I was asked to post this here, anonymously, for someone else: Is suicide/euthanasia selfish? I'm terminally ill, cancer, and have around a month to live they say, but that could mean 3 days or 3 months, you never know until you're dead. the thing is though every day is pretty awful. just moving around is a chore and most of my day is spent in bed, either sleeping or half-way sleeping or just waching tv and movies or somethhing. i take morphine for pain but its not enough really. i still have a moderate amount of pain and its not just pain that makes the living hard, its the tiredness and unable to walk anywhere without it being a struggle. cant drive anywhere and rarely go outside. so basically its a waiting game i guess. is it selfish of me to want to just be over already? whenever suicide is discussed people say its a cop-out for pussies and just inflicts pain on others. thats my main concern, when i die i dont want others to be sad. i want people to be ahppy and just like enjoy life and be happy for me that i lived to be even this old. i want to ask my doctor about it and if he can help me with it but im scared of death and dont want people to remember me as killing myself.
