What Would You Do?

Suicide is not rich. Suicide is not famous. Suicide does not discriminate. It happens. Leaving loved ones behind to grieve and wonder why. Every day lives are lost to suicide. Know the warning signs.The following is from the website:

These signs may mean that someone is at risk for suicide. Risk is greater if the behavior is new, or has increased, and if it seems related to a painful event, loss, or change:

  • Talking about wanting to die or kill oneself
  • Looking for a way to kill oneself
  • Talking about feeling hopeless or having no reason to live
  • Talking about feeling trapped or being in unbearable pain
  • Talking about being a burden to others
  • Increasing the use of alcohol or drugs
  • Acting anxious or agitated; behaving recklessly
  • Sleeping too little or too much
  • Withdrawing or feeling isolated
  • Showing rage or talking about seeking revenge
  • Displaying extreme mood swings

     What would you do if you knew someone who felt this way? Addiction can play havoc on the mind. Addiction can take you to the the point of no return. Never say to yourself……”It’s not my problem.” Everyone has problems that go unseen or noticed. Take the time to understand the signs and symptoms of suicide. You just might save a life.
