I've had a suicide note for about 8 months now, and have not edited much. While thinking about what I would add/change to it, I thought it was pointless. Is anyone reading the note really going to understand what I've gone through? Life, in the all-inclusive sense, and suicide are individual experiences that no one else can comprehend. Would a note make it easier for my family to understand? Would it let those around me see what was burried deep in my mind? I doubt it. * off topic: how does one approach someone about suicide assistance? I mean I just want someone to make sure that I die and not end up brain dead. What does one look for in such an individual?
