I always had thought that I could not be an organ donor (blood condition that stops donation)
however, on talking to the people at the organ donor drive at our shops a few years ago I found that I am still able to donate things like cornea's, cochlear, skin etc .... so with that I signed up.
No matter your circumstances, some parts of you can still be used usually.
I am not. DP is.
I would never override his wishes knowing he wants to be an organ donor.
We both are, to the best of my knowledge, although who knows if any organs will be in a fit state to be transplanted when we go.
DH and I are both registered as organ donors, and our wills also specify that we wish to be organ donors.
I know that wills are unlikely to be looked at in time in the event of a sudden accident, but it means if one of us was on prolonged life support, there would be no question what our wishes were.
