Is there already a thread on this? Sorry if there is, I couldn't find it and I need to talk about this! Has anyone else watched it?

I watched it, and found it very touching. I thought the family was very brave to allow / participate in the documentary.

What do you think OP?

My heart completely went out to Simon, and I was horrified by how quickly MND was robbing him of his quality of life. I think at the start I found it really hard to see the point of view of his wife Debbie, and I couldn't understand how she could deny the progression of his MND but it became clear that really she just didn't want him to die and wanted to hang on to him as long as possible.

When he was talking about not seeing his young family grow up it broke my heart. You could so clearly feel the frustration he was feeling as he declined further and further. It was just so quick. I'm so glad Simon got the death he wanted. I hope his wife can come to terms with it in time because it seemed to be really at odds with what she believed.
