    Re: commiting suicide ?

    I had a rough time growing up in a number of dimensions. The end result was for the longest time, I did not like me, because I had been so hurt and I blamed myself (as children do) for my misfortune. During that time, I often thought of suicide.

    When I got older, I started discovering who I am, but I spent a long time very lost within myself because I did not have an accurate self concept. During that time, I often thought of suicide as well.

    As I got even older, I fully realized who I am and that I quite like who I am in a very quiet and serene way. At that point, I never again thought of suicide, even when things were really bad.

    What did it for me was not necessarily a lack of strength, cowardice, or any other failing. It was a lack of accuracy in my point of view, which caused me to get all mixed up on a number of dimensions. Depression can be like that. Its not necessarily failing to meet a challenge, but more of the result of confusion which causes a different kind of despair.

    Nope, my mind is in order.

    Re: commiting suicide ?

    Thought about it seriously once, but nothing more than that. I've dated two guys that had attempted suicide way before they came out out the closet.

    Edit: Other than that, I believe that a completely rational person can come to the conclusion that ending his/her life through assisted suicide or voluntary euthanasia is the best option when faced with an irreversible or fatally progressive disease, that will cause their quality of their life to become unacceptable or unbearable.

    Yes, exactly. And I imagine many people wouldn't find my life worth living. I happen to be paranoid most of the time, whenever there are allusions, I think people are making fun of me. Whenever random people laugh, I feel it's at my expense. All the time, even when that are totally random occurences, I think there are people making fun of me.

    But what helps me is that I know that's most likely not the case. I have to tell me that. And usually, I am successful, although I am maybe only right 95% of the time, and overlook the 5% when it's true.

    But hey, I have learnt living with that paranoia.

    Maybe I need to give you some of my pointers on not caring if people make fun of you or not.

    When you go into it with them about mental health, it's always "not real", a "BS excuse", "stop whining" and so on. They can't relate and have no desire to, so that's the end of the 'debate.'

    Well, I talk about it anyway. To each his own, I suppose, but I am not intimidated nor hurt by other peoples' lack of understanding. We all see things based on our own experiences.

    That wouldn't be suicide?

    It would be what is known as suicide by cop, or in Goshin's case, probably suicide by bad guy.
