a few weeks ago I started a dialogue with a man named william peace. it was he who brought this young woman's plight to my attention. as a fellow psychologist my first thoughts were what did her therapist say (if she had one). then as you I felt if she were sound enough to make the decision, it was not any one persons job to change her mind. in my opinion the only course was to respect her wishes. after writing about this young woman in my blog I had expected to have some highly emotional responses. to my surprise that has not happened. as a fellow human being I can only believe that she made the correct choice for her. no one else can know her suffering and ability to carry on with that suffering. thank you for sharing your information and insight. if you have no obection, your article will be referenced in my blog (thedrsays.org) so that readers may read your article and get first-hand knowledge of this young woman life and death. again, thank you for sharing with those of us who wanted to know what has happened to christina.
