Something that I have been interested in is suicide. I know That sounds weird but it is just a topic that I wish to learn more about. I remember listening to David Draiman talk about how suicide has affected him personally. In the beginning to the new hit single on their new CD Indestructible, "Inside The Fire" David talks about how someone in his life committed suicide. And how we should try to help those in need of it. I just recently saw the video to this and it got me thinking about everything. The video consists of his girlfriend committing suicide and how he loses his mind and ends up in a mental asylum. Most people think that someone who attempts, or commits suicide is a freak and should be put away. If someone in high school attempts suicide, if they every come back to that school, that person would be alienated and most likely be more incline to attempt again. When i hear that suicide is a cry for help, I think that is a load of crap. People say that to make others feel good.
One thing that I am 100% sure of is that a person that attempts suicide, needs help. I would think that they need real help because something must have been wrong with them. From a religious stand point, suicide is the ultimate sin. It is just something that is told is bad. I think that religion is just a lie, so its not a religious problem but it could be a social problem if anything. It is ironic that it is always the quiet ones that are the ones that have the most rage inside them.
Suicide is an important topic that has always been an issue. as I have explained before, the people that attempt need help, but they need constructive help, not just "your messed up take pills" help.
I, unfortunately have experience with suicide. I did not attempt, but i know people who did, 2 almost died. I talked to a family friend who is a therapist and she said that when someone attempts suicide, they go right to a psychiatrist, not a psychologist. They get the higher care first. I found more info on this from a Wikipedia article as stated in my last topic.
This makes me feel unsettled. There is so much on suicide, that must mean that a vast majority has attempted it. That is a problem we need to fix fast. If not, the would can be in a spiral of depression.
