As the war turned against the Nazis it became evident even to the arrogant Hitler that they were about to lose. He probably couldn't face the shame of what he had done and what would obviously have come out during the war trials.

Plus there seems to be some suggestion that Hitler had picked up syphilis from his girlfriend Eva Braun. Syphilis left untreated results in paresis which causes CNS problems, including paranoia and depression.

Why exactly do people commit suicide?

It's because people are sad, or depressed, or believe they have a horrible life. In fact they don't think that life has any good meaning; that is why. A: 2 There are many reasons why people commit suicide. Some people commit suicide when they feel that they have been hurt so deeply that only death can release them from the unbearable pain. Some do it as an act of revenge against someone they love, who has hurt them very deeply. Some do it because they prefer to die than face up to disgrace or humiliation. Generally people commit suicide as a means of release from some type of agonizing physical or emotional distress or pain. Answer also: This information was taken from the 10/22/01 Awake Magazine on Jehovah's Witnesses official website: Many of those who take their life do not want to die as much as they want "to end whatever is going on," stated one psychology professor. The wording so commonly found in suicide notes suggests as much. Such phrases as 'I could not take it any longer' or 'Why go on living?' show a deep desire to escape life's harsh realities. Although the reasons why people commit suicide vary, certain events in life commonly trigger suicide. Triggering events: It is not uncommon for young ones who give in to despair and commit suicide to do so even over matters that may seem trivial to others. When they feel hurt and cannot do anything about it, they may view death as a means of getting back at those who hurt them. A recent survey in Britain indicated that when children are subjected to severe bullying, they are nearly seven times as likely to attempt suicide. Others may take their life when they get into trouble at school or with the law, suffer the end of a romance, get a bad report card, experience stress over exams or become weighed down by worries about the future. For adults financial or work-related problems, debt, business failures, poverty and unemployment are common triggering events. Retirement and physical illness are also major contributing factors, especially among the elderly. Often suicide is chosen as a way out, not necessarily when an illness is terminal, but when the patient views the suffering as intolerable.
