Suicide is a permanent solution to a problem that is only temporary, why is it important you may ask? It is the act of someone intentionally killing themselves and it takes the lives of approximately 40,000 Americans every year. It’s also important because someone is more likely to die from committing suicide than them dying from homicide, there’s a ratio of 2:3, meaning that for every two people killed by homicides, there are 3 people that have committed suicide. Many people that commit suicide are going through a crisis or they’re just getting bullied and not treated right, they are just not at the right state of mind and they just feel overwhelmed and want to end everything at once, even if it means their own lives. Suicide doesn’t always occur in just people that have mental problems or things like that, Suicide can occur in healthcare, like when a patient that can’t afford help or the medical procedure, they can end life in a painless manner.
In healthcare, there is something that is called Volountary Euthanasia which is a procedure of ending someones life in a painless manner. It isn’t legal everywhere in the world, it’s only legal in Belgium, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Switzerland, and in the United States the states Oregon and Washington. According to medicalnewstoday.com they talk about how there are two types of Euthanasia, there is the first one which i mentioned, Volountary, the second one is Non-volountary which is when the patient is unable to give consent because of the condition they are in, a close family member will be the one to decide. These two are types of suicide because of how when it’s volountary they get to choose if they want to suffer or just die.
According to webmd.com the profession that has the most people that commit suicide are Doctors. About every day, a doctor in the world commits suicide, in most of these cases the doctor has either undertreated depression or just haven’t had their depression treated at all. A lot of these doctors see things in the hospital that are crucial to their lives and it is hard for them to be in charge of saving someone’s life and also not being able to save someone’s life. Seeing the same thing every day and seeing people suffer everyday gets hard because you are just going through the same thing.
People don’t just wake up one day and think to themselves, “I want to die today”, it takes more than that, they have to go through things on a daily basis or suffer from something that has happened. A lot of people that try to commit suicide just need someone to talk to, they need someone that is going to listen to them and give them advice, sometimes all it takes if for someone to ask what’s wrong. A lot of these people that try to commit suicide have mental issues, they can’t really control them.
In conclusion, many people commit suicide each day and it’s because of problems that are only temporary. Some people can’t continue to live the way that they do and a lot of people are just hurting badly and they can’t take that pain and they just want to end it. People that are in the hospital and are on the edge of dying and they are hurting and can’t keep taking the pain and rather just die so that they don’t have to suffer anymore.
