Why I Helped My Mother Die

On the night of 16th-27th December, Otieno gave her mother a large quantity of sleeping pills, holding her hand as she passed away. Months of suffering came to an end. It all started in 2007 when the elections started and the doctors told her mother that she was suffering from HIV/AIDS. Her voice was going and her breathing system was destroyed and her brain was not and she was Otieno and her sister to help her take her own life. She wanted to die and brought great emotional pressure to bear on you help her terminate her own life. It is possible to say whether what you did caused the final results.
