“Bobbie Carroll isn’t scared of death itself. She is more frightened of how she’s going to die.
The 64-year-old has been close to it before when she spent five days on life support after contracting an infection from a stem cell transplant.
“This is probably close to what my death without euthanasia will look like. It is horrific. I never want to go there, I came out traumatised,” she says.
“You’re only allowed two visitors a time. I couldn’t talk, I had tubes. I’m not going to go there, either legally or illegally. There’s no dignity, absolutely no dignity. It’s horrific.”
