“It’s the only way I can end my life.”
“I’m hoping that if people look at this and say, ‘You’re not going to take this, you’re not gonna take it seriously,’ it’s the way to end your life,” she said.

“I am not going for the easy road.
I’m not going there,” she added.
“I am going to continue to be the person that I am and make my life as comfortable as possible.”
