there at the end...just those "eyes" that told her what she be set free from this prison that she was imprisoned in. I myself had an aunt who died of cancer and it was really awful seeing her waste away day after day and everyone knew that the end was near. Yet we could not do anything to lessen the pain she was in.

    But our hands are bound by rules, regulations and laws and we have to watch helplessly as they suffer. Assisted suicide are illegal in some parts of the world. But I think it should be made legal, but under certain conditions. Like for terminally ill patients...who have no hope for survival, Cancer patients who are in their last leg, people involved in horrible accidents with no chance to live a normal life, and who are in horrible pain with no chance of survival, someone who is born with some genetic defect which makes their life hell and it gets worse and worse over a period of time, etc. This is a very sensitive issue which should be handle delicately. The family and patients should be given an option so that the pain, suffering and the negatives side effects are minimized. I hope the law makers out there are listening and change the laws just enough to help mitigate the patients/their families pain and suffering.It really saddens me to see patients and their families suffer untold agonies, and it won't change until like I said before, the laws are modified to lessen the suffering.
