Thank you for that additional information.

The only way to obtain such a medical and legal document is to have a complete evaluation by a team of doctors that consisted of an internal medicine MD, a Psychologist, a psychiatrist and possibly a clinical social worker. In many cases these reports would then be presented to the Court to certify that you capable of making this critical, life-ending, decision.

It can not, as I am sure you can understand, be done online.

Does this make sense to you?

I realize that this was not the answer you were hoping to hear but it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information.

Surely, you prefer that I tell the truth rather than what you wish to hear. Because it reflects very poorly on me unless you press one of the top three feedback choices, keep this in mind when rating my answer and please do not punish me for being honest. I understand that this may not be easy to hear, and I empathize.

Even though my answer was not quite what you were hoping for, please understand that my priority was to provide you with the most honest information. With that in consideration, I hope that you found my answer useful. Please click the excellent feedback button so that I can receive credit for my efforts.

I wish you the very best.
