Why do doctors try to talk a person out of suicide? It's the life of that person so doesn't he have a choice to not live anymore?

Wanting to Die: That is a very good question but one that has a very good answer as well. Wanting to die is a temporary problem that has a solution whereas death has no solution. The pain and loneliness that wanting to die represents also extends to loved ones, friends and acquaintances. As one who has been there myself I can promise you one thing: you do not have to feel this bad and there can be a solution.

Given the hundred other questions you have asked of us this week it surely appears that your life is in transition. That is exciting and challenging and probably overwhelming. Be gentle with yourself. It is okay to have roller coaster emotions. Life gets better. You have gotten very good advice here on health tap. Go get a good gay medical provider and go get some life experience. Ask 4 help.

See your doc: Acupuncture is still considered "alternative medicine" and should not substitute for a visit to your regular physician.
