I feel this way all the time! It seems like suicide is okay for me, but I wouldn't want anyone else to do it. I mean, I feel like I have NOTHING to lose, but if a friend told me THEY had NOTHING to lose, I'd say, "Ah, your thinking's just distorted. You've really got NOTHING?" and talk them into a less constricted way of thinking.

I'm not sure yet, but I think my mind is starting to go, too. I can't remember little things, when my memory used to a so good it was like a parlor trick. Just yesterday I was telling a friend a sotry, and trying to remember which friend of mine had told it to me/who it had happened to (and there ain't that many to pick from!) In the end I realized that I'd read it somewhere. Now (and later in the day yesterday) I can't even rememeber what the STORY was. This is unusual for me.
I also have trouble finding words, how I get if I haven't talked to anyone for a few days. Trouble is, that's not that case this time. Hmm.

I totally agree. I know a guy at work who, when he's down, or just in a bad mood, he gets NASTY. But that's okay. People are just afraid of him and leave him alone. If it were a woman, though? Everyone would say, "What a bitch!"
