I had prepared dragees for my new birth, but the first time I saw myself in the mirror, I felt disgusted by my new body. I still had breast and my penis was a fail. I had some happy moments, but finally it became unbearable. I have lived 44 years and it's 44 years too many.
When I saw Nancy for the first time, it broke my dream. She was so ugly. I gave birth to a monster, a ghost. I feel no pain and no remorse. For me, this chapter is over, I don't care about her death. I feel no pain, no doubt, no remorse. She was never part of our family, thus in cannot be broken.
Physician assisted suicide for any adult for any reason they deem it necessary.
Two little words....'hypocratic' and 'oath'.
Or should we give the right to suicide to anyone ?

Not trying to be rude, but it's Hippocratic oath. DENY IGNORANCE. My apologies.edit on 2-10-2013 by devildogUSMC because: (no reason given)
Anyone should be able to take their life at any time. I view it as the divine right of that person to decide when to exit. No one should interfere with that choice and no one has the right to interfere because of their own warped beliefs.
Surely it's only people incapable of seeing themselves off who qualify for assisted suicide?
If you can physically do it yourself you should do so, no?
So, you see no reason to have any restrictions on this?
Suicide is a very permanent solution to a temporary problem.

Ever been mentally or terminally ill? If not, then you speak from a position of ignorance.
The question for me is, again : how can we estimate 'psychological distress' ?
