Not yet, no. I hope for the day that I will,
thats what keeps me going. In my case I believe the act would be selfish. I've actually discussed it with my family, asked permission really to be 'let out' I told them I felt I was sucking the life out of them and couldn't live up to their expectations ever. Its been made clear to me that I would be being selfish.
However, I don't subscribe to the idea that its *always* selfish. I also see where one would really believe that they are too great a burden on friends and family and have nothing to offer, that suicide is a gift to the family. Severe depression is delusional that way.

If I lived without reprieve from my deepest anguish, and I can only imagine that some people must, then I can't help but think its selfish to expect everyone to survive it. In my mind Pain is only tolerable when you can see an end to it.
