I completely agree! Getting access help for mental illness is so hard and expensive. It’s idiotic that instead of making it more accessible they’d rather blame the SNDon't these people know blaming the method only sets mental health back? Instead of addressing the real problems behind why people take their lives, we focus on the methods they used and this approach does absolutely nothing but make the lives of those suffering more difficult. It's so infuriating, especially when you're one of the people suffering from mental illness. I can't even afford to see a therapist regularly and when I caved and took their medication, it destroyed me even further. I've done the diet and lifestyle changes thing. So what else am I supposed to do?
I would think someone would have the compassion to realize if someone takes their life that is because they couldn't stand life and were suffering. If we can euthanize our pets we should be understanding enough to realize people too need to be euthanized when suffering is unbearable and ongoing.
It's been super hard to get SN in the UK since mid/end of 2020... I hate when articles make out like it was "easy" to buy, and how things need "legislation", when all we want is just peace in our final moments
I really wish I had just bought it when it was cheaper and I had some money left on a card. Now I'm scared of it being taken down. Fuck. This is ridiculous, and doesn't solve anything.
Why is that? If somehow people could be educated to see it's no different with people we might get somewhere.people's instincts regarding the euthanasia of pets are a lot more on the right track as well as their compassion towards them seems to work in a more humane way, paradoxically.
I got mine off eBay for around a five from PolandExactly, if he'd received the support he needed earlier he wouldn't have to take the final step. If it wasn't SN then he would have possibly found another method. The usual misplaced, hysterical hand wringing.
Wish I could get hold of SN for £3.49
Yeah, Amazon was where I was referring to, didn't know if I should say or not lol. (I'm in the US if that matters.) It's risen in price and I'm seeing more reviews regarding suicides, so it makes me nervous. I don't make any money so I don't know how I'd get it in the near future. Just hate to potentially lose it as an otherwise easily accessible option.Is it banned in the UK or are there any restrictions regarding purchases by individuals? If I remember correctly, not long ago people were even getting it from Amazon? If it's legal there shouldn't be any problems to have it imported from other European country? Also local companies should be selling it to individuals because why not, people cure their meats etc. In central/eastern Europe it's going 2-3GBP for 500g and 99% purity.
I immediately thought of innovatory train breaks which allow trains to stop very fast, to degrease the occurrence of train suicides. I can imagine a situation where the train stops so fast that people inside are thrown to the ground, two of them get killed on spot and ten recieve serious injuries, from which one dies in the hospital.They should ban trains and cliffs, those are also suicide methods.
More people are progressive towards the legalization of euthanasia for old and terminally ill, than, let's say, for those diagnosed with mental illness, or for young people, or for everyone. Because of that, focusing on the right to die for old and terminally ill is a good first move to increase the chances for euthanasia campaign to succeed.From my experience, in order to be able to empathize with those reaching their threshold of suffering in life, one has to have been there, felt it, contemplated ways out etc. Otherwise it seems to be a level of empathy completely unreachable by most people who don't have any first hand experience with worst aspects of human condition. This would explain why otherwise smart, educated and reasonable people, when met with the subject of suicide, suddenly go into some kind of autopilot mode and just start spewing the most cliched quotes which are out of touch with reality, like: "It's a permanent solution to a temporary problem", "Please, don't do it", "People love you", "Don't be selfish", "You will create more suffering" etc. Of course there must be exceptions to that but I've yet to meet one. Also I feel that people's instincts regarding the euthanasia of pets are a lot more on the right track as well as their compassion towards them seems to work in a more humane way, paradoxically.
