Myths About Suicidal Thoughts

Psychiatrist, Mumbai

Know more about myths and facts related to Suicidal Thoughts

Hi! I am Dr. Neha Shah, I am a consultant psychiatrist in Mumbai. 10th September was World Suicide prevention day and what better way to honor this day than to talk a little bit about the myths surrounding suicide.

The suicide rate in India is 21.1 per lakh population, that’s one of the highest in the world. But most of the time we are immune to it and it doesn’t affect us until we lose someone close to us and that’s when there is a ripple of tragedy that affects not only the person himself but also the people surrounding, his family, his friends and everyone who knows him.

So what are some of the suicide myths?

The first one, is people who talk about 'wanting to die' are just asking for attention and are not really going to kill themselves. But the fact is most of the people who attempt or commit suicide usually talk about it first. They are in pain and usually do seek help. So always take any talk about suicide seriously.

The second myth, people who attempt or commit suicide are weak, but the fact is that anyone can commit suicide. These are people who are in pain, who have lost hope and do not see any other way. Often they suffer from depression or other mental illnesses so they need the right help.

The 3rd myth is that suicide occurs without any warning sign and one cant tell when someone will attempt suicide but that’s not true, there are always warning signs. People who are suicidal often talk about wanting to die, they may express their plan to someone. They use languages like it will be better if I die nobody is going to miss me, life is not worth living, you'll be sorry when I am gone, I don’t have to go through these much longer. So beware of these little expressions that they may use. They may start giving their possessions away. They may start calling on people saying good bye. They may buy weapon. They may write a suicide note. So be alert to these signs.

The most common myth is one should never talk or ask anyone about suicide because this gives them idea and encourages suicidal behavior. This is absolutely not true. If you think a person is suicidal please ask them about it and ask them if they have a plan. Most of the time talking about it simply dissipates the suicidal urge. Remember asking them will let you know their intentions and getting them the help they need. So these are some of the myths that surrounds suicide. In keeping with the theme of world suicide day lets connect, communicate and care and spread a positive ripple of awareness.

Thank you. If you would like to get in touch with me please contact me through lybrate.com

Hello, obsessive compulsive disorder is an anxiety disorder in which a person has persistent unwanted thoughts. This obsession with unwanted thoughts in the mind leads to distress and certain repeated behaviour or actions, with the compulsion to control that distress. This disorder is genetic or runs in families. Natural homeopathic medicines, with zero side effects, can of great help in the treatment of obsessive compulsive disorder. Made of natural substances, homoeopathic remedies strike at the root of the problem and work towards complete cure. The selection of remedy depends upon your individual symptoms. So in order to get proper treatment please share your symptoms. Thank you.

Causes of Depression-

Causes of Depression-
Depression Causes-

There is no single cause of depression. You can develop it for different reasons and it has many different triggers.
For some, an upsetting or stressful life event – such as bereavement, divorce, illness, redundancy and job or money worries – can be the cause.

Often, different causes combine to trigger depression. For example, you may feel low after an illness and then experience a traumatic event, such as bereavement, which brings on depression.

People often talk about a "downward spiral" of events that leads to depression. For example, if your relationship with your partner breaks down, you're likely to feel low, so you stop seeing friends and family and you may start drinking more. All of this can make you feel even worse and trigger depression.
Some studies have also suggested you're more likely to get depression as you get older, and that it's more common if you live in difficult social and economic circumstances.

Stressful events-
Most people take time to come to terms with stressful events, such as bereavement or a relationship breakdown. When these stressful events happen, you have a higher risk of becoming depressed if you stop seeing your friends and family and you try to deal with your problems on your own.

Illness-
You may have a higher risk of depression if you have a long standing or life-threatening illness, such as coronary heart disease or cancer.
Head injuries are also an often under-recognised cause of depression. A severe head injury can trigger mood swings and emotional problems.

Some people may have an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) resulting from problems with their immune system. In rarer cases a minor head injury can damage the pituitary gland, a pea-sized gland at the base of your brain that produces thyroid-stimulating hormones.
This can cause a number of symptoms, such as extreme tiredness and a loss of interest in sex (loss of libido), which can in turn lead to depression.

Personality-
You may be more vulnerable to depression if you have certain personality traits, such as low self-esteem or being overly self-critical. This may be because of the genes you've inherited from your parents, or because of your early life experiences.

Family history-
If someone else in your family has suffered from depression in the past, such as a parent or sister or brother, then it's more likely you will too.

Giving birth-
Some women are particularly vulnerable to depression after pregnancy. The hormonal and physical changes, as well as added responsibility of a new life, can lead to postnatal depression.

Loneliness-
Becoming cut off from your family and friends can increase your risk of depression.

Alcohol and drugs-
Some people try to cope when life is getting them down by drinking too much alcohol or taking drugs. This can result in a spiral of depression.
Cannabis helps you relax, but there is evidence that it can bring on depression, especially in teenagers.
And don't be tempted to drown your sorrows with a drink. Alcohol is categorised as a "strong depressant" and actually makes depression worse.
Depression can be triggered by more than one factor.

Hello lybrate-user. Over thinking or negative thought process can be a root cause to many emotional difficulties. If not given attention in the right time, it becomes similar to a habit, and keeps one away from achieving success in many areas of life. I will recommend you to speak to a proffesional counselor or psychologist about your thoughts. During your interactions/counselling sessions, you should be able to understand the reasons behind your fears or anxiety issues, and also learn to deal with your emotions effectively. Best wishes, Rashi Laskari.

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

I am 21 year old. And I been hurted in my head a year ago when I was travelling in a car so a big jerk came and the car jerk on that so my head was hurted from the car roofs and that time it was just the pain for hours. But after a week it started creating problems like I feel that my concentration and memory level is been decreased. It has been year passed what should I do. It could be a blood clot or what.

Hi. It's unlikely that the impact would have created memory loss for you. If you are worried about there being blood clot then it's better to get checked/scanned than to live in speculation. Visit a neurologist and discuss your concerns.

Response prevention is the best way to avoid doing things repeatedly. That is whenever you get an urge to repeat , you should avoid it. This may be difficult but if you make up your mind, you can and you will. Nothing is difficult in front of your mind. We human beings are gifted by that by god. We can do miracles if we are strong and determined. Always give positive affirmations to yourself. Dont loose hope. Every problem has solution and it lies within us. You have to find a way.
