> Shirley: Would you ever encourage SOMEONE ELSE to commit suicide?

No. If I am to believe what I've been told (and read), suicidal tendancies are a symptom of mental illness. Evidently, it can be treated. I'm not sure why you asked, though. I hope you don't think that I am advocating or in some way glorifying suicide; I am not.

> Also, do you think anyone other than yourself is "worthless"? I've found that while I think I'm stupid & worthless, I'm a hell of a lot easier on everyone else on the planet!

Well....the short answer is that yes--I do think of lots of people as worthless: violent criminals, and other cruel types. But I don't compare my "worthlessness" in a global sense. I usually feel worthless within my own social setting (work, family, etc.). That's prob. more of a self-esteem issue, though. I can't explain it; I just get confused sorting it out. All I know is I always carry with me this feeling of impending doom. I think that eventually this thing will beat me. It feels beyond my control. Of course I don't wish this for others to go through.

You mean you never even think of your boss as worthless??? My boss makes us come up with little "wishes" for our office wish book. Funny thing is the only suggestions good enough to go in the wish book are HERS. She means well, though. We wished for new office carpet and a retreat in Hawaii.
