A few years ago right after J.T. Ready "killed himself" there was a topic here where we pretty much all chimed in saying that we would never kill ourself and if anyone ever says that we did, it will be a lie. I looked and looked for that topic here on the forum, but couldn't find it. Although, I seem to recall Breacher stating that he too would never kill himself, no matter how bad life may ever get for him.

I think this is a good time for all of us to once again post here and certify (or re-certify) that you will not commit suicide. Of course, you are free to not reply to this post. I'll kick this off. Here we go.

Hi, my name is Sergeant Bloodloss, A.KA. SBL, and I would never commit suicide. I personally think suicide is cowardly and selfish. If anybody ever claims that I killed myself (either on purpose or by accident), they are lying; I was murdered.

Okay, who's next?

I won't say there are no circumstances where I would commit suicide, but they are all pretty unlikely. Suffice it to say, unless I'm dying of an awful, incurable, and painful disease, don't trust anyone who says it was suicide.

Onward and upward,

On a few occasions I've wondered how bad it would have to be for me to go that route. Maybe I just don't have the imagination.

I also thought about "what if I mess up?". Then I'd have an even bigger mess to live with...

I think I'd have to be so damaged that I probably wouldn't have the ability left to do it...

Maybe I'm just a pussy, but I'd rather "nut-up" and tough it out. Your "awful, incurable pain" would be an exception, but short of that "the easy way" would just be too hard for me, if that makes any sense.

As a Pastor I have also worked in hospice care, my first client was another ex-Pastor who was a Marine Vietnam Veteran in the last stages of liver failure.
The doctors only gave him three weeks or so left to live, I kept him going for five months before he finally chose to give up.

None of the doctors or other healthcare professionals could explain it and were baffled, they had never seen something like that before.

I took him to the toilet, cleaned him, bathed , dressed , exercised and helped feed him every day, three times a day. We became the best of friends and even though he had turned his back on G-d before he became ill, he rededicated himself to Father just moments before he died in my arms, with me holding him so close that I felt his last breath on my face.
When I first met him he had asked me to promise him only one thing, that I wouldn't let him die alone.
I kept that promise.

It was then that I also promised myself something. To never make someone else go through something similar with me.

When that time comes .........

Yeah, you explained it much better than I.
When my body or mind have irrevocably failed, let me out.

Otherwise, if they even *hint* at "self inflicted", they're hiding something.

WHEREAS:

1. I love my life;

2. I love my woman, my parents, my family, my friends;

3. I have no reason to end my life, whether for pain or for suffering;

4. I love my career, my work, my labors; and

5. I want to have children.


BE IT RESOLVED:

I, The Answer, will never commit suicide. And thus, if you hear of anything contrary, it is wrong and I was murdered.

There's only one reason I would waste myself and it would be confirmed by multiple other people...if anything is mysterious about it then I didn't do it.

If they say I committed suicide, then I was "suicided".

Understand being busy. I'm up to my eyeballs around the homestead trying to put back a lot of food etc. for the hard times that are near at hand.

I've been working on physical fitness mainly...have been mountain biking a lot lately...helluva fun way to get in shape. Been a while since I've been shooting or rucking though, need to do more of that soon.

ETA: I did build a badass DMR style AR15 though...that was fun. Damn good shooter, got an ACOG ECOS on it, canted red dot sight, top of the line Harris bipod, free float fluted barrel with M Lok rails, QD sling, etc. Good times.

I've been busier than a one-legged man in an ass kicking contest, and I feel like a double amputee.

I'm getting ready for retirement even though it's a few years away.

Trying to get the house paid for before the big day. Got a 30-year mortgage that we will be paying off in 15 years. Currently making triple and quadruple payments.

A 200-mile daily work commute doesn't make it any easier.
