This chapter discusses issues concerning communication with a terminally ill person. It describes the case of an older man, Eli, who wanted to end his life because of his disease and who was perpetually angry about his condition. The chapter explains that Eli was always furious because no one was really communicating with him, and because he couldn't communicate with them either. It discusses the author's strategy of communicating with Eli that made him speak in a normal tone instead of shouting.

Keywords:   terminally ill, communication, shouting, furious, disease
