On preparing an advanced directive

It has been on my list of things to do but I have not had the chance to get to it unfortunately. But it is very important to outline what you would like done in the event that you fall into a situation where you can no longer communicate your wishes.

I’d like to outline them here for reference so that at least my family may know what I wish:

No experimental surgeryNo life-support when
brain death
partial permanent damage of brain controlling vital function
disfigurement

… I realize I have to do more research as I am not familiar with what the clauses must include…
Anyways, it’s vital that you live knowing that we all die and it is vastly better to be prepared.
