They say it’s painless

A brave man once requested me
To answer questions that are key
Is it to be or not to be
And I replied, “Oh why ask me?”

    I, for one, and Tam, for another, would miss you greatly. For whatever it’s worth.

    Here’s the thing, and you already know this intellectually: suicide sucks for the survivors.

    And it sucks even more, if they have to find you killed “messily” with knives or some such. I will admit that suicide CAN be a rational decision. But in those cases, planning is involved. Care is taken to be sure that a reasonably civilized method is used , and that family members can be reached, and that someone knows why it was done, and what you want done with your stuff, etc.

    Yeah, a fat lot of trouble, and maybe that’s a good thing.
