Subject: Never too young for an advanced directive

Forum: Never too young for an advanced directive
Full code, do not resuscitate, the 5 wishes, the Most form, AKA your final wishes...Who has this?

7 months into my residency and I'm realizing that it is never too early to have these desires established. My wife and I are in our early 30s and we have discussed these things. I think for people our age it is easy to say, DO EVERYTHING if I'm severely ill or medically compromised +/- if things look futile. We are young, we haven't lived our lives and we have a decent chance of survival.

Then you have the 80 year+ crowd, they fall to either side...1) I've lived my life, I don't need tubes or artificial nutrition, let me go. Or 2) Keep me alive as long as possible, only God can take me. Obviously those are gross simplifications of most people, but you get the idea.

The most difficult age group is the 50-65ish crowd. Lived a decent amount of life with some years to go. I find that this age group has the hardest time making end-of-life decisions, still young but with some physiologic signs of aging (that they may or may not acknowledge).

Do any of you have advanced directives? Who are the people close to you that know your wishes? If you don't have one, what's stopping you? Have you had these discussions with family members? How did they go?

Subject: Re: Why Are You Watching the Olympics? Why not?

Forum: Why Are You Watching the Olympics? Why not?
I watch the Olympics because it offers a good background for doing other things. I find the different events very entertaining, except figure skating. Although their tricks are very impressive, the routines put me to sleep. I think of it more as "athletic art", not so much a sport.

I do enjoy snowboarding and skiing. They go so fast and the tricks are awesome. With all of the data and metrics presented about the different sports, it is easy for me to be entertained.

Subject: Re: Wonder Woman and Yesterday's Stupidity

Forum: Wonder Woman and Yesterday's Stupidity
AWESOME topic! Although legally allowed now and a change you have mentioned, I think same-sex marriage/families will be fully included into society just as everyone else. Right now it seems to be regional throughout the country. I think (hope) that it will be "normal" and no one will bat an eye.

The biggest change that I see coming in the next 20 years is legalized marijuana. So many states are jumping on the train with medical marijuana. I don't see how recreational use won't be far behind. It seems to be pulling in revenue for some states and I can see others wanting to get into it.

Subject: Re: Baby Piercing - when is it ideal?

Forum: Baby Piercing - when is it ideal?
What the hell! I don't think any parent has the right to pierce a childs ears. No one has the right to force anyone to do anything with their bodies, especially when it is a baby that cannot make decisions for themselves. It would be way different if the child asked for piercings and the parents said yes. This is so wrong.

Subject: Do any of you use LinkedIn?

Forum: Do any of you use LinkedIn?
I made myself an account a few months ago and I check it about once a week. I am going into science so I am not sure how much LinkedIn will help me, but I'm also not sure if the site is worth it to keep updating and making connections. Has anyone had any success with the site?
