Today, there is an ever growing demand for control over the time, place and means of dying. Many governments are passing laws which allow people to choose death once it appears that their life will end soon anyway. It is hard to argue with their logic. Why shouldn't we have the option of death with dignity rather than the desperate struggle of the suffering in their last days? This book is not an attempt to argue the legality or morality of assisted suicide. It is birthed from my own encounter with the desire to escape from incredible pain. In my struggle, I came to the place where I wanted to die, I prayed for death, I longed for it to come but it remained at a distance. I read books on suicide, made plans on how I could do it and ensure success and walked right up to the edge of that chasm. Few people really understand the kind of pain that can drive a person to that place. My encounter with a very rare, untreatable and painful disease brought me to that place. As a Christian, I met God there and he taught me some valuable lessons that I want to share with you. Some of you may feel guilty for even having the feeling that you want to end your life. Others are even at this moment making a plan to finish it. I'm not here to condemn you. Please just take a moment and listen to my story before you do anything.
