As someone who struggled with severe suicidal ideation, depression, anxiety, stress, self-hatred, and a myriad of other mental health issues. I wanted assisted suicide by 18, I struggled with my will to live, being stronger than the hell scape that was my life; forcing me to try to kill myself… I despised my life, and was ashamed; at how I was too weak to just kill myself. I over the course of 10 years, wasted at least one hundred thousand dollars, of the healthcare systems money and hundreds of hours from doctors, nurses, psychologists and psychiatrists… It could have been devoted to people who needed life saving care. If this change for the policy passes. I would have qualified for assisted suicide. At 34, I have no more depression, suicidal ideation, severe stress or anxiety. I counsel those who are struggling with suicidal depression. I can and have helped those with PTSD and C-PTSD, as I’ve walk these roads. I have a career as a miner, give to charity, and am trying to repay all the kindness and love I was shown, through my 2 decades of hell. Forcing doctors to do the logical thing, and remove an eyesore from society; may be logical… But we as Albertans, should not fall to hopeless sociopathic ideologies. We should look for that straight and narrow path, that leads to an ever brighter future.
