    suicide statistics

    Discussion started by haunts - Jan 20, 2005

    in the united states somebody dies of suicide every 18 minutes, 80 suicides a day
    out of that its approximately 64 men and 16 women
    deaths per year
    suicide 29,350 homicide 16,765
    among adolesents and young adults suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death

    the youngest recorded suicide attempt was a 2 1/2 year old, the attempt was made with his mothers medication
    "joey" is a 7 year old. his birth was an accident, his entire life his parents openly joked about about how he was the accident that happened in the bahamas and they never really thought much about it.
    one day joey was being a 7 year old kid and was running around the house being crazy and knocking stuff over, according to his mom he was being a bit more aggresive than usual. she started screaming at him because she couldnt get him to calm down and the statement i wish you were never born slipped out of her mouth. joeys first reaction was to open the front door and run into traffic on a busy street that the family lived on.
    he lived, the driver hit him but it wasnt fatal. when he woke up at the hospital at the bed side sat his mom, when he was asked why he did it he responded with you always said i was an accident. i knew you didnt love me, and you just proved it.
    imagine how much family therapy it would take to fix that one.
    doctors use a technique called play therapy to get answers out of kids after events like this.

    st.augustine once stated that judas was named eternally damned for "killing" jesus but for killing himself.

    i am doing a report about suicide for a class in school, i will be posting a bunch of the results on 12oz when im done with it but it will be a few months.
    until then this is all you get.

    Fuck that, my mom has told me several times that she wishes I was never born, and you don't see me jumping in front of a bunch of cars.

    The trick is to make it look like an accident. Because it'd be pretty damn embarassing if you fucked it up.

    In fact, I found an old short story I wrote for school when I was thirteen about a grown man who fucks up killing himself. Damn dude shot his neck instead of his head. It turns out that he didn't really want to die, but after all the isolation and ridicule he felt after the botched attempt, he did it the right way. CO, baby. CO.

    GLBT Teenagers make up up to 30% of all youth suicides. Young gay men are twice as likely to attempt suicide as straight men of comparable age and background.

    FIREARMS AND SUICIDE

    Although most gun owners reportedly keep a firearm in their home for “protection” or “self defense,”
    83 percent of gun related deaths in these homes are the result of a suicide, often by someone other than the gun owner.

    Firearms are used in more suicides than homicides.

    Death by firearms is the fastest growing method of suicide.

    Firearms account for 60 percent of all suicides

    thanks for the info nekro, dkab

    weapon x, your story reminds me of another story. in the culture of the inuit indians they believe that suicides okay if you are choosing to suicide because you are elderly or feel like you cant contribute to the tribe anymore. but you have to go around the tribe and ask everyone elses permission to do it 3 times. its common practice in the tribe that all you have to do to suicide is walk out of the tundra and you are generally dead in 10-15 minutes or so since they live in the arctic.
    so there was this guy that felt he was too old to contribute anymore so he went around and asked everybodies permission 3 times and everybody agreed. so he left to go die. well about 8 minutes into freezing to death he decided it was a bad idea and that he had made a mistake so he turned around and went back to the village he was from. when he returned he found that nobody there would recognise his presence at all. basically what was going on is that by going through with the ritual of asking everybody he had completed an age old ceremony of death to their culture. so basically everybody treated him as if he was dead. the elder in the village thought something had to be done about it so he decided to move the guy to a different village of the same tribe to start his life over again.
    well word got around about what happened and that village responded the same way. again he was outcasted and considered dead. he hung himself a few days later.
    i think that was about 10 years ago if i remember correctly.

    so yep, there it is. thats what your story reminded me of.

    Suicide rates are generally higher than the national average in the western states and lower in the eastern and midwestern states (CDC 1997).

    In 2002, 132,353 individuals were hospitalized following suicide attempts; 116,639 were treated in emergency departments and released (CDC 2004).
