@DeborahAlsina This is frustrating isn't it? Your mum deserves to have a plan in place for foreseeable events that she's helped to shape & respects her choices.
A few ideas and comments:
1. Advance care planning (#ACP) is the process that considers current & future care needs. Whose job?
@DeborahAlsina #ACP needs teamwork.
*GP is usually the coordinator unless someone else knows a particular person better as their patient.
*Plan belongs to & respects the wishes of the person.
*If the person lacks capacity, a plan using Best Interests decision-making can still be made.
@DeborahAlsina #ACP conversations might include
- person's best hopes/worst dreads. We want a plan to steer us as close as poss to their hopes & as far as poss from their dreads. This is a useful conversation for all of us to have with loved ones.
- decisions to decline specific treatments.

Great timing. Dispatched as envoy to A. Cen. 4 at height of Crown Fever season: doesn't bother Centaurs much, but is deadly to humans. So instead of fêtes and soirées, it's quarantine and Solitaire. Worse, Centauri's Spring is prettiest for light years!

[#hardshippost is a story I'll be doing in daily epistolary for the duration of the crisis. Stay tuned for more from A. Cen. 4!]

A Lieutenant in the Corps, 3 degrees in Diplomacy, but the closest view I get of the Centaurs is them galloping in the distance. Worse: I've dealt >400 hands of Martian Klondike over the past 2 weeks, and I've got the sneaking suspicion I'm cheating…

Dear Newly weds,
Know this:
1) You have the right to wait until you both are settled and ready to have children.
2) Using a contraceptive won’t make you infertile (if you have no prior fertility issues)

With an IUD, you can remove today and get pregnant tomorrow.
What is an IUD?
An IUD is an Intrauterine Device. Can be hormonal or non hormonal.
@lydiaiud is a small copper device that is placed in the womb to prevent pregnancy for up to 10 yrs and it does not contain hormones. 
 It’s a contraceptive that can be used both short&long term
How Does it work?
Once inside the womb, the IUD works by preventing sperm from reaching the woman’s egg. It does this by reducing the speed and movement of sperm so that none can reach the egg.#LydiaCoil
