I chose to title this thread with self-controlled exit rather than self-controlled suicide because the word suicide contains a powerful negative connotation that is sometimes deserved. It is deserved when a depressed person checks out, leaving their significant other and children not prepared.
But if a person is losing their mind because of you know what, or he or she is dieing of painful cancer that can not be fixed, then I think self-controlled exit makes sense, as it does when our pets are suffering in their final days.
