It is not a diagnosis but a general description of what happens when a person collapses from stress.

It’s also perceived to be polite way to describe a mental health decompensation or drug addiction relapse that requires inpatient treatment. Hopefully we stop calling it “exhaustion” in the future because it only fuels the stigma of seeking mental health or addiction services.

I’m an atheist but I believe in preserving life. That doesn’t mean I would force that philosophical belief on someone else though. People should have the right to live or to die.

The atheist perspective tells me that there isn’t evidence that we continue to experience anything after death. We stop existing. So, we can’t experience relief from suffering. However, in life, there exists the possibility of relief or pleasure or cure in some cases.

I suffer from cluster headaches. Some people call them “suicide headaches” because they make want to die. I know what extreme suffering is.

Are you sure you aren’t having a psychotic break? I looked at your profile and saw that you take recreational psychedelic drugs.

Not judging, it’s fine with me, but don’t expect other people to believe your delusions.

Also, you said in another post that your girlfriend is at the bottom of her payscale. Doesn’t sound like she’s the lead of anything. You’re contradicting yourself a lot.

I spent a week there and it was the most terrifying experience. There was a woman who was covered in feces because the staff didn’t want to change her soiled diapers. There were roaches. The sinks didn’t drain so it was impossible to wash your hands or brush your teeth. The phone was broken. There was a constant threat of violence and two people were taken to jail. One young man had a seizure during a meal and choked and the staff did nothing. He turned grey. The staff was verbally abusive. I had pneumonia and nephritis from my time in the icu where I also acquired bed sores. There was no way to keep clean and no medical care.

There was one woman who had a crappy British accent after a stroke and she even changed the word “dress” to “frock.” So it’s more complicated than just having pronunciation that sounds similar. The brain is attempting to copy a foreign accent.
