“I can't do anything about myself, and what am I doing to protect the individual human being?”

The Kyoto District Public Prosecutors Office on Thursday August 13 indicted two doctors for allegedly killing a woman with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), an intractable disease, at the victim’s request.

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

On March 28 2019, Hayashi wrote a blog simply titled ‘Myself’.

I thought when I was getting dressed for a bathing visit

“I can’t do anything about myself, and what am I doing to protect the individual human being?”

It must be protected by communication with people. It’s the same with blogs and Twitter.

Shortly after receiving the diagnosis, I exchanged emails with ALS patients several times with the introduction of my doctor. She started using the eye-tracking Mighty (which I’m using now) and was told to send me an email. We exchanged a few simple things about the situation. That was my first conversation with another ALS patient.

About a year ago, when I asked my doctor about the patient, he was in TLS (complete confinement) and was unable to communicate at all.

How does she keep herself… sometimes she suddenly thinks about her…
