ALS Assisted Dying Disability Japan

“I can’t move, I can’t eat, I can’t talk, my body…I don’t think I’m alive” writes the late Yuri Hayashi, ALS patient

"I wanted to forget everything for a while (though I couldn't do that), so I kept myself in my shell. I can't do anything, but I just breathe by myself. Are you doing your best? This body is regrettable and dear. But don't live with this body. I don't think I'm alive.”

It was reported on Thursday 24 July 2020, that two doctors were arrested by the Kyoto Prefectural Police for allegedly murdering a woman who had amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, at the patient’s request.

The deceased, a woman aged 51 named Yuri Hayashi, ran a blog and a Twitter account.

By her blog post on May 21 2018, Hayashi seems to be already losing motor control, she also indicates that she will start using her Twitter account:

“I wanted to forget everything for a while (though I couldn’t do that), so I kept myself in my shell. I can’t do anything, but I just breathe by myself. Are you doing your best? This body is regrettable and dear. But don’t live with this body. I don’t think I’m alive.

It’s hard to write a blog, so I’d appreciate it if you could take a look at Twitter. It is tangoleo.”
