What to do when your Teen committed Suicide
16 June 2006 , Everyone feels sad, depressed, or angry sometimes – especially when the pressures of exams, relationships, and friends become too much to handle. Other times, though, feelings of sadness or hopelessness just won’t go away. These feelings may begin to affect many areas of a person’s life and outlook. Someone who experiences very intense feelings of depression or irritability may begin to think about suicide.
Warning Signs of Suicide :-
You may have heard that people who talk about suicide won’t actually go through with it. That’s not true, though. People who talk about suicide may be likely to try it.
Other warning signs that someone may be thinking of suicide include:
talking about suicide or death in general
talking about “going away”
talking about feeling hopeless or feeling guilty
pulling away from friends or family and losing the desire to go out
having no desire to take part in favorite activities
having trouble concentrating or thinking clearly
experiencing changes in eating or sleeping habits
engaging in self-destructive behavior (drinking alcohol, taking drugs, or driving too fast, for example).
When you’re sad, the world may seem dark and unfriendly. You might feel like you have nothing to look forward to. The hurt deep inside may crush your usually good mood.
Most of the time, sadness is because of a loss or separation, a difficult change or disappointment about something, or relationship problems.
You may also know if the person is going through some tough times. Sometimes, a specific event, stress, or crisis – like a relationship breaking up or a death in the family – can trigger suicidal behavior in someone who is already feeling depressed and showing the warning signs listed above.
If you have a friend who is talking about suicide or shows other warning signs, don’t wait to see if he or she starts to feel better. Talk about it. Most of the time, people who are considering suicide are willing to discuss it if someone asks them out of concern and care.
Some people (both teens and adults) are reluctant to ask teens if they have been thinking about suicide or hurting themselves. That’s because they’re afraid that, by asking, they may plant the idea of suicide. This is not true. It is always a good thing to ask.
Sadness makes you feel like crying, and sometimes the tears are hard to stop. Crying often makes you feel better.
I realize it is not easy to deal with the fear of the unknown, however sometimes the fear can be worse than the situation. If you have trouble managing your anxiety of the future, then go to:
