As a patient with a disabling chronic illness for two decades, I know what it means to choose death as a way out of misery. However, non-conventional options exist to manage symptoms and eventually heal from these illnesses. I have witnessed these in the lives of many people, including myself. Most of the time, a person who is suffering from a debilitating chronic illness cannot think clearly because of pain or brain issues. Penalizing a doctor just because he/she followed his/her good judgment and conscience is unjust and a disservice to the community.
