Thats the kind of thing I don't understand. While some people say suicide is selfish, I don't think the act of suicide is intrinsically selfish. When people act in a way like this however, (making others feel bad so that you can feel better) to get attention, its pretty selfish.

Its putting your needs above everybody else. Sure, I know, the squeaky wheel gets the grease, but there are plenty of severely depressed patients that suffer. Doctors are going to give you the best treatment they can (hopefully) anyway. I don't know of any additional extra special measures they can implement for those have established themselves as "really sick".

Its not as if the doctor is going to pull out some magic, top secret treatment, that only the "really sick" patients get. "Now that you've attempted suicide, I can see that you are sick enough to warrant proclonifaxoft. I was just giving you placebos before, this one works every time.

Is it extra attention from family and friends; is it needed time off work? I don't get it. These things are available anyway. I think its necessary to build the kind of relationships that will last beyond the emergency efforts.

Its like the "balloon boy" incident. Sure, he got his 15 days of fame, now what?
