    That is the most selfless suicide that isn't reliant on your own will. But it's a lot of hard work!

    I've thought a lot about how to commit suicide without hurting people

    it's hard

    and it kinda cheers me up, too

    going through a list of all the people who would be sad if I was gone, or distraught if they learned that I killed myself, too

    The problem is, as soon as you went missing people would care again... and then there'd be no closure because they wouldn't even know why you were missing.

    That would be worse.

    Nobody would know you were missing though because they would no longer be talking to you due to the alienation and they would assume you resumed your life on the other side of the country.

    Re: Suicide, this is the best article I've ever read on the subject. Quoting the relevant bits:
    Self-euthanasia is major trend in the making. Each year in the United States, some 26,000 men die by their own hand, including some smarter, braver men than you and me. Hunter S. Thompson. Kurt Cobain. Spalding Gray. David Foster Wallace. These were men of infinite accomplishment, finances, and talent, and we will miss them. But if you're going to check out, you must first promise to take on a more difficult task. You'll have to wait 7 days, and in that last week of your life, you'll have to perform what I glibly refer to as the Three C's. Don't worry, the time will fly by. Like the final week at a job you hate, every moment will be gilded with nostalgia and sweetened with the knowledge that you're a dead man walking. The Ultimate Temp. The game's almost over, and you're just running out the clock.

    The first C stands for Clean. Clean your bathroom. Clean your car. Do the laundry and scrub the grout. Pull out the refrigerator and wipe behind it. Wash the windows. Do everything. The second C stands for Cull. Ransack your files and discard everything except your most important papers. The same goes for your closets and memorabilia -- really, all your possessions. If you haven't looked at it recently, toss it. Donate it. Destroy it. Throw all your history and secrets into the garbage. Do the same with the aged contents of your medicine cabinet and kitchen. Also, spring for a really good haircut. Despite popular superstition, human hair does not grow beyond death, so you might as well look good. Treat yourself. Pamper, pamper, pamper; you have my permission.

    Any man will tell you that it's not the big disasters that finish you. No, given an invasion by hostile space aliens or an attack of flesh-eating zombies, most guys will grab their coats and hats and run out to join the fray. Even a run-of-the-mill earthquake or forest fire constitutes a nice change of pace. Instead, what grinds us down are the parking tickets. The spoiled food in the back of the fridge. The dirty clothes at the bottom of the hamper that haven't seen daylight since 1995. Once you allow a critical mass of these petty annoyances to collect, you're sunk.

    Regarding Culling, my point is: If you can shave, you can live.

    The third C stands for Connect. This means contacting everyone you've known and saying something nice. No matter how much you hate them, let go of that bitterness. Identify some aspect of each person, something you've secretly admired or envied or coveted, and praise that something. Say how jealous you were of his career or happy marriage or a particular merino wool mock-turtleneck sweater.

    Yes, this process feels like a huge humiliation, but what do you have to lose? Forget your self-pity. Forget your anger and defensiveness. Forgive everybody and forgive yourself. In another week they'll be gazing down into your casket, feeling just awful. So for now, throw them a bone. Give them a break.

    Beyond that, fully imagine your death: the cozy warmth, the pleasant wooziness. The sound of your favorite film or music playing in the background. Envision your sparkling bathroom and empty filing cabinets. Then imagine the world without you. The same traffic jams and famines. The same political crap fights and your team never making the playoffs. People will forget you. Everyone will forget you. You're no Kurt Cobain, so just light your barbecue and toast a marshmallow. . . .

    But if you've completed the Three C's, chances are good that you won't bother. Because by then you'll be surrounded by friends who now recognize you as a valuable, sensitive guy. Your oven will be clean, your car vacuumed. In the same way you procrastinated on your taxes, you can procrastinate on your death. And, at least for the moment, your hair looks . . . really great.

    I always have the urge to punch anyone who describes suicide as cowardly, selfish, for pussies, etc.

