The Slow Road to Suicide

I have a confession to make. I think I may be on the slow road to suicide. Now, before you call the mental health professionals in white coats to come and take me to a padded room somewhere, hear me out. 

Each morning, along with my shower, shave, breakfast, and other morning routine things, I take my daily laundry list of medications to help relief the various medical ailments that come with aging. I won't go into a list of them all, or what they are treating, but suffice it to say that there are several. These medications are prescribed to prolong my life by keeping certain medical conditions at bay; medical conditions that, over a long period of time, could result in my untimely death if they are left unchecked. It is a fairly common situation for many people as they grow older. Dictionary.com defines suicide as "the intentional taking of one's life". Based on that definition, you could surmise that if I were to stop taking my medications, I would be, in a nutshell, committing suicide. It would be a slow road to suicide, but it would be suicide none the less.
