    Long story short, I cut myself really badly, to the point I lose half a pint to a pint of blood everyday and, as a result, I am incredibly anaemic.

    My blood level is 4.1 (the minimum it should be is 11.5, and they offer blood transfusions from 8 downwards).

    I am facing death if I do nothing. something I really really want, so much.

    But people around me are pressuring me to do what is necessary to get better. But I don't want to, I don't want to live.

    What should I do?

    Give into the pressure and fulfil a habit of a lifetime by doing what people want? Or stand up and do what I want?

    I know no one can ask that, but I just don't know anymore

    The best advice I can give is go with your gut instinct. Deep down, you know whether you want to live or die. People put pressure on you to live, but if that's not what you want to do, you'll know. However, before you make a final solution, make sure you think long and hard about your potential to succeed in the many categories of life; think about your loved ones and your potential to meet someone special and a future family; and always formualte a ratio of the positives you get out of life vs. the negatives and obstacles that you'll face. Some people say if there is one glimmer of light you can give to the world, you should live to your life completely. I don't agree with this for various reasons, but only you can think most objectively about your past, present, and future. Once you put all these thoughts together, you're final decision will be more logical and reasonable. I'm not encouraging or discouraging suicide because I can't decide for you and this would be true even if I knew you.

    Thank you so much for such a balanced, rational and helpful reply.

    I don't have much to say in response to it, but I will be thinking very carefully about each and every one of those points.

    Thank you very much
