I won't get into the religious aspect of your question because, I [like everyone else on here] really don't know for sure what God would have in store for a person who commits suicide.
I will say this though; By asking your question, you've taken the first step toward recovering from these thoughts. Talking about suicide is a cry for help, regardless if you want to admit it or not. There is
help for you, but you have to make an honest attempt to get it.
People in similar situations as yours, often find out that they have only been drowning themselves in self pity, often stemming from something that has has happened in their life that was bad or traumatic. You certainly qualify there.
Others may find that they have severe depression caused from a chemical imbalance. And that can be fixed with the right meds.
Either way, you have to come to terms with this "sickness" (and yes, it is a sickness, that can be fixed) and get passed it. As stated, you probably have no idea of what hardship you would cause loved ones to endure if you were to "make the wrong decision".
Remember the pain you felt when your g/f suffered, then died from her sickness? Then think about how she feels seeing you contemplating throwing away (with total disregard) what she had taken from her.
Any time I feel like things are getting unbearable, I look at someone who has it worse and usually find myself wanting to kick my self in the ass.
Seek help my friend. Simply talking to someone can change your life forever - literally!
Remember, the one thing the Dead know to be most true... "It's better to be alive!"
Good luck man!
