    Re: commiting suicide ?

    I voted "attempted once", although it was never serious in my case.

    But I have sympathy for people who feel they cannot stand life any longer. It's really their business.

    But I have learnt to stand constant pain and fear. That's nothing that would cause me to end my life. Rather it has contributed to me embracing faith.

    Yet I wouldn't condemn anybody who doesn't find that strength.

    That's really what it boils down to in some cases. Learning to tolerate the discomfort of your mind not working right, or in the manner that society deems "normal".

    Yep. I will say that compared to many other paranoid schizophrenics, I am pretty well of, since my symptoms are under control most of the time. And I am incredible thankful towards modern psychiatry and its medications, since they allow me to have an almost normal life. I embrace the medication, although it has many ugly side effects (such as weight gain and decreased libido).

    But I have perfect sympathy for my brethren who think that price is too high. Or who are too deep into the illness to find benefits in medication at all.

    Like anyone here is going to do any sharing with comments like "cowards" and "selfish" being thrown around. There's frankly better forums than this to disclose.

    Well, that IS the way that a good many people view it, and I don't have a problem with people expressing those views. Suicide is a pretty touchy subject to me, but I am perfectly willing to discuss it openly, whether anyone agrees with me or not.

    Re: commiting suicide ?

    Anybody who say it's "cowardish" for someone to end his life, I'd like to ask if he has *really* spent time with a seriously depressed or psychotic person, and tried to do his best to be there for him or her, and to save him.

    If not, I'd say, you should be more cautious saying that.
