I was talking a few people on here the other night, and it set me thinking that maybe I could make a massive difference when my time is up…
At the moment suicide has a negative stigma attached to it, with the stereotype of the highly emotional, desperate victim making a final call for help. This may also be why it affects so many friends and relatives as they feel guilty they missed this cry for help before it was too late. Lets look at the other other side, the rational unemotional decision that you should be able to control at least one thing in your life.
I know in my own case, I have come to a logical unemotional decision after much thought. Partly because I do not see myself as part of this world, and partly because I do not take any enjoyment from it. I will finish Uni with massive debt caused by the government, who will then take massive chunks of what I earn and spend. And the more I earn the more they will take… Oh and off course that money they take will be used to give money to those that can’t be fucked to work. Oooo and then they want me to carry on doing this until I am 70? And the country is in stupid debt so the government is going take more and more money??? Ok, yes I will bend over and let you rape me for all I got ‘cuz otherwise you will send your police after me.
Fuck that people, I am so outta here, I can’t be part of that society… Anyways, back to my ideas. I was thinking maybe its time that someone actually spoke out about suicide, I plan to make a “video suicide note” before I go and upload it to youtube (yay!). I was thinking it was about time that someone spoke out and ask for the changes. Here are my current thoughts:
1. The stigma attached as discussed about
2. That you have to declare any mental health problems on job applications etc so if you seek help you risk your future careers/insurance/loans etc
3. That people can’t talk about something they don’t understand… maybe it should be added to the national curriculum as a communication thingy. So basically everyone learns the basics of being able to listen to someone and empathsise with them
4. That maybe suicide/an end should be avaliable by doctors certification/prescription to ensure that a) it is not botched b) painless. This would be for those making a logical rational decision.
What do you guys think?
