Suicide - Thought for Nurses


Blogger Wounded Healer said...

Thanks for sharing your personal story. Very brave. I will try to keep your words in mind as I start my clinical rotations.

I think people don't want to take the threat of suicide seriously because it's too traumatic and scary to actually face. But if someone is letting out a cry for help, we should all do our best to listen.

I had a friend in college who committed suicide without warning. No one has any clue/idea he would do it. So I agree with what you're saying... if someone is giving a sign, we should take it seriously.

You're right...many times there is no "sign" , no plan voiced...the family left behind combs their memory...crushed by guilt. No body knows how they have touched anothers you touched mine. This was a beautiful way to discuss such an ugly and untalked about problem. Thank you.
