Hmmm intresting, I made a AMA as a surviver of abuse but it wasn't allowed on this forum and deleted.
I was five when all it started, I am now 28 it never gets easy. Ever!!!!!
However to take that route I'm sure it was pretty extreme and mentally damaging, not that my abuse wasn't.
People cope differently I am never going to judge a person who takes this route, I've nearly gone through it myself hell my brother committed suicide November just gone. Different circumstances.
People should have the right to do as they please.

OM MANI PADME HUNG. Very sad. I pray for her.
PTSD is no joke. It is hell. You relive your traumas day and night. It sucks. But there is hope, if only people would have a little more compassion and get out to vote and change marijuana laws.
I wonder if she tried medical cannibis. It saves lives -- especially PTSD sufferers'.
I understand what you are saying. I briefly mentioned to my doctor suicidal thoughts and she told me if I am having them, she might have to put me in the hospital... this would be to protect me.

First we allowed hospice to drug us into a coma until we die from dehydration, to ease our suffering.
Then we allowed assisted suicide, for any reason you can pay an MD to sign off on, to ease our suffering.
It has been coming for awhile now, but how much longer until the MD tells you when it is time for him to ease your suffering.
