This is a topic that has many variables, potential exceptions and opinions.
I agree.. and i want to say thanks everyone who posted their views opinions ect.
I think the general consensous here is that either: (a) a person who is suffering from a terminal illness can in some cases can make a rational decision to suicide.. or (b) if a person (not terminally ill) makes a decision to suicide based on info (or personal circumstance) available at the time, to that person a rational decision.. then they must have been depressed and therefore the decision was\is irrational.

maybe because there are so many variables ect..ect..I know i could ask more questions or more opinions.. but for now i will hold my own counsel. (if that's the correct phrase?)
So i'm gonna watch this space for now and maybe learn from what others think and say on this.


(just in case anyone thinks i'm pro-suicide.. I'm not)

If that were the case, then the suicide rate would be at least three times what it is now. Depression, even chronic, recurrent depression, is not a lifetime event.

I stand corrected.
