This made me cry today.

I know that might be a weird title, but I'm not the emotional type at all so weeping from a podcast sort of blew my mind. Anyway, I wont get into specifics but the podcast is a people piece that made me feel human and I wanted to share this with everyone.

He who says it cannot be done is interrupting the man doing it.

I don't see it. Yes it's a sad story for them, but there are hundreds of similar ones, of which dozens had documentary videos, books...
So why is this so heart touching?

And did anyone notice how nothing was enough a proof that there might be brain activity for the familiy?

Look, she moved. Get her to rehabilitation to get better?
Nope, she's done for, go to nursing home

Look, she responded verbally to a touch. Rehabilitate?
Nope, nursing home.

Look I can talk to her by writing on her hand
Literal quote:"Still not enough, let's try with hearing aid"

Erm... gee parents, you might have at least tried to get her to rehabilitate even though it's not for sure yet.

Well its hard to say why this one moved me out of so many other similar stories, but it did. I mean theres a lot of reasons I think this in particular got to me. I dunno. Maybe it was just accumulative. The 'day to day grind' can sort of drone me out, I was listening to it while walking home and it just hit me hard. I think its a beautiful story, regardless to how unspectacular it may be.

horizon: I also thought it was weird the doctors and family were just reserved to sending her off to the nursing home. I guess they just lost hope when the boyfriend hadn't yet. I can't think of anything more torturous than being trapped in your body unable to express yourself in a nursing home until you die.
