Everyone must make their own minds up about killing themselves but being the friend to two women whoes son or sons killed themselves I would never do that to my family. The guilt is beyond belief for those left behind and the sorrow is much worse for the family than the loss of a life lived to it's "normal" end. I once asked a friend why she had planned to kill herself and she said "I was just thinking of myself not those who would be left behind and how they would feel". She recognized what it would do to her family and did not go forward with her plans.
