In brief: Not very, but...

Insulin shock was once a psych treatment that patients described as heavenly; muff your attempt & it's brain damage.
If you are considering suicide, please talk with a few wise people first. Since i enjoy good health, I have no right to preach, but if the vast majority of people who have considered taking their lives, even if they are moderately disabled, have been glad afterwards that they failed.
