If you took the drug in an attempt to end your life, you would probably be turned down for any kind of transplant. You have to have a solid mindset in order to be considered because to the things you will have to face after transplantation.

Sorry to say, but when a person goes through the transplant process they are evaluated both physically AND mentally. If you are suicidal, most transplant teams will not just hand you a transplanted organ. The mental stress you go through can be massive and you ARE evaluated for your ability to handle that stress. People who try to end their life aren't exactly top of the list material; they don't care enough about their life to begin with so going through the stress of a transplant surgery alone can do them in. They may never leave the operating room alive. Transplants are just too hard to get forthose who WANT to live; why waste organs on those who do not want to live in the first place. These words may seem harsh, but they are the reality of the situation. You yourself, obviously have not had to deal with a transplant team; if you had, you would know this fact.
