Teenagers tend to ask about the meaning of death to someone who is close to them. A teenager who asks why someone has to die is probably not looking for literal answers, but beginning to explore the idea of the meaning of life. Adolescents also tend to experience some guilt, especially if one of their friends dies. Whatever your teen is feeling, the best thing you can do is encourage him or her to express and share his or her grief.
And if you need help, there are many resources you can turn to for guidance, from books to community organizations to professionals who can offer counseling. Your efforts will go a long way toward helping your child get through this difficult time, as well as the inevitable losses and hard times he or she will face later in life.
If you feel that your own grief may prevent you from helping your child through this difficult time, ask a friend or family member to care for your child during the ceremony. Choose someone you and your child both like and trust, someone you don’t mind leaving the ceremony if your child wants to.

Over time, many patients accept the fact that they have kidney failure and will need treatment for the rest of their lives. Others may have trouble adjusting to the changes that the disease brings to their lives.
It is important to understand that the stresses and frustrations of kidney failure are real and sometimes very difficult for both you and your family. You may feel like your world is falling apart. Your family members may feel that way too, especially if the diagnosis was unexpected. They may feel helpless because they can’t do anything about your illness. They may be angry that kidney failure has affected their family or a friend. They may be afraid that you may die. They may feel guilty if they did not realize the serious nature of your illness.
You and your family will experience many emotions as you learn to live with kidney failure. You may feel sad, confused, anxious, fearful, angry, even guilty. Sometimes your feelings may change from disbelief and denial to acceptance or grief.

The Judiciary accepted almost all the requests of the lawsuit, except the one to extend the protocol that would be carried out for Ana to similar cases (although it did not develop the reasons for this). Thus, it ordered Essalud and the Ministry of Health to respect Ana’s decision and to take measures to make euthanasia feasible when she so decides. Although there are some discrepant points, from my point of view, the sentence is, in general, well supported. I highlight here a few ideas.
The first is that the ruling ratifies the role of judges as guarantors of the Constitution, and the obligation they have to administer justice (which is not the same as applying the law) in the face of gaps or deficiencies in the law[vii]. They are obliged[viii] to inapply the law if it is contrary to the Constitution (diffuse control), that is, if it violates and/or threatens fundamental rights. This is so even in the case of rights that are not expressly included in the Constitution, such as the innominate or implicit rights of Article 3[ix], such as the right to a dignified death. There are plenty of examples that fit into this category: the right to the truth, to food, to water, to a life free of violence, etc.

There is no simple way to deal with the irreversible effect generated by the diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease. Good news: most people thrive after the initial period of adaptation and come to accept it and find quality of life.
Parkinson’s and genetics is a complicated and personal issue. Talk to your doctor and consider consulting a genetic counselor. This expert can explain what we know about the genetics of Parkinson’s and guide you through what genetic testing can and cannot tell you. If you decide to have a genetic test, the counselor can also interpret your results.
The symptoms of Parkinson’s are different for everyone. People may have different symptoms, and the severity of the symptoms that appear in each case varies. The three “cardinal” motor or movement symptoms are slowness of movement (bradykinesia), rigidity and resting tremor. Not everyone has all three symptoms and not all people with Parkinson’s have tremor. Some people also have problems walking or difficulties with balance and coordination (postural instability).
