Don't be, its his own damn fault. His doctor has been telling him for at least 10 years he needs to stop drinking and in the last 5 it has been upgraded to stop drinking you need a new liver. Now its "Stop drinking or you will be dead in 5 years." He refuses to help himself, I no longer have sympathy for him.

Ah, I understand. Addiction is hard, though. It's hard for me to really "get it" because I've never drank but I've seen enough lives destroyed by alcohol to know that it's no picnic.

Probably not. I'll donate blood or plasma any day of the week, but there is no way in hell I am undergoing major surgery for a stranger. If that makes me selfish, so be it.

I've done research and would like to do it one day. I also want to be a surrogate, and I've registered as a donor, so once I'm dead, I've given the state rights to everything (except my brain--which can only be donated for science), but they get my skin, limbs, everything. There are certain risks and such with live organ donation, which is why I would like to put it off for a couple of years (it's a serious decision, and I want to do more than just "sleep on it"). But I want to do it all anonymously. They don't know me, I don't know them; they get to extend their lives, and I get to feel awesome about it (once I finish recovering).

Ooh, cool link. Some folks in my immediate family have had cancer but I'm healthy as hell lol and never drank or did drugs, always a healthy weight, exercise regularly etc.



I think the cancer in my family was environmentally-caused anyway, not genetic.
