Why the double standard?

Most people seem to think that it's perfectly ok for someone who is terminally ill to speed up the dying process. 

Many of those same people do not feel that suicide is a viable option for anyone else. 

Does depression not hurt as bad as cancer? 

Is alcoholism not as valid as alzheimers?


I think all people should have the right to die as they see fit.  We let people choose their direction in life, so why not let them choose their death? 

Suicide is not selfish, undignified, nor stupid.  It is another option for those who are in constant pain.

Mental illness is not a terminal illness. There is a difference between something being terminal and something being chronic.

Really?  So, what's the cure for bipolar disorder?  Or PTSD?  Or schizophrenia?  Or.....or....or.....

I don't feel like an addiction like alcoholism can be compared  to terminal cancer.  They are just not the same.

I don't agree with it if it's over a small and stupid reason....an ex friend of mine wants to commit (or complains about it) just because ALL the boys don't call her...in that case? It just pisses me off.
