5.0 out of 5 stars Readers need to remember one thing:, April 16, 2001
This review is from: FINAL EXIT (Paperback)
This is not a book telling you to commit suicide. So many people felt lives would not have been lost without this book. This is wrong. A suicidal person will always find a way. This is a book that is intended to help the terminally ill who need an easy passing. Try to imagine yourself, suffering, in unbearable agony, your own suffering making all of your loved ones hearts break a little daily, no end in sight, just the knowledge that if you sleep at all, when you wake, the agony will continue, not just for you but for everyone. Often, too often, doctors will limit and provide dosages of pain relief that are inadequate, because there are times when the pain is untouchable by modern drugs. Ask yourself: Will your loved ones suffer more after your death than they are now? THAT, dear readers, is what this book means. It offers a glimmer of light for the terminally ill. That is all. It does not in any way intend itself for depressed people, but depressed people will buy it, and read it, and perhaps follow it to the end. They suffer too, their pain is as real as the physical pain of a terminally ill patient, do not expect the book ever to be banned to depressed or mentally ill patients only. I respect any terminally ill patient's decision to use the guidelines in this book to assist in an end that will allow them to finally erase the agony, the physical torture, the lives wreaked with havoc and pain because of their illnesses. Those of you who do not understand Derek Humphrey's motive should read this book again. Those of you who do not understand your relative or loved one's decision to act on the guidelines in this book need to make peace with yourselves, and put the blame where it really belongs, nowhere.

Well said. In the words of William Blake:

To Mercy Pity Peace and Love all pray in their distress and to these virtues of delight return their thankfulness.

This book is a mission of mercy.

I would concur with both comments below. I, personally, speaking as one who's suffered from severe major depression all of my life cannot explain to anyone what this disease is like; i've found the only ones who are able to truly understand and grasp what I feel, are the ones who personally identify and deal with the same disease, or one similar. Thus their ability to relate. Everyone suffers from depression at some point in their life, but there's a drastic difference between that, and actually being diagnosed, and dealing with, the terrible, debilitating disease of major severe depression(also known as MDD) or one's similar. Not including individuals who deal with other mental illnesses on top of MDD - my heart goes out to them.

If one chooses to end their life, their suffering - it's just that; to be in PEACE. It's not anyone's fault, not the family or person with the illness, the blame is nowhere.

I really enjoyed what you said. Thank you.

The pain of depression is as real and incapacitating as any physical pain. I fault no one for choosing to end their life.

I read recently (in NY Times?) that as of Jan 1, 2013, if you go to a hospital for treatment (anything except pain, I guess), the hospital is now mandated to treat both your "illness" and the pain related to it. No more people writhing around in pain, e.g., after surgery, while doc shakes his head and says, "Sorry, that is all I can give you or I'll get in trouble." I hope this info helps you or someone else.
