Abstract or Description

Having withstood one year of "therapeutic" torture, Dax maintained one persistent request: he asked that the painful bum treatment be stopped, and he be allowed to die. His doctors, convinced of the stability of his physical condition, assured him that as long as he continued the treatment he would live, and that eventually he would be able to return to a life of "relative normalcy." Dax, however, did not wish to endure any more pain, and did not see an acceptable future on the horizon. He wanted to pain to end; Dax wanted to die.
