From CNN Intern Sachin Seth:
Rather than burden their children with the daunting task of caring for them as they age, some baby boomers may be considering an extreme form of "relief." Suicide.
Psychiatrist Mark Goulston says he's been approached by some middle-aged patients who say they'd rather "take a bottle of pills" than inconvenience their children.
Dr. Goulston blames the problem on the impatient nature of "millennials" - the offspring of baby boomers - a trait he says was passed down from the boomers themselves.
Adding to their angst is their own experience of taking care of elderly parents, which sometimes leads to feelings of resentment. Baby boomers don't want their own children to grow to resent and begrudge them when they get old and feeble.
Dr. Goulston joined Don Lemon in the CNN Newsroom Saturday to talk about the issue.