    The best way I've heard it described as a long term solution to a short term problem. And that sounds really callous but for most people its the truth, their desire to kill themselves is sparked by a recent situation or problem they feel is worse then it actually is or will have longer term effects then it really will.

    I say this as someone who had to call a suicide hotline.

    Oh yeah, that's a perfectly fine way of describing it.

    It's just that the people who describe it as cowardly or selfish have absolutely no idea of context. I mean to the point that I assume the very concept of context does not exist in their mind for them to call it that.

    I've done it before, but that was out of anger at losing someone to suicide. You do stupid things when you're angry, say some hurtful things, though its not like he heard any of them.

    Maybe I am angry, I dunno... I just have no sympathy.

    A friend just killed himself with pills and Jameson two weeks ago... just completely out of the blue.

    Fuck.

    The thought occurs that one of the problems with modern society is that many of its members prefer to act based on their emotions rather than rational thought, even to the point of acting hostile to somebody attempting to explain why their emotions are wrong. This is in conjunction with other people quite aware of this fact and use it to get what they want.

    This leaves us with a quandry: Do we try to appeal to rational thought to promote proper debate, or make appeals to their emotions to steer them in the right direction?

    there's euthanasia, where people who are going to die no longer

    then there's suicide, which is often caused by a chemical imbalance or a cocktail of drugs or a lack of perspective causing you to (often) incorrectly assume that your life is not worth living at this moment, so it will never be worth living.

    the 15 year old that killed himself because he was bullied for being gay didn't have all the facts and was so unhappy he probably felt he would never be happy again.

    whereas suicide can seem like a good idea after enough drugs or enough depression. causes the doer to assume things will never get better

    Maybe I am angry, I dunno... I just have no sympathy.

    A friend just killed himself with pills and Jameson two weeks ago... just completely out of the blue.

    Fuck.

    It hurts, because as a friend you think "Well fuck I was there why didn't you call me you son of a bitch!" And then you turn it on yourself as you wonder what you could have done differently or what sign you missed. And then the anger just lingers longer then the remorse. I'd like to tell you it gets better, but honestly it never does, part of the reason I attack exercise with such fury is to work out the hate.

    Seriously, I just can't get beyond the "what the fuck?" part.

    If you need someone to talk to chanus, I'm sure someone stable will offer some kind of support.

    Suicide is definitely not the product of a rational mind.

    I remember when I was seriously suicidal being held off from it not by the thought of the pain I'd cause my family and friends, but my dog. I told myself "Well, I can explain myself in a note, my family and friends will eventually understand why I wanted to die, but my dog will just have no idea what happened, I can't do that to her."

    I only realized when I was sane again exactly how crazy that was.

    Also impossible, and it'd break down immediately. Still interesting. They've just got defects in their human herd traits.

    You should read This Alien Shore. There's an entire planet where the population is insane. It happened gradually enough that a rigid societal structure developed which places people in their best roles for their particular kind of disorder, among other things.

    Ooh, sounds interesting. Bookmark'd it for future readings!

    Ever do theater in high school?

    No, but I can see how they'd be fucked up people there.


    A potassium overdose is probably the least messy way of killing yourself and I'm fairly sure potassium isn't all too hard to come by either.

    I love how in the hospital I'm in I'm given an extraordinary amount of trust. I can go to any of the wards, speak to any of the patients (assuming I just make sure with one of the junior doctors/nurses that they're not in too terrible a condition to want to speak to anyone), and I'm allowed to observe pretty much any procedure in the hospital.

    Saw a couple of bronchoscopies on Monday, and a CT scan today. Also there are drugs absolutely everywhere that could super easily be nicked - not that I would, that'd be bad.

    I struggle with depression fairly regularly. The suicidal thoughts used to be fairly regular as well. I think part of why I never actually went through with it (speaking as someone who's been in a knife in-hand, tarp laid out, note written kind of situation) is because suicide is not rational and I think too much to do anything I'm not 100% convinced of, I think too much to take that final step over the ledge.
