I dont think so..
It definitely gives pain to a lot of people but I dont think its the same pain that the one the person that killed herself for.2

Attempted it twice a few years back, landed me in the ICU unresponsive for 3 days. then another three in the loony house.
Anyways, I would have to say that this question could be true under some circumstances. But your referring to an equivalent transfer of pain and that is just not the case. First consider that its not just that a dudes dog died and he just can't stand it. It's far deeper and darker than that my friend. For the clinically depressed person there is something inside that is broken. For years they were claiming Low Seratonin levels caused it, but that has been disproven awhile ago. Currently they still dont know why the clinically depressed dont get better over time as most do. Mine is ongoing been that way since feb 2013.
Imagine that you have two metal railroad spikes driven deep into your chest cavity. After a while your body will release enough endorphins into your system to lower the pain levels but only so far. So know you have this burning permeating ache penetrating both lungs, radiating to the spine but bypassing the vertebrae (cause bone pain we can handle) and instead infiltrating the nervous system. This will send the same constant burning permeating ache throughout the body now. Somewhere along you will try to breathe, but each breath sets the fire anew. NOW we are at clinically depressed.
Now for those lucky individuals, some dumb ass comes along and says, "dont worry time heals all wounds". So you keep telling yourself this every minute of every hour of every day for three years. Nope still there.
So the question indicates that an individual that manages to end their pain and escape it transfers it to another person. Well based on the science that person will actually get better over time. How long, three months, six, hell lets say 12. Though by the time you get to that 12 months, it is no longer depression, anger, self loathing, or even hate that the deceased had. No this person frowns, cracks a few tears when they think of the deceased, maybe a birthday or memorial day.
So no LOL an equivalent measure of pain is not transferable.1
