7 thoughts on “Life is but a Dream

  1. There is an interesting dilemma here. The concensus seems to be that suicide is always wrong, any life is better than no life, family and friends are more important than self. But having lived in severe pain for the last 5 years and having done all the medical, psychological and drug related routes, I long for an exit. In fact when the pain team ask me for my goals I have only one, and they don’t like it. At the end of the day the life is the life of one individual and nobody has the right to force that individual to live in circumstances that individual finds too hard to endure. That said there is a responsibility for the individual to minimise the impact on others and that means discussing plans openly and honestly with them.

    1. Hi John, thanks for your comments I really appreciated that you took the time to write. I can’t begin to understand how you feel and I don’t want to diminish your feelings by saying that I do. If I can say one thing though is that from your response I sense two things. 1) you have a good grip on this and you could help many others who are facing this through your own experience. 2) you write very well, it might help you to write about your experiences. I know that in writing this Blog I have come to grips with many issues that years of therapy could not cure. I hope you give yourself a chance to have an impact, maybe that is the lifeline you need.

      1. John, I might be very naive but I grew up with a belief that if I take my life today with my luck, tomorrow would be the day that everything works out. I just strongly believe we have a purpose and it isn’t to make huge strides in life but rather to impact and help others. I hope you stick it out, personally I think the world needs you and you need to find your place in it. If we are to believe religions that talk about reincarnation the sad fact might mean you are back here with a worst fate next time around. I don’t mean to sound offensive in any way and I hope you can sense from my messages that I am truly wanting to help.
