Many years ago I had some one close to me commit suicide. Hind sight being 20/20, I could see how their actions were the end result of a long chain of self-destructive behavior.
Has anyone known some one close that committed suicide?
How did it affect you personally?
i have known someone close to me commit suicide..and as its a personal view i have strong views on it...i cant obviously comment on all victims or shld i say possible victims..
i know many ppl who try it,get hospitalised and survive..i think depending on what their methos was you can determine if they were serius about it..
i agree that if someone takes 5 tablets and tells someone..its a cry for help.
i believe that many ppl at some point will find themselfs or know someone who has at least contemplated this.
i believe each method can indicate their intention..i know ppl who have had members of their family hang themselfs..this to me doesnt fail very often..so wld view this as intentional death
drug overdoses im not so sure about.as you cld say that although they took them themselfs..were they in the right frame of mind in what they were doing and how much thry were taking?
pills,if a large amount of pills were taken..you can believe they were meant to kill themselfs.
lacerated wrists or throat..can be achieved but ppl make the daft mistake of cutting across a wrist wheras accross can be more damaging in prone to cause death than the other
gassings..i wld say was intentional as rare amount of ppl survive this,so unless found within minutes you will die
in the cases where death was meant to be..i dont see this as selfish at all........ppl with this frame of mind are thinking of themselfs and getting them out of the situation they are in..how do you know they dont think about their families there leavibg behind..they prob do to some extent..but this wldnt alter their decision.thats why ppl leave suicide notes..have you ever read one?.not nice often they are personal and explain why they are doing this,and to leave lil messages to loved one..totally heartbreaking..
the story im about to tell you is as follows.......
a woman aged 18 found herself with two young kids..she didnt have a prtner although married.hed done off whist pregnant..she was left alone and found she couldnt cope ..she got involved in illegal stuff,and had her kids taken into care...well infact one of the kids was looked after by her mother and the other ended up in foster care........this woman drank heavily due to depression on how her life had turned out.of course she had brought it on herself..all her issues and the fact she didnt have her daughters was because of choices she had made in her life..she had no one else to blame...anyhow she found it hard to cope with the guily i suppose,went out drinking one night,went home at took an overdose of many tablets.the coroners report documented suicide suffering from mmalegestic poisoning(booze and tablets)..she was 25 years old and left a whole family devestated...
this woman was my mother..and i was the 7 year old daughter in foster care..
ironically enough,i waa adopted by two marvelous parents,and i have thrived and know i have had the best all of my life,and that it wld have been very different if this had never had happend..in some ways im gratefull.which may sound sick.........
but because of this womans actions..my life has turned around and been wonderfull,i couldnt of asked for better parents as the ones i have now
