Why suicide indeed. What drives a person to that thought? What suffering makes one want to end it that way?
The reason most people can't understand the 'why' part is because it's something unique. It really amounts to you not being able to handle whatever has come to rest on you. You see no way out - and you desperately want a way out. If the pain is too much to bear; if the solutions prescribed by professionals do not provide relief, then suicide is the ultimate way of telling yourself that you do have some measure of control. You are the one who can throw the switch.
When I reached the point of thinking that taking my own life was the only way out, it was because i thought I had exhausted all the alternatives and the only one left was suicide. I worried les about what others might think than about escaping the pain tht weighed me down.
It's amazing how one person, or one med., can change your perspective.
