i feel i have to make a post here to ask you all if you think that suicide is selfish? i know that alot of people probably think that to commit suicide is selfish...but do yous not understand it is severe depression, a mental illness that leads to suicide? this has really annoyed me because i was extremely suicidal for 5 months. i was put under a mental health section because i wouldnt agree to help as i didnt feel i was worth ANY help and i didnt want to bother anyone. At the time i thought asking for help would have been selfish of me. i also didnt feel i was worth even a second of anyone's time, this is how low i was. i thought that by me dying i would then be out of the way of everyone's life and that i had never deserved a life in the 1st place. that was all mayjor depression that made me think that way...so was i being selfish? or was i mentally ill? i don't want to be classed as a selfish person when i've never been intentionally selfish in my life! i'm not saying that suicide is right, not at all. i'm just trying to let people see that its mayjor depression that leads to suicide, and being selfish has absolutely nothing to do with it.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
