18 years ago I found myself drawn to a light switch. Turning the lights on and off became an ordeal as every room’s light switch hypnotized me into gliding my fingers across it, pressing my fingertips against the smooth plastic until it satisfied me. A similar undertaking occurred with door knobs. I felt the intense need to wrap my hands tightly around the knob, releasing it and then grasping it again. I did this until the tightness in my stomach dissolved, until I felt calm enough to walk away. Around the same time, intrusive thoughts infiltrated my mind. They b...

In Reply We agree with Ms Hodel and Dr Trachsel when they conclude, “With improvements in the quality of care, there might be fewer requests for EAS.” According to the article by Dr Kim and colleagues, most patients receiving EAS for psychiatric conditions did not receive accurate treatment for their mental state and level of suffering that could have led to avo iding EAS. Dr Trachsel and colleagues suggested palliative care in psychiatry for severe persistent mental illness, including long-term residential care patients with severe chronic schizophrenia and insufficient quality of life; those with therapy-refr...
