    Has never crossed my mind.

    Killing others? Different question.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    It's advice. As i said, with that kind of worthless antagonism at the start of the thread, no one's going to share much. You want offended look at #68.

    I do not believe lizzie would be offended by my post. If you were personally offended, I apologize... but I said what I meant and I meant what I said.

    No no, I'm saying that you were offended by those comments. At least, it seems so. Although i largely agree with you, it's probably best to not dwell on terminal illness, while we're relatively healthy.

    Re: commiting suicide ?

    I had some battles with depression a few years back, and on more than one occasion did I have my finger on the trigger. Obviously, never went through with it. Not sure if that makes me a coward or not.

    A lecturer once told me that suicide is made so as to either make everyone else feel bad about influencing (or not doing enough to stop) suicide, or to manipulate and gain something out of it dramatically. So though your empathy is nice you could be manipulated into being asked for things more than what you could deliver.

    Or jump on front of a bullet to save another more worthy non suicidal (like you) person:

    commiting suicide ?-bodyguard-jpeg

    Considered joining the secret service with that? I know I did after watching the movie and feeling suicidal during my teen angst

It is not for us to judge when, why and how life has become utterly unbearable for someone else. Shaming them by warning them how their loved ones will suffer is particularly cruel. All of us WILL die, and when we do our loved ones WILL suffer. Will they suffer less if we die slowly, over a period of months, slowly suffocating as our lungs give out, or crying in agony as cancer consumes us, or so awash in despair after decades of hopelessness and mental ravagement over which they have no control? They can grieve now, or they can grieve later... when they grieve should be my choice, not theirs.

    It infuriates me when people flippantly toss out the word "coward" to describe an anguish they personally have never endured, and could never, ever understand. How dare you judge someone else's pain, someone else's life? You are not in their skin, not in their mind, don't suffer their agony. You cannot know what they live with, and what's worse, you obviously don't even care. Just shrug, call them cowards, and feel like you are their moral and mortal superior.

    Until some day it is you who is dying by inches, suffering beyond your wildest imagination, and some cold, self-righteous ass looks you in the eye, calls you a coward for wanting the agony to end, calls you selfish for not thinking of those you leave behind, stares at you as if you are nothing more than a piece of meat that has no right to make decisions for itself.

    In answer to the poll, yeah, I've obviously thought a lot about suicide, because I for one will not spend my final months strapped to a respirator, gasping, waiting for the breath to finally stop, and the torture to finally end. It will not end that way for me. I will choose when, how, and where, and I will do so while I still have dignity. To those who call me a coward, may you never end up as I and so many others will... until then, **** you and your self-absorbed, ignorant hubris.
    Though I understand you anger, showing apathy to suicide may turn their anger from their self to that of the apathetic person. I do not know if it is the case but perhaps it worked with you?

    If some suicidal people use their condition to make everyone either feel bad or give in to their demands then a plain ruthless "I do not give a damn" may do the trick. That is all I am saying.
